Reasonably good article, although this paragraph bothered me:

"The Thunderbirds arrived 10 years after the last professional team, the Totems, left Seattle. The Thunderbirds played at KeyArena until the franchise moved to Kent in 2009."

The Totems left in 1975 (after Seattle was promised an NHL team, and had to lose the Totems to do so). The Thunderbirds did start in 1985, but they were originally named the Breakers (who moved to Seattle in 1977).
