    The NBA is stupid, and this is why it's failing. You turn down the bigger more stable wealthier markets in favor of a sinking ship like Sacramento... you deserve to die. The only good part of todays decision is, we get to sit back and watch The Sacramento group's B-S plan fall to pieces and their city go bankrupt... they don't have a working plan just watch and wait, they've already drank the poison.

    I can't wait until...
    the Kings and the NBA detail the amount of public dollars going into this new "arena for the wealthy." Talk about being held hostage -- it's standard operating procedure in pro sports these days. And I believe that Sacramento and the state of Californicate are EXTREMELY short on public funds, aren't they? Wow. I'd be just as against a new arena in Seattle if it required a couple HUNDRED million dollars of public money, which Hansen's deal clearly does not. Bend over and take another one, Sacramento taxpayers! But hey, good luck with those schools and those potholes and that officer shortage and all that....

    What does Stern have against Seattle?
    I'm pretty p!ssed right now. At a statement Stern said at the very beginning. He said "my part will be short. I have a game to get to in OKC". Talk about twisting the knife in our back..... Stern is not being truthful about something. I think he is mad, and vindictive about Seattle because we didn't bow down and vow fealty to his greatness in 2008. The league will be better when he is not around anymore. Will we care about the NBA then? Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the Sonics. But Stern.....ohhhh....I'm seething.......

    turn it around publicly
    Time for Hansen and Ballmer to publicly announce they are no longer interested in discussions with the NBA and then have the mayor state "if the nba wants back in our city, we will entertain their offers that include a commitment from them. Otherwise, we will not be discussing this further." Then the city can no longer be used to get other cities to spend money on arenas they don't really want to pay for. Let the league know that if they want access to the #13 market in America, it's their turn to belly up and make it worth our while.

    Stern
    I actually wouldn't want a team while Stern was in office anyway. Don't want him to have the satifaction of even being part of a team in Seattle. Stern has ruined the NBA.

    yep. done with them.
    They will just continue to use Seattle to force other cities to build new arenas. And in the end next time Seattle again will not have a team. Going to laugh when the arena never gets built in sad-sac town.

    It's a bigger disappointment to us who wanted.....
    ...NHL 1st, w/o being a NBA contingency. That's the way it goes, at least, for another year. Further, this clarifies what the Maloofs must do, and thats their issue with the NBA re: ownership transfer on NBA terms. Best Wishes and Good Luck on that one! See you in court. GO CANUCKS!!

    Is it a national Holiday...
    ..when Stern leaves? Is Darth Vader really a cheerful, friendly doorman in disguise?! Is Silver (his extended protege) no better than Raul Castro?! It's all a year away, a year not here soon enough. "Goodness gracious" (thx, blog monitor). And then some.
