    I'm the last person to get excited about basketball, but I love that an independently wealthy man is using his own money to make this deal happen. The mayor and they county executive love to be in front of a camera like they have a say, but this man is bankrolling the entire project himself. I respect that.

    I said my final goodbye to Professional Basketball when they took the Sonics away. I will never attend another Pro-Basketball game. That said,...I can't see what could be " Smelly " about a private business owner that is willing to invest hundreds of millions of his own money into the Seattle area. This just seems like a good deal for fans and non-fans of Pro-Basketball alike.

    investing in Unicorns..........
    Either this guy knows something we all don't (like are the Mariners and Seahawks joint investors), or he's betting on fairies and unicorns. Unless ego demands THIS location, IF you want to bring BBall and the NHL to Seattle, buy in alternative locations.
