Good, can't stand the Maloofs, glad to have them out of the NBA.

Happy to have a team in Seattle and out of Sacramento.

Long overdue.

I bet ESPN doesn't link the Yahoo! article on this. You know, the guys who actually first reported this all happening.

Have a look for yourself in that link. They mention yahoo but the report from earlier in the month.

Kinda ironic because I got a chance to meet a couple former ESPN associates this past week and they told me about how much ESPN steals stories its not even funny. All the "sources" they have are a load of crap especially from Broussard lol.

Look at that story and see how many times they use the word "source"

They mention, but don't link. That's how they operate.

Those would be some extremely impressive acquisitions if so. Nice to know for the people of Seattle that they're trying to get off to a great start.

yo.

^ Agreed.

Larry Bird has done a tremendous job turning the Indiana Pacers around.

R.C. Buford is good as well.

Apparently sacramento interests have till I believe feb 1st to get a better offer. There fan base is [expletive]. I checked there attendance to the games and they never even come close to selling out. Hell against the miami heat they only filled 80% of the seats. That left over 3,000 seats empty. I have looked through about 10 home games of there so far and yet to find a sold out game. Even when the lakers are playing like [expletive] they are still sold out and selling tickets at a high price. Why would any person want to own that [expletive]ty franchise. Moving them to Seattle would bank the new owners a huge amount of money.
