Looks as if the Seattle Supersonics may be coming (back) to an arena near you...

What a mess.

The Sonics now own the Kings history while the Thunder own the Sonics history?

Stern/Silver better step in and remedy that right away. That is redonkulous.

Well, in fairness, we took Mike Pence off their hands. Taking back Mahinmi is the least they can do.

Me too. Great fans. And WTF else they got to do in Sac-Town. I guess Yosemite and Reno
and/or SF is not that long a drive.

Anyway the Wiz can get dibs on the "Kings" name? Hate to see such a good name go to waste.

That'd be a little odd...we represent the "shining example of democracy" yet we embrace the idea of rooting for a bunch of Monarchs.

Washington Lobbyists seems more apt. I personally like Washington Warbirds.

Burger King?
Martin Luther?

JK - just kidding with you, dandridge. I feel for them as well. Seems weird to have Sacramento moving to Seattle, after Seattle moved to Oklahoma City. Sac-town fans were/have been some of the best in the business for quite some time now.

If your not watching the OKC/GS game on NBAtv its a crazy shootout right now, Curry and Martin back and forth, the hustle on both sides is fun to watch

I'm addicted to watching Lakers games.

I know its petty, but watching them absolutely implode is just glorious.

:lol: So Mcgee. That was a pretty amazing play though.

Honestly I was expecting him to lose control, bounce the ball off the backboard only to hit himself in the head at the rim, while simultaneously knocking over 3 teammates resulting in an offensive foul.

I was just noticing how absolutely INSANE Kevin Durant's numbers are this year.

He is leading the league in scoring while ranking 2nd only to Tyson Chandler in TS%!
He is 2nd in the league in FTA's while ranking 3rd in FT%!
He even ranks 11th in 3P% (among those with at least 100 attempts)

He is currently have the 3rd best season of all time going by ORtg among primary option scorers (Usg 25% or higher). His ORtg is 125. Barkley and Dantley each posted 126 once. Durant is outscoring both of them on a pace-adjusted basis.

And what is equally impressive is what Kobe and Duncan are doing at their ages.
