You need a "like" for headlines.
KD doing his best Phil Jackson imitation to influence the refs.
KD with one of the biggest understatements of the year.
This made my day
And since JJ is Puerto Rican, I'll present KD's quote in Spanish, "El es un gran flopper"
WOJBOMB! Kings relocating to Seattle. Heritage issues, anyone?
@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?
@AlexR44 No Spanish for flopper, huh?
@justin_mia @lethalizer Is this a done deal?
+1 presented without comment.
@justin_mia @anonymous12345 @lethalizer So will all the former Sonics fan revert back to their Seattle-loving ways? Or stay with the Thunder?
@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.
@anonymous12345 @Tronchaser @justin_mia Woj reported this on Twitter. This time a much more credible source.
Congrats Seattle, here's our 2nd round draft pick as a gift. We were going to lose it somehow anyway.
Upon being informed of this quote by KD Barea immediately fell to the ground.
@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.
@Fuzzy Logic He fell to the ground before that quote. After hearing this, he refuses to get up.
DId seattle ever pass the bill that would build a new stadium? If not, they wont be getting a team for 2years at least.
@justin_mia @lethalizer depends on how active the group is. they need a front office overhaul
@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.
@dollarbillrussell @PerkPunt wow , full steam ahead. i wonder how much they paid for them. Over/under 450mil?
@justin_mia @dollarbillrussell Cali based so assets might be a little higher. I can see that? NO sold for $350mil right?
"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
Sacramento's only team... that's sad
So, with Seattle getting a new team, does Justin remain a Thunder fan, become a Seattle fan, or does he pull double duty?
The deal isn't even official btw
I wonder if Sacramento fans will come protest in Seattle for 5 years
@thunder_mike no they'll show up when the team comes to Golden State to protest.
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 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.
@lethalizer @justin_mia From what I remember hearing is that Seattle keeps the Sonics history, so I imagine the Kings history will dissappear.
I remember thinking Justin was pessimistic before... Can't wait to hear that applied to the Zombie Kings roster.
I guess we will have a 'real' rivalry now. Something on a really big scale
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"
Feel terrible for Sacramento same way I felt when Seattle team was taken stern needs to step down
I wonder what the rebuild strategy will be. Slow and steady like OKC? or normal large market free-agent spend-fest?
@justin_mia I'm talking about the atmosphere. Maybe not in OKC, but the road games are going to be crazy
As much as I want bball to be back in sea I hate those relocations shit in US sports.
@justin_mia @Lost Ones Just like Schultz did it to the Sonics
@justin_mia @thunder_mike like that males it any better
@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.
@erics @thunder_mike @justin_mia @Lost and that made them leave lol
@justin_mia That's what I hoped to hear.
@alvarex Loved watching the Kings back then...Peja, Webber, Jason Williams. A lot like the Thunder...just a really fun team to watch.
Presented without comment and got 58
@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!
@ssen you have all the right to be a racist.
