If the NBA screws Seattle next week, expect a lawsuit. What more can we do? They never gave us a chance to keep the Sonics. If we can't buy an existing team and they won't expand, what choice do we have but to sue? We dropped the lease lawsuit to appease the NBA, it is time they appease us.

Who would sue the NBA? Seattle? On what legal grounds?
