1. RCF Will Be In Flux For a few. I'm going as fast as I can correcting issues. We should be good to go by Monday. Sorry you have to deal with this bland board until then.

    Found this interesting with rumors of the Kings being up to re-location, wouldn't be surprised to hear about either the Bobcats, Hornets or Raptors as other teams that come up in the conversation also

    Do they just bring back the Supersonics? Or did they see what happened with the Browns and decide to start new?

    Seattle needs to get the Sonics back before any other city can get a team.

    I thought the plan was for them to get a "new" expansion team of the Sonics and not have a team move there.

    Re: Seattle building new NBA arena

    With the state some of these teams are in like the Bobcats and Kings already speaking about moving it wouldn't make sense to dilute the talent pool even more by adding two more teams, at least imo

    It would make more sense to get rid of a 2 to 4 teams or move a few teams like the Raptors/Bobcats to new cities

    YES. Sonics were my favorite team to play in those old N64 basketball games when I was a kid.

    Re: Seattle building new NBA arena

    Imagine how horrible it must feel to be a Supersonics fan. You lose out on the team that just played in the NBA Finals and has as bright of a future as any team in the League with 4 guys that played in this past Olympics and capable All-Stars. What might you have instead? Perennial duds Sacramento Kings, Charlotte Bobcats or Toronto Raptors. It's better than nothing, but only barely.

    Re: Seattle building new NBA arena

    Imagine? I fail to see how any Browns fan needs to imagine what that feels like.








    Also... the Kings have some pretty decent talent. I'd rather have the Kings roster than start as an expansion team.

    All you would have to do with that Kings roster is move Evans as well as Jimmar for picks and a team oriented vet. Wouldn't be a bad build on something like that

    Though the Kings are probably going to need more than just player personal moves

    Re: Seattle building new NBA arena

    Well, based on all the facts that have been presented throughout this thread. I guess we can assume that a team WILL be in Seattle sooner or later.

    No one is going to plan and start to invest Tons of money into a "Maybe" sports facility.

    Now the true question comes out. Which team will be relocated? Also, how can the Cavs pilfer them for their players?

    Seattle receives; the Cleveland Cavaliers franchise
    Cleveland receives; the Columbus Blue Jackets franchise
    Columbus receives; absolutely nothing

    I'd probably kill myself if this happened.

    Now add a team in KC and use the Sprint Center, that way it will be even in the West and East :)
