Seattle!

Makes sense. Take from a loving city to give back to another. Then where are we? Back at square 1.

And dont give me the BS argument of us being a bad fan base. Just don't. Why would anyone in their right mind support these assclowns (maloofs) when they deliberately try to sabotage this city, lie, have continuous extremely low pay roll, and dont care about the product they put on the floor. Show us you care (maloofs), and we will show that we care. The team doesnt have to be good, just SHOW us you are actually TRYING to put a good product on the floor and not cut costs every chance you get.

I just dont understand why you Seattle fans would want what happened to your team to happen to another... Granted it isn't the SAME situation, but we love our Kings

I empathize, I really do. And I know how much it sucks... But I mean, I still want my team back.

If everything was perfect, we get OUR team back from OKC and everything goes back to the way it should be. But we all know that's not gonna happen, so I have to hold out hope for the next best thing... Which is the Kings.

I'd be a Seattle Kings (Sonics) whatever fan if it happened...just wouldn't feel the same attachment as I do now, it being my home team and all. If we do eventually have to move, i pray you guys aren't burdened with the maloofs. i wouldnt wish them upon my worst enemy

Honestly, that's what sucks about any relocation - there are diehard fans that get screwed. My viewpoint though is that if someone has to lose a team it should be somewhere where there are other rooting options i.e. Florida has 2 teams, Texas has 3, California has 4. Ideally, it'd be the Clippers moving to Seattle.

Yeah, as most on this forum now... I'm a 'weird' OKC fan. I don't know how else to put it. I want my Sonics back, I hate that they're in OKC, but I still root for them. It's mainly because of the players though. I want Durant to put together a legacy, and the only way for me to root for him to do that is to root for OKC. It sucks.

I'd basically have two teams if Kings moved to Seattle, with the Sonics obviously being much more important to me.

That's what SHOULD happen. LA is the Lakers' city.

Ideally, give Seattle their team back and ship the Clippers to OKC. That's what needs to happen.

Why? Because who would pass up a team just so a fan base in another city would be able to keep their team. People are greedy. TBH as long as Seattle gets a team back IDGAF about Sacramento fans, i know im a dick lol

I had the Grizzlies AND the Sonics ripped away from me making the closest drive to an NBA game over five hours away so im bitter.

It's hard to put yourself in someone elses shoes but I bet if the Kings move and then another team opts to move to Sacramento you wouldnt think twice about welcoming them back

This is basically what it boils down to.

If the Kings move to Seattle... Sacramento can have my sympathy and pity, but in all honesty I'll cherish the move.

There's a difference between taking the Kings out of Sacramento and taking a team like the Hornets or the Clippers out of there towns. Sure all those teams would be missed by there fans, but Sacramento was known as one of the best and most loyal fanbases in the league since there arrival. With the amount of crap and the god awful teams we've had to endure its absolutely amazing that ANYONE shows up to the games anymore. While our attendance has dwindled the fans still care enough to hold rallies and fundraisers, even make a documentary. Our city came up with a solution, the Maloofs agreed and then backed out. We did our part. Sacramento LOVES the Kings, even after its owners have been sleeping around with other cities, we still love the Kings. I feel bad for the Sonic fans for what happened to them, I honestly do. But anyone who would wish that another fanbase as loyal ours gets a team taken away to satisfy your own wants can screw off.

Seattle Suuupersonics. Bring them back. Gary Payton, Ray Allen, Shawn Kemp, Detlef Schriemph, Sam Perkins, Hershey Hawkins, Dale Ellis, Nate McMillan, Jack Sikma, Rookie KD, Downtown Freddy Brown, etc. Good times. 41 years of history gone in a move to OKC. I'm still pissed.

I don't per se... I want Seattle to have a team. I want Sacramento to have a team (especially as a Wolves fan and the rivalry we had for awhile there). I just don't know what other teams (if any) would be available and would rather Seattle get back a team than a state (even a large one) having 4 teams.

I think Las Vegas should get a crack at an NBA TEam. I mean, isn't that what the 2007 All-Star Game was about, kind of to do a test drive of what it would like to have the NBA in that city?

Plus, the Maloofs own the Palms Casino in Vegas. Seems like a logical move to me.

They own 2% if the Palms Casino. They sold their 98% to cover their debts

Move the Bobcats to Seattle. Then swap a borderline western conference team to the eastern conference based on geography (Memphis? New Orleans?). Done.

The maloofs need to go! I am surprised stern is still allowing them to own a team, there are enough options out there that are a lot better than them. I think it would be best though, to have a team in Seattle and unfortunately for Kings fan's in Sacremento, they are on the short list of teams that could move there. How great would it be to have the Supersonics back in Seattle, the Hornets back in Charlotte and the maloofs out of the nba! Now if only the league stops the Hornets from commiting marketing suicide by rebranding to the Pelicans when there are much better options out there (Brass, Voodoo most notably). ESPN did a poll and there wasn't a single state that thought Pelicans is a good name. Seriously though the guy who owns the Hornets sounds like he is giving his wife too much imput. Pelicans is a joke, it is honestly like an Onion sports article headline.
