Sonics will always be my 1B team... moved to Seattle when I was 10 and when I moved to CA I worked in the neighborhood of Gary Payton Sr, who gave my whole NorCal basketball team those fugly Glove shoes (but were awesome back in the day) for free.. always gave me Sonics swag and brought a bunch of us into his home to practice. Got to meet Nate McMillan, Ricky Pierce, Detlef Schrempf and the BrickHouse-skee..

I can't wait for them to get a team again. I was so pumped when they were going to take the Sacto franchise but Vivek decided to ruin that and then the team.. oh well. I kinda prefer if Sonics were built through an expansion draft anyways.

Always good to see the love from other fan bases.

Myself & I'm sure a lot of Seattle/Sonic's fans jumped on the Warriors bandwagon when KD came aboard. I actually jumped on during the WCF last year. Watching OKC lose that series was beyond gratifying. :wink:

Scratching out the logistics of moving a team so quickly... Is there a bigger legacy move for LeBron than saying to Ballmer, "move the team to Seattle and I'll come play for your franchise next summer."

They are my 1B as well, thanks to Gary Payton and Gary Payton Sr, my old AAU coach

While we're waiting for the Sonics to make their long desired return, Seattle native Dejounte Murray has a new iconic Sonics-inspired colour sneakers:

Cities which have an NBA team that I think shouldn’t: Sacramento, New Orleans, Los Angeles shouldn’t have the Clippers.
