  • 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...

        I'm sure they will be pleased in watching tyreke evans and jimmer fredette instead of russ westbrook and KD.


        kidding, im sure they are actually thrilled! hope they get the team competitive like the old supersonics used to be.

          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.

                        Wonderful. I bet one of Shawn Kempf's 47 children are old enough to play for them and bring back the glory days. Where da glove at?

                              Shawn Kemp still looks like he's crying.
