ssen: you have all the right to be a racist.
Presented without comment and got 58
As much as I want bball to be back in sea I hate those relocations shit in US sports.
I wonder what the rebuild strategy will be. Slow and steady like OKC? or normal large market free-agent spend-fest?
Feel terrible for Sacramento same way I felt when Seattle team was taken stern needs to step down
Perks thoughts on the Kings moving to Seattle "At the end of the day..."
Westbrooks thoughts on the Kings moving to Seattle "just gotta stay aggressive"
I guess we will have a 'real' rivalry now. Something on a really big scale
I remember thinking Justin was pessimistic before... Can't wait to hear that applied to the Zombie Kings roster.
I remember how amazing those Sacramento teams were in the late 90's early 00's...those teams probably should have had a title chance if not for that ref screwjob.
WojYahooNBA: The Maloofs are finalizing an agreement to sell the Sacramento Kings to the Hansen-Ballmer led Seattle group, sources tell Yahoo! Sports.
It's pretty much official
I wonder if Sacramento fans will come protest in Seattle for 5 years
The deal isn't even official btw
So, with Seattle getting a new team, does Justin remain a Thunder fan, become a Seattle fan, or does he pull double duty?
Sacramento's only team... that's sad
"The Seattle group's plans, with support of the NBA, is to play two seasons in Key Arena before moving into a new Seattle" via Woj
DId seattle ever pass the bill that would build a new stadium?
If not, they wont be getting a team for 2years at least.
Interesting that this could happen in Stern's last year as commish, under his watch.
Upon being informed of this quote by KD Barea immediately fell to the ground.
Congrats Seattle, here's our 2nd round draft pick as a gift. We were going to lose it somehow anyway.
+1 presented without comment.
WOJBOMB! Kings relocating to Seattle. Heritage issues, anyone?
@ssen you have all the right to be a racist.
@Lost Ones The Maloofs did this to the Kings...
@ILikePancakes It's still the Kings. They will suck for awhile.
@alvarex Loved watching the Kings back then...Peja, Webber, Jason Williams. A lot like the Thunder...just a really fun team to watch.
@thunder_mike no they'll show up when the team comes to Golden State to protest.
@TempBoy Brandon Can't say I won't follow the Sonics if this happens but I won't be "switching teams".
@PerkPunt Yes they passed it and I'm pretty sure construction is already underway. Obviously they'll be people on here more informed than me though.
@Fuzzy Logic He fell to the ground before that quote. After hearing this, he refuses to get up.
@lethalizer Kings will get a lot better with a different ownership group that's for sure.
@justin_mia @Lost Ones Just like Schultz did it to the Sonics
@justin_mia I'm talking about the atmosphere. Maybe not in OKC, but the road games are going to be crazy
@justin_mia That's what I hoped to hear.
wow , full steam ahead. i wonder how much they paid for them. Over/under 450mil?
depends on how active the group is. they need a front office overhaul
Is this a done deal?
@justin_mia Probably, not what I was asking though. What happens to the history of the Sonics? It was inherited by the Thunder, now it seems to be open to discussion. Does Seattle now own Kings' history?
@erics @thunder_mike @justin_mia @Lost and that made them leave lol
@thunder_mike @justin_mia @Lost Ones
I put most of the blame on the city of Seattle in there "go ahead and leave" attitude shown towards Bennett and company.
@Lost Ones @justin_mia @thunder_mike ...it does.
@justin_mia @thunder_mike like that males it any better
@thunder_mike @Lost Ones A big difference in this situation is that Hansen and the Sonics group are being 100% transparent with their intentions.
@TempBoy Brandon @justin_mia
I am a seattle native myself and there is no way im rooting for the Seattle Kings. The overwhelming majority of people in Seattle didnt want to help with getting a new arena because they just approved new homes for the hawks and sucky mariners. Enjoy your mariners! I will ride with the Thunder!
Cali based so assets might be a little higher. I can see that? NO sold for $350mil right?
@PerkPunt @dollarbillrussell $500M
@Tronchaser @anonymous12345 @lethalizer I don't know but if nothing else it'd be great to hear Kevin Calabro calling basketball games again.
@anonymous12345 @Tronchaser @justin_mia Adrian Wojnarowski: "The Maloofs are finalizing an agreement to sell the Sacramento Kings to the Hansen-Ballmer led Seattle group, sources tel Yahoo! Sports" It is happening.
@anonymous12345 @Tronchaser @justin_mia Woj reported this on Twitter. This time a much more credible source.
@anonymous12345 @Tronchaser @lethalizer Daina Falk is David Falks' daughter, she's well connected.
@Tronchaser @justin_mia @lethalizer
A quick google search says that the source of all this is a tweet by some agent's daughter who said she heard it from someone. Yeah, not buying it.
@justin_mia @anonymous12345 @lethalizer So will all the former Sonics fan revert back to their Seattle-loving ways? Or stay with the Thunder?
@anonymous12345 @lethalizer The people at what was formerly SonicsCentral don't seem to think so but others seem to believe it is. Nothing's on paper yet.
From what I remember hearing is that Seattle keeps the Sonics history, so I imagine the Kings history will dissappear.
[...] Kevin Durant thinks J.J. Barea is a *great* flopper [...]
