Bennett To Sonics Players: "Boo Hoo"

I don't see this helping. Things could get nasty in Seattle quickly.

In an e-mail to Oklahoma-based public relations consultant Brent Gooden after hearing some of the Sonics players were upset about the prospect of moving the franchise to Oklahoma City, Bennett responded by writing, "Boo hoo," according to a line of questioning by city of Seattle attorney Jeff Johnson.

To which Gooden replied, "Great response. I would play wherever for half of the lowest paid player on the team."

Clay Bennett is a douchebag. I remember reading or hearing on the t.v. that the city of Seattle was coming up with a new proposal but he essentially squashed it because he made up his mind long ago that he was gonna move the team from Seattle.

And you know what's gonna happen? They're gonna move, be terrible and then the owner will bail out on a bad situation as always happens. Ridiculous.
