Sure people will come to watch in the beginning,but as the losses pile up,watch the attendence plummet.
I hope Seattle is givin a new team in the future.

Even when the team wasn't a contender, we filled those seats. I know it's not cool Seattle lost their team, but that's professional sports. The stands in Seattle wern't filled, for years. Since coming to OKC, it's always a packed house, no matter the opponet. We did the same for the Hornets in their stay here. OKC really wanted a team, and we proved it with a fan base. That fan base had alot to do with the almight Spurs losing, and will do the same to bring home a championship. Attendence plummet? Maybe after a decade and we score our own professional football team, too. But until then, expect to see the (insert name of the highest bidder here) Center to stay full of fans as the city continues to grow in prosperity while not all other cities in the union can say the same. You're television market arguement is exactly what keeps big teams out of this state, because of population. But even if my population is smaller than yours, my fan base is way larger, and it's shown, not just this year. Not just last year, but since day one.
