Your dates are off - the Key was renovated and the Sonics played in the T-Dome in 94-95.
The Key itself (or at least the roof) has been designated a historic site I believe, which is why when it was renovated they had to keep the original roof from the old Coliseum. They solved this by simply digging down.
