Bennett is a weasel that took an all-out approach to take away an NBA team that was a fixture in its state from those great fans and that great state and give it you guys, who are in the middle of nowhere. Smart investing, huh? By the way you're making it sound Seattle/Washington/King County/whatever didn't want the Sonics, which is about as far from the truth that you'll get. You're leaving out the fact that Clay Bennett lied to his and the rednecks' benefit at least half the time, and the guy who had the most say in this on Seattle's behalf, Howard Schultz, was way too passive about the whole ordeal. The way you slurp Bennett and his noble, honest actions leads me to believe this isn't a one-in-a-million type thing, either. At least down there.

The Marlins are based in Miami, Florida. You must be preparing to split the atom.


The Mariners and Seahawks have each received new, state-of-the-art stadiums in this decade. Make sure you know something about the area you're trying to insult, please.

Oklahoma City showed what smart investors do. They invest in their future instead of being a bunch of loser tree hugger liberals like the people of Washington and Seattle in particular.
Smart investors stiff the state of Washington, a very respectable, no a great sports market in favor of Oklahoma ****ing City? You've had one professional team the entire time your city has been in existence, and that was for two years while a hurricane mutilated their original location and they had nowhere to go. What does that tell you, cowboy?

Re: OKC might not be called Thunder

at Thunderstruck being headbanger music. Another epic fail. I hope they play All That Remains at the Ford Center during timeouts so then you can see what headbanger music is.


I also look forward to seeing Chan, thasupes, and any of the other Sonics fans that you are trying to put down getting O.J. Mayo, Rudy Gay, and a team that's far closer to competing than Durant's bunch to root for shipped to their city in due time. Because anyone who's smart knows that a team won't just be subtracted out of a market like Seattle without another team, whether it be an expansion team or the Grizzlies, heading in their direction sooner rather than later.

Re: OKC might not be called Thunder

I am still not sure why people are still crying for Seattle. It happened, it's time to get over it. You're not entitled to a sports team. It's a business. Seriously where are the damn mods.

Re: OKC might not be called Thunder

You want the mods to come in and get everyone to love Clay Bennett and shut up about Seattle? Have fun, buddy. Its not even your forum, what do you give a ****.

This is the last chance we get to clown on these guys until further notice. You can't expect people to get over a 42 year franchise leaving town in half an offseason. Considering the mods were pretty lax about OKC fans trash talking over at the Sonics board, this is about right. Seattle fans are just better at it.

Not that there's anything wrong with lax baiting polices. I think it makes for exciting banter. It doesn't hurt that Seattle fans win these every time, Sonics board or Thunder board.

I don't understand how people like you think we are gonna just get over it within days. I mean how would you feel if some random owner came in and bought your favorite team, and then moved it? In a very un-heartfelt way. He told the city he'd keep do anything to keep the team here. He admitted that wasn't true, that he bought them solely to move them. Seriously, think about how it would feel. Some of us grew up our whole lives watching this team. Quit being such a dick. I don't like people like you.

Re: OKC might not be called Thunder

Oklahoma City and the State of Oklahoma did what they had to do to get a team here. Seattle/King County/Washington didn't. Clay Bennett said well over a year ago he would give Seattle 11 months to get their act together and keep a team. And he spend millions of dollars trying to keep a team in Washington. It would be much better for him as a business man in the long run to keep a team in the Seattle area. The people of Seattle didn't really want it though. If OKC can vote on something to make sure they get a team than Seattle can come up with something also. The city simply couldn't do so that's really what all this came down to. If Schultz kept the team for the same length of time he was eventually going to have to sell it and it would probably have ended up moving anyway. It would have just stayed another year or two in Seattle and going to somewhere like Vegas or Kansas City, or possibly Oklahoma City.

I very much disagree with this. If I lived in Seattle I wouldn't be over this for a VERY long time. I don't even think i'd be over it even if Seattle got an expansion team because they had just gotten some hope of success by drafting Durant. Its just not fair for the Sonics fans.

Re: OKC might not be called Thunder

The Sonics was a pork-barrel project. Getting rid of this organization was a smart, if unsentimental way to go. It doesn't feel good, but it was the right thing to do.

No, it wasn't.
