As long as David Stern in head of the NBA you guys can put away your dreams of another team somehow magically appearing. He has a hard on for Seattle and is holding all the cards. Now back to the important stuff like no wind the rest of the week.

I lost interest in the NBA years ago and a part of me does not want to see a team return to Seattle. The league, much like the NFL and MLB have become so obnoxious in their franchise deals and holding long time, loyal cities and their fans hostage for huge profit deals.... I say to hell with them. But for hell sake, if we are going to bring a team back... seriously, the frigging Cow-town Kings? :rolleyes:

At the risk of having a girl stir the pot here, I for one, am ecstatic Seattle didn't get the Kings and will be even more ecstatic if Seattle doesn't get any NBA team. I am an avid NCAA basketball fan, rabid football (both college and pro), and cry with every despondent Mariner fan. I used to live on the east coast and love hockey, got to attend many Ranger games, and one of my alma maters just won the NCAA this year...that said, NBA basketball is a joke. Overly paid juveniles who don't play for 3 quarters and barely play for the last one. It's become, under David Stern, all about "show me the money."

The deal between the City/County and Hanson is a cleverly disguised rip-off (Google Wenatchee arena which had a similar deal and now the taxpayers are eating a sales tax increase because, gasp, the developer is long gone and the revenue doesn't pay off the bonds...I can guarantee you that would happen here...Hanson is "the Music Man" to beleaguered NBA fans).

Ok, off my rant. It was a good day. Thank you David Stern for not liking Seattle!

Thinking about some stillwater fishing this coming weekend!

If the Sonics return, great. If not, not a huge deal to me.
I was actual more excited about seeing some concerts in the new arena then watching sports there.
As long as there is college football, basketball and the NFL, I'm good for my sporting needs.
The downside to dealing with the NBA is David Stern. The guy is the human equivalent to a tench....pure trash fish.

When I lived in Sacramento when the Kings first got off the ground, it was well known that even the boys bassetball (NOT a typo, guys!) from Rio linda High could whip their ass. Took `em a long time to learn which end of the ball went in the net first. I take it they're a fairly decent team now, but they've had years to practice.
