Best comment on the ESPN page after the Lakers game.

"Earl Clark should demand a trade not enough talent around him."

EC3 playing great basketball. Kobe is what's killing that team, though. Gasol has 25 on 15 shots, and Kobe has 26 on 32 shots... Give 8 of those to Dwight and he'd have 20 points, too.

He's always played like that.

The problems:

1. Mike No D'Antoni
2. Dwight looking like he doesn't wanna be there
3. No D'Antoni
4. Dwight in the 4th quarter :lol:

Kings are moving to Seattle, it's official. And apparently PJ is going to be the head of the organization. Heard that one before, but this time, since he won't have to travel, it might be true.

I feel bad for fans in Sacramento, but this will be good for the Kings. Or Sonics. Or whatever.

If Sacramento had to lose their team, at least Seattle got theirs back. Too bad they had to lose KD first. I think they're going back to the Sonics name, too... so who gets to claim the Sonics history? OKC or former Kings?

Jackson could put the people in place that can manage DMC.

odds are he brings in Shaw as HC, but he should hire SVG.

Stan and DMC might clash, but at least you know Stan could teach him defense, and he already knows how to build an offense around a dominant big man. give Stan someone like Tyreke, and he would arguably have one more weapon with the Kings than he ever did with the Magic (a dynamic wing who can create his own shots, get to the line, but still find other players).

It would have to be "shared history" between the new Sonics and OKC.

Check this article out from 2/17/12.

http://blogs.seattleweekly.com/dailywee ... sonics.php



The championship banners and trophies stayed in Seattle at the Museum of History and Industry, while most of the equipment was shipped to Oklahoma City. (In addition to a basketball team, Bennett's haul reportedly included 150 courtside seats, 24 office chairs, three televisions, 200 CDs, a sound-effects machine, a basketball inflater, radios, headphones, and a replay monitor.) The Sonics name and history, however, received joint custody.

Technically, the rights to the name "Seattle SuperSonics" and their old logos belong solely to Bennett. But he promised not to use them in Oklahoma City, and agreed to turn them over to the new team's owner (presumably Chris Hansen) at no cost, as long as it meets with NBA approval. Hansen is a diehard Sonics fan, so its likely he would ask permission to bring back the name. And, since David Stern already screwed the city once, it's hard to imagine the commish saying no.

During yesterday's press conference at City Hall, Mayor Mike McGinn was asked whether a new team could and/or should resurrect the Sonics brand. "You're getting way ahead of the game, here," he cautioned. But then he added, "Yes, absolutely it should be called the Sonics."

The Sonics stats, meanwhile, are currently part of what's termed a "shared history" in the settlement agreement. That means that the Sonics records still stand, but totals for Thunder players are added to the mix as well. When, for instance, Kevin Durant scored more than 30 points in seven-consecutive games in 2009, that was considered a Sonics/Thunder franchise record. If Seattle gets a new team, they too would lay claim to the old stats, which has the potential to be thoroughly confusing for record-keepers and announcers.

Thanks, i hope we never have to go through something like that.

They will indeed be named the SuperSonics.

New Orleans' victory today puts us half a game out of 5th place (draft). However, Anthony Davis injured his ankle and missed the second half--the same ankle that kept him out 11 games earlier in the season.

Unless we get the no. 1 or no. 2, I'm not going to be happy. That means we need to be at least 4th overall, preferably lower.

Pau Gasol just got permanently benched for Earl Clark. Glad he's making the most of his opportunity.

I'm happy for him. I wish he would have had this kind of offensive game when he was with the Magic. He had plenty of opportunities to make a name for himself in Orlando.

Now...in before somebody starts overly criticizing Hennigan for trading Earl.

Kobe just shoved Nash out of his way with all his energy. I sense some tension on that squad.
