The sports fans of Seattle have longed to fill the NBA-sized void left in the wake of the departure of the SuperSonics -- and one reporter thinks an answer could be on its way.
The key to bringing the NBA back to Seattle could rest within another major league sport -- the NHL, a league that finds itself in ownership turmoil. Scott Burnside, an NHL writer for ESPN.com, joined "The Kevin Calabro Show" on 710 ESPN Seattle on Monday to talk about the turnover in NHL ownership and what it could mean for Seattle.
"They've had bad luck," Burnside said. "They've had owners that have run afoul of the law. They've had owners who simply didn't have the financial wherewithal that the league was led to believe that they had. My sense is, it's just the cost of being a professional sports league ... that in some parts of the United States struggles to maintain a foothold."
