Thunder need to go back to Seattle

Don't mess up the Kings history by sitting in a vault and having nothing to show for the franchise

OKC has nothing so far. Take them back before they start winning championships

this is assuming initial return is what it's projected to be. but great news for seattle fans.

no new teams. move charlotte or NOLA.

the thunder are building something great in OKC. it would suck to take that away, eye for eye leaves both men blind.

the first two teams are not leaving behind enough fans or history to counter act what reviving the SEATTLE SUPERSONICS would do for the league.

seattle in an excellent, excellent sports town.

Sonics were my 2nd favorite team growing up. My AOL screen name was named after Gary Payton. I want them to get a team back in the worst way, but only if they are still named the SuperSonics because that was the coolest team name in sports.

The Thunder are where they need and want to be. Sucks for Seattle fans but the Thunder are OkC's.

oh yea. those jerseys, the swag, i liked them before i really liked hoops the sport.

bobcats are the best choice, but jordan is a UNC dude. so i think NOLA -> seattle needs to happen. i'll start the bandwagon.

Before the NBA contracts it Will expand

I expect the Seattle super Sonics to return
Las Vegas blackjacks
New jersey for another team since the prudential center is a great NBA arena
And maybe Virginia

have you seen those fans???? do you want them to hate the NBA like a bunch of fans in seattle still do????

you do realize that FANS pay for tickets, buy jersey and watch tv shows about these guys. we make them relevant. you reward good fans.

OKC didn't have to work out. it's not a big market. they could have drafted poorly. they didn't, and their fans rewarded them with a rabid dedicated fan base. to be fair, OKC was also awesome to the hornets post katrina. why punish them when you have two dead-in-the-water franchises that might actually benefit themselves and the league by moving??

makes no sense.

No they couldn't. They drafted the consesus number 2 pick (Durant) number 3 (Harden) and four (Westbrook) A monkey could have done that job, there was no confusion over who should have gotten picked.

Cause he is cold as ice and only cares for himself.

It was difficult to choose between them two for tin man and dorothy, the brainless Artest and the coward gasol were easier match ups.

How could you forget about Key Arena, that place was a madhouse and one of the thoughest places for a road team to play in. OKC has nothing on the old Key.

Kings have a great fan base in Sacramento. Either New Orleans or Charlotte should be moved. I'd lean towards New Orleans, that is Saints country.

A 28 team league would be great, but weird to divide into divisions. i would like to see something like a team in vegas and a team in seattle. then move memphis to the east where geographically, it belongs. seattle could probably get the name supersonics back and they can try and start anew. i like charlotte, but the bobcats is a horrible name for a team. it would be great if they could get hornets back, and the hornets get a name that better fits NO. i think charlotte can be a great place for a franchise, it certainly was when they were the hornets. honestly it's teams like the clipps and nets that share markets with other teams that should move.

Because its not as simple as choosing 4 "currently" crappy teams and saying... "sorry! You sucked at the wrong time, see ya later!". The Kings have an amazing fanbase and have proven that already with their massive sellout streak. If your going to get rid of a team it shouldn't be because they suck...it should be because no one wants to watch them, good or bad.

i could care less who the 4 teams are ... the league isn't competitive and contraction would help tremendously to improve balance

as for sacto... i didn't mention them... you got a complex or something :cool:

Better to get a team the right way than to have a con-artist buy one for you. Don't get hurt falling off the bandwagon.
