    Seattle Kings? Or 'Sonics?

    If the Kings go to Seattle and get renamed the Sonics, what happens to the team history of the Kings? I seem to remember Seattle retaining the Sonics team history along with the name when they got moved to OKC, but what happens to the Kings? Their history get absorbed into the Sonics name?

    I highly doubt the 'Sonics' will ever be back, would be cool though. They will more than likely just come up with a new name.

    I doubt it, Sonics is well known brand. I don't think Seattle will be completely satisfied if they are anything other than the Sonics.

    A person familiar with the decision said that Hansen's group will buy 65 percent of the franchise, which is valued at a total price of $525 million, and move the team to Seattle and restore the SuperSonics name.

    Really? I don't see any way that they don't use the Sonics name.

    Or more importantly what do the fans that committed to the Thunder after being Supersonics fans do?

    They should take sonics name and history back,

    Kings name and history should be shelved until either Sacramento, Kansas City/ Omaha/ cincinnatti or Rochester is given a team, if some of those citys get a team then they bring the kings( or royals) history and name back,


    Altough an interesting idea, the BEST idea would be.

    seattle = Sonics.

    Kings history and name = SELL TO NEW ORLEANS.

    Hornets name and history= Sell to CHARLOTTE

    Bobcats= to hell with that name and pathetic history.

    Sonics fans. Easily. I'm sure everyone would agree.

    Also, most fans just abandoned the NBA. Most hate the Thunder.

    Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Colin Kaepernick walk into a bar... To watch Russell Wilson win the Super Bowl.

    Seattle owns the rights to the Sonics name, it was part of the deal when they left, Clay Bennett agreed to that.

    No doubt they'll be the Sonics. I'm just wondering if they'll use a throwback uniform, or go to a completely different look.
