Although my friend has a very valid point I won't let the stark reality of basketball economics curb my enthusiasm. It looks like the NBA is returning to Seattle and that's all I care about. It's not my money and the ownership group is capable of making the necessary financial adjustments. Nordstrom can sell more penny loafers. Microsoft can sell more smart phones. Hedge funds can dabble in insider trading. They will get our Sonics back by any means necessary.
The Sacramento Kings are nothing to write home about, but beggars can't be choosers. The Kings are the only NBA team currently looking for a new home and the opportunity to purchase an NBA franchise is rare. In this scenario you take what you can get. Never mind the Kings roster looks like a D-League all star team, that situation can be rectified in a few short years. Besides, who says a change of scenery, a better fan base, and a seafood diet won't turn these kids into better players. I know dungeness crab and fresh halibut does wonders for me and maybe it can help with the attitude of #15.
