0 and whatever
John Rohde came up with this curious assertion in the Oklahoman:
With Sonics ownership and the city of Seattle in a testy lawsuit over the existing lease at KeyArena, perhaps having the league's worst team will soften Seattle's hardheaded stance against the Sonics leaving town two years early.
If the Sonics' woes continue and there's little reason to think they won't perhaps the dire circumstances will persuade Seattle mayor Greg Nickels to finally relent and say, "Aw, hell. Take 'em."
Oh, so that's the ticket. Losing teams deserve no loyalty, because, well, they're losers.
I can just imagine the response when, say, Sonics Central gets hold of this.
Update: It's something like this.
Further update: They've killed that particular thread. See Comments.Posted at 11:41 AM to Net Proceeds
