On an unimportant note, I'd like to know how to start a meaningful petition for Chris Hansen to bring back the "Super" to the "SuperSonics". I hated it when they declared they would now be known as the "Sonics". Sonics doesn't really mean anything. Now, SuperSonics means flying at faster than the speed of sound. WAY cooler! Don't know why they did that. And, of course, I really missed the SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUperSONICS! in the intro's... :D

I'm just so happy for my city to get the NBA back. Like I've said before, I was never the biggest NBA fan, pretty fair-weather, but I wanted it badly for our city pride. I'll get really excited when we start hearing news of an NHL team coming here. Pro-Hockey was always a sport that I felt was missing a fan.... ME! Once I hear news of the NHL coming, I'll scour the rule books to learn that sport inside and out! I loves me some violence in my sports, and Hockey is a sport I'm willing to jump into big-time! But of course, when the SuperSonics make the playoffs, I'll be there in all my Band-Wagon glory! :lol:

I agree, SuperSonics is 100x better of a name. It makes me think of Boeing and the futuristic past of Seattle - the space needle, the bubbleator, etc.

It's a shame that when I go to the Seattle Times and read the comments, 75% of the commenters seem to oppose the new team. I personally couldn't be happier with all that Hansen, Ballmer, etc have done to bring back our beloved Sonics.

Im kinda ignorant on the subject, but I thought we were always officially the SuperSonics, but we would be referred to as sonics as a shortened nickname, kinda like the hawks from seahawks and bucs from bucaneers. No?

Can I ask why people wouldn't want Bird as GM?

To me, it appears he did very well in small-market Indiana. It's not a landing place for free agents, so Bird was forced to build that team through the draft. He also had to keep things fiscally responsible. He also tends to build in an old-school, 1980's, Kersey vs X-Man type of team.

In Seattle Bird can build that type of tough team, and be a player in free agency. Sounds like a good formula to me.

Mike Dunleavy Jr. & Troy Murphy are why to me.

I cant remember if he drafted Murphy or not. If he did, weren't each taken about the spot other GM's would?

I swear last year you, peaches and I we're singing the praises of that Pacers squad. It was during the series that Bird came out and told his team to man-up and punch the Heat on the mouth.

I respect your view, but IMO, other factors have to be weighed when evaluating his tenure in Indiana. The same way s you cant necessarily use W's and L's to evaluate Raider HC's.

I thought Bird got fired last season? I might be wrong, they got their act together finally.

Trading for Granger was a good move, but it took 6-7 years for Bird to put a team around him, drafting George Paul was smart and getting George Hill was smart, I don't know if matching what the Blazers offered Hibbert was really exactly smart, he looks like hes regressed a bit.

Most underrated move in the NBA IMO was getting David West, the team got a constant double-double veteran to go along side Granger and Paul.

But honestly I wouldn't want Phil Jackson either, 'specially if it came down between Bird, Jackson, & RC Buford, I'll take Buford with the quickness, the Spurs model should be replicated more often IMO.

Bird retired last year from that job. That team is his build.

As long as Hibbert's there they're a contender in the East.

Oh hell we was all wrong!

Bird was only the President of Basketball operations! Not even the GM! So he wasn't the one who traded Stephen Jackson & Al Harrington for those scrubs Murphy & Dunleavy, that was Walsh! Jeeeeez that was a total Rick Sund/Wally Walker move if I ever seen one.

More-so in 2008, he got his own man and then built what they have now (he also has Pete Carroll type of power with having the final say in all moves), I was all wrong on this!

I'd still want Buford though lol.

Buford's better than Presti, IMO. Durant and Westbrook give Presti alot of room for error.

Buford pulls All-Pro's from late 20 picks.

Cousins went for 23 and 13 last night, I believe. Isiah dropped in 20.

No one saw Westbrook going that early though, and no one thought he was that good though. Westbrook didn't even start at UCLA and was only there one season, and don't forget Ibaka, probably the only guy on the Thunder I have some weird love for.

I'm familiar with Westbrook. That was a ballsy pick at 4.

We'll just sign Duratula when he hits the market.

Which will be when he's 41 years old. KD is more than happy where he's at.

I'm feelin you on the old name. Even though "Sonics" is prettty cool in it's own right, I always prefered the old jet-city psychedelic long form.

So KJ has nothing.

His big announcement was that 19 local investors have pledged $1 million as a part of an ownership group.

And they hope to announce a "whale" soon. Meaning they don't have one.

No he isnt. He hates Oklahoma. He said its a bunch of inbred morons. He regrets signing an extension. He is also tired of Westbrooks "tired routine."

Like I said, I dunno how it's possible with the papers already signed and delivered. The only hope they really have is the BOG saying no to Hansen and CO, and even that is opening up a huge can of worms if they do so.

The have Clay Bennett as head of relocation commitee to still get this by. Stern wants his image polished, Bennett is a person that I think given the latitude and personal involvement won't be neutral about this unless Stern sways the situation with him. Hansen still has to file relocation papers also. This vote of approval is "EXPECTED" to happen in April at a ownership meeting. Thats not to say there cannot be one earlier if they so choose. Stranger things have happened.

The part that they are not stating is the NBA needs a team in Seattle. The Sacramento gate attendance is very poor and I suspect they want to draw fans from a similar base to the Seahawks.

And they want the chunk of change Hansen will be giving them as a relocation fee, and our beer money, our t-shirt money, and our big heavy corporate spenders.

It seems like a conflict of interest that clay heads the relocation committee and owns all the sonics logos until Seattle gets a team then he will give them to Seattle. Yet right now all the sonics merchandise that's been reportedly flying off the shelves in Seattle. Meaning if he approves the relocation he loses some cash income.

Once I hear news of the NHL coming, I'll scour the rule books to learn that sport inside and out! I loves me some violence in my sports, and Hockey is a sport I'm willing to jump into big-time! But of course, when the SuperSonics make the playoffs, I'll be there in all my Band-Wagon glory! :lol:



Well, I have been a huge NHL fan since the late 70's. I must pre-warn you that while there are still the occasional fights here and there and yes even more during a few big rivalry matches, it definitely isn't as fun as old time hockey.

You might well indeed love this website- http://www.hockeyfights.com We have interesting conversations at the forum. :0190l:

You know me, I freak out about everything. And this is very concerning, if the Penguins owner and 24-HR fitness guy are on board, that could tilt this deal. Man I just want the NBA to approve this pronto!

It could, but if the owners do decide to kill this deal, it opens up an entirely new can of worms that I'm not sure the NBA as a whole wants.

Doesn't matter, too little too late. The Hanson group has a binding contract to buy the Kings. What's going to happen if the Sactown group is legit (which is still up in the air) is they will either get an expansion team or another team within a year or 2, Kings to Seattle next season.

Pretty sure the sale has to be approved by the NBA. The Maloofs also surely have a binding contract with the NBA, which I would guess states that should they sell the team, it must be approved by the NBA. The Maloofs could be in breach of that contract, regardless of whether they have a contract with Hansen.

I have been reading more and more articles about this potential deal the KJ and Sactown is putting together and many believe that it has a very good shot to keep the Kings In Sacramento.

Forbes said if the Seattle group buys the Kings, it will help increase the value of all NBA teams by 30%. NBA owners want this to go through.

That's another reason this will happen.
$$$$ > Sacramento to the NBA ownership!

Blitzer, I hereby forbid you from seeking out any information on this topic beyond what we give you here.

Do you go to SonicsRising?

It's a great place to read the info analyzed and discussed by Sonics fans as it comes in. Perhaps it has a tad bit of bias for that reason, but all in all, I'd say it's pretty straight forward and a great place to get readjusted with reality and commonsense while on the rollercoaster.

All the "Sac is in the driver's seat" talk is wishful thinking by Sac fans, don't let it get to you.
