Folks:

All this thread is doing has nothing to do w/ pro hockey in the Pac NW, ALL David Stern and Adam Silver are behind the restoration of the Sonics and the ramifications that resulted when Key Arena (which had already been renovated once) needed to be replaced hence why you're seeing the new SODO/Hansen proposal to replace Key, just as the new arenas (Centurylink/Safeco DID in replacing the Kingdome, IF NOT ATTRACT more tenants ie the Sounders FC and the new Reign FC, that's part of the new NWSL.

All that stems back to King County and state Government preventing Clay Bennett from successfully competing in the Pac NW, which is why the Sonics left and were transformed into the OKC Thunder.... the Business climate in WA did no favors to that fanbase.
