And NO, Seattle ain't getting a basketball team anytime soon. The el-cheap o's that run that city are happy without the crusty Sonics. The city has turned their attention to their gay MLS soccer team. 40,000+ Seattle fans swarm that watered down version of proffesional soccer, less then 4,000 would attend Sonic basketball games.
You guys are really stuck in the middle of no where. Haha. Just imagine how awesome it would be to have the Sonics back with it's current roster. That would've be an instant Portland/Seattle rivalry for a while to come.
Yeah, they're bring that ridiculous MLS idea to Vancouver as well. We even have enough money to build a brand new open air soccer stadium by our cities waterfront.

If someone is gonna bring a basketball team to Vancouver it's gonna be Francesco Aquilini.
