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.

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.

So does Boston.

Been a while since you could say that.

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.
