And a couple people were in the want an NHL team, who cares about the NBA? Camp.
Someone told me: "I wish we could get the arena build and have hockey without having to find a basketball team first. I don't care about the NBA. The Coyotes are available now but we can't bring them to Seattle because no NBA team is? That's garbage. Memphis and New Orleans are off the table, and we can't get the Kings because they're ownership group wouldn't be interested in our terms." I found that take extremely knowledgeable and suprising since the guy who told me that was actually AT a basketball game when he said it.
Sadly welcome to Seattle where they don't want an empty arena.
