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.
@ssen you have all the right to be a racist.
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
@Lost Ones The Maloofs did this to the Kings...
@justin_mia @Lost Ones Just like Schultz did it to the Sonics
@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.
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
@ILikePancakes It's still the Kings. They will suck for awhile.
@justin_mia I'm talking about the atmosphere. Maybe not in OKC, but the road games are going to be crazy
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.
@alvarex Loved watching the Kings back then...Peja, Webber, Jason Williams. A lot like the Thunder...just a really fun team to watch.
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
@thunder_mike no they'll show up when the team comes to Golden State to protest.
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?
@TempBoy Brandon Can't say I won't follow the Sonics if this happens but I won't be "switching teams".
@justin_mia That's what I hoped to hear.
@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!
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.
@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.
wow , full steam ahead. i wonder how much they paid for them. Over/under 450mil?
Cali based so assets might be a little higher. I can see that? NO sold for $350mil right?
@PerkPunt @dollarbillrussell $500M
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.
@Fuzzy Logic He fell to the ground before that quote. After hearing this, he refuses to get up.
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?
@lethalizer Kings will get a lot better with a different ownership group that's for sure.
depends on how active the group is. they need a front office overhaul
Is this a done deal?
@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.
@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?
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 [...]
