Sacramento Kings moving to Seattle

Just saw the news/rumor this morning. As a Seattle native, I'm very happy to hear the Sonics may be coming back. On the other hand, I feel bad for the fans of the Kings. As many of you know, we were in a similar situation when our team was taken from us and moved to OKC. I hope the news is true and we get another team back. Future Thunder vs Sonics games are gonna be crazy!

Go Sonics!
Go Seahawks!

Who are the Sonics? Is that what the team will be renamed if they move? As a Sacramentan, I hope this doesn't happen. Not from a sports perspective because I hate sports and couldn't care less, but from an economic perspective Sacramento has had taken a lot of hits employment wise recently. Losing the Kings would put so many more people out of work and that's the last thing we need right now.

Imagine the potential revenue from a Supersonics-Thunder rivalry.

Weren't the Warriors thinking about going to San Fransisco?

Thunder-Seatle rivalry would be amazing.

And still no answer on that whole Sonics question. This is what I get for wandering into a sports thread.

When I used to follow basketball, I was a Sonics fan, I was disappointed when they disappeared. I'd like to see them come back. Will the team definitely be renamed? Or would they be the Seattle Kings or something. That doesn't sound as catchy.

They were the Seattle Supersonics (Sonics for short) for 40 years before being relocated to Oklahoma City in 2008. The Kings would essentially be replacing the team Seattle lost.

Hey, that's cool!

I'm not a HUGE basketball fan, but I was quite into the Supersonics back in the 90's. Shawn Kemp, Gary Payton, Hersey Hawkins, Detlef Shrempf, etc. etc. - they had a pretty good team.

Haha, I even bought Kemp's brand of shoe! It was "The Kamikaze".
