Kings to Seattle

16 posts in this topic

It's pretty much done that they are leaving Sacramento though. They are pissed at the city because think they were embarrassed and plan to enact their revenge by not selling to anyone with plans to keep the team in the area.

Takeaway from Aldridge: Maloofs are spiteful, vindictive people who want $$ & team out of SAC b/c KJ has repeatedly exposed/embarrassed them

Seattle Supersonics.....the Charlotte Hornets......what the hell is going on here. The NBA is getting retrofitted.

If the Kings move, they will be the most relocated team in sports.

Originally they were the Cincinnati Royals who had "The Big O", Oscar Robertson and the Van Arsdale Bros. play for them. Then they became the Kansas City Kings, now the Sacremento Kings and looks like the the Seattle Super Sonics. (Wasn't that shortened to just the Sonics in later years? They really weren't so "Super".)

Right now they are tied with the Braves (Boston - Milwaukee - Atlanta.) and the A's (Philly - Kansas City - Oakland) Of course the Raiders (Oakland - LA - Oakland - San Jose??)

I remember like 10 years ago when everyone was clamoring about how awesome these Maloof dudes were.

Lol still not as bad as George Shinn

Can't wait to have the Maloofs out of the NBA. They don't know what the hell they are doing.

Glad for Seattle, those fans are great and deserve a NBA team again. Hopefully they can get a competitive team on the court quick because those Seattle/OKC matchups are going to be awesome.

Deal is finalized AND could be getting Phil Jackson in the emerald city!

Source says almost living lock Phil Jackson will become front office face of Seattle-bound Kings' franchise. Won't coach. Will mentor choice
