Default Seattle is getting their Sonics back

According to ESPN and Seattle 4 news, the Maloof's are about to sell the Sacramento Kings to the Hansen-Ballmer Seattle group.

Good for them. They got screwed over. Glad to see them get their team back, especially since Sacramento's fanbase is non-existent.

I cannot believe they ever lost the Sonics. They are great fans.

Are they great fans? As I recall the Seattle fans didn't give a crap about them as they were leaving...

Can we rename them the chronics? Better merchandising opportunities.

Stern will find a way to screw it up. He hates the Pacific Northwest.

Fanbase is non existent? Really? They've sold out every game in 17 of their 26 seasons. Hardly nonexistent considering they watched .438 win percentage. They hold 2 of the longest sell out streaks in league history. One spanning 11 years! It's not their fault the Maloofs are shrinking that fanbase over stupidity.

Might want to look at your own fanbase before discrediting another's loyalty.

Honestly, I think they should keep the name.

1. This was an original NBA franchise, and over the years they've changed the name, but kept it in the same theme by going from the Royals to the Kings

2. Seattle is in King County!

The Maloofs are strapped for cash. They've been shedding assets to keep the casinos afloat.

My nephew lives in Oklahoma City and says that for the first 2 seasons and he told me that bunches of fans from Seattle traveled to multiple home games in OKC to protest.

Psshhh. Big deal. Some people are probably just looking for excuses to travel to Oklahoma C.... sorry I just couldn't bring myself to finish typing that.

I always get a kick out of people who come into a clearly-labeled thread and post about how they don't care.

Yeah, Chief's fan comes onto a Denver Broncos football board and starts a thread about the Seattle Sonics basketball team. Sort of like getting harassed in the men's bathroom.



And that goes double for your panty-wad complaint, too.

That's a retarded statement. I live in Sac. The city LOVES the kings and they show well. When the franchise doesn't suck ass, they are one of the loudest fan-bases. The Maloofs ran their finances into the ground, and subsequently the kings and then they wanted the city to financially bail them out. It's hard getting ANYTHING passed in California on the city level in terms of stadium financing outside of Silicon Valley.

Bottom line, your assessment of Sac fans is stupid and ignorant.

I hate that we are doing this to a fanbase, it's almost like what Clay Bennett did to the Sonics fans, maybe with a little less lies and manipulation.

Watch this documentary about the whole Sonics/Clay Bennett situation. It's a crazy ride.
