I cant blame Seattle for these feelings, they were screwed.

The situation with the Sacramento Kings bears watching, the agreement broke down between them and the City of Sacramento recently. Anaheim was once mentioned as a destination for the Kings, but you never know how these things will play out.

Some Sonics fans (not all of them, just the ones who don't know how to move on) are still upset about the Sonics being moved to OKC and becoming the Thunder.

I like how this was conveniently posted after the series became 3-1 MIA, though.

This is just harmless fun. It's not like they're burning OKC jerseys or causing trouble like the Cleveland fans did when Lebron left.

In any event, merging the two logos looks pretty neat.

There was a similar thread posted before the series started. It also mentioned Cavs fans cheering for OKC (and had similarly photoshopped logos).

I am assuming the people at the game last night were from that group "Save Our Sonics" or whatever. I didn't see the leader of the group, but he has gone to several games and had seats right behind the bench or somewhere else really visible, decked out in Sonics gear with either a flag or sign or something. It makes me wonder how all of them have the money, not only for the travel, but for the seats. Those seats last night must have easily cost that group of 5-8 at least $15,000.

I understand their plight. I watched that Sonicsgate documentary which allowed me to become a little more familiar with the whole case. I still think they're being a little too bitter. Wanting a team back is always going to happen, and they'll probably get it, but I feel like what they did last night is just a giant waste of money. No need for the sour grapes to be taken out on a team of players who didn't choose for the move to happen...it's not like Clay Bennett was on the bench...

Also, on a side note, there is no way in hell Newark deserves a team. No no no.

No they weren't.

No one showed up to Sonics games, the city did not want to pay for a new arena, and no one in the Seattle area wanted to buy the team. Fair weather fans risk losing their team(s). Period.

You would think that Seattle would have learned this after losing the Pilots, and almost losing the Mariners.

If a new Sonics team emerges (which the city is working on) fans better show the &$%@ up, even when the team is terrible.

And St Louis will never get a team because of the whole ABA thing.

No, the ABA thing isn't the problem (although the Spirits did have dismal attendance numbers if we're keeping score). The problem is St. Louis struggles to support the 3 teams it has now.

This is not true (other than not wanting to pay for a new arena). Key Arena has a capacity of 17,072 for basketball. In the Sonics' last full season before they announced the move, they averaged 15,955 fans (93.4% capacity) for a 31-51 team.

We can "move on" when we get the Sonics back. I'm sure there are still a few in Baltimore who are sore about having the Colts ripped from them, and they've at least got a new team and a Super Bowl to relish in.
