Rumor has it that the Sacramento Kings maybe moving to Seattle after a group bought out the Maloof brothers...
...and hypocrisy is alive and well in Seattle.
"Oh, boy, the NBA is back..." Or words to that effect.
Do we not remember the pain of losing the Sonics a few years back? I sure as hell do. So I'm supposed to cheer the fact that another fanbase gets
to enjoy the pain that I went through when my Sonics left town?
These aren't the Sonics. They're the bleepin' Kings. Phil Ford. Otis Birdsong. ...and a host of others that I couldn't care less about.
No. No. ...and no. I will not follow this team should it be in Seattle. I don't care about the Kings, or whatever name get hung on
Dennis Johnson didn't play for the Kings. Nor did Fred Brown, or Gary Payton. The Kings didn't win the '79 world championship over the Bullets.
Or lose to the Bulls in six games a few years back. This isn't the team I lived and died with for forty one years...
Cheer 'em if ya want, but don't expect me to.
