I miss the Sonics!
 
I can't believe the Sonics are gone! I know, its old news, but why did David Stern mess with something good? Seattle played great basketball in the Payton and Kemp and Schrempf days. If only the fans had showed up for games...

i lived on sonics games when i was at ubc. +1 dk.

Seahawks get a new place to play

M's get a brand new park


Sonics get shit on a stick


BYE BYE ... its too bad but if Seattle would build it they woulda stayed

I miss them dearly too, man. Once the Grizz left, we still had the Sonics for a relatively short outlet travel wise to peep NBA games. Now it's Portland or bust, and I've yet to make it down there...

I was planning on going to a bunch of Seattle games after I got my license in 2007 but it didn't happen. The drive to Seattle from Vancouver is only 2 1/2 hours. Now it will take 6+ hours to drive down to portland and I don't think I'll be going any time soon. I haven't seen a live NBA game since 2006.

I like the Thunder.

Gurk 01-13-2010 09:22 PM

Thunder is a shit name and their jersey's are equally as shit. Hopefully the Sonics get a team soons cuz te Sonics had a lot of good history

Belsius 01-13-2010 09:24 PM

Sonics had horrid Jersey's and the name isn't any better then the Thunder.

Gurk 01-13-2010 09:31 PM

Yea it is. Sonics is one hundered times better but that might be because I watched a lot of Sonic the Hedghog lol

jj33 01-13-2010 09:48 PM

Quebec Nordiques will be back by 2015!

"Sonics" comes from SuperSonics, not from the video game. I thought the name was fine. I'd like to see another team in Seattle (or Vancouver) but they've clearly done a great job with the franchise in Oklahoma City (so far).

except for the name, which is just terrible.

On the other hand it does give Vancouver a better second chance at landing an NBA franchise.
