I haven’t really followed the NBA that much ever since the end of “Dream Team” Era from the ‘90s.

Gee, I thought buying a team and moving it was an evil thing. At least that’s what the folks in Seattle said about Oklahoma City.

“””Seattle Looks Set to Get Sonics Back”””

I didn’t know they left. I guess that means I don’t care. Bummer.

I was in Seattle about 30 years ago and they must have been hot at the time because the whole town had some sort of Sonic Fever hysteria going on. Didn’t care then, don’t care now.

taxpayers should never have to spend a dime on sports teams or venues. Never

Just another example; the NBA is half a dozen Globetrotters and
the rest are the Washington Generals.

Washington State has no state income tax. California has a marginal state income tax rate of over 13% for high income earners. Well duh, of course the Kings will move to Seattle.

Sounds like there will be fewer high income taxpayers in the Sacramento area paying for the profligate spending of Jerry Brown and the Democrats. Watch for California state income tax revenue to “unexpetedly” drop.

The Kings franchise will be playing in their different city since the franchise started

Rochester, Cincinnati (first two cities as the Royals), Kansas City, Omaha (as KC-Omaha), Sacramento, and probably Seattle.

They will eventually leave Seattle, too

Too bad all of the win / loss records and hardware will be staying in OKC with the Thunder. So, they’ll be the SuperSonics, a fresh newcomer - until Seattle realizes, once again, that it cannot support an NBA team.

This is awesome!! Sacramento mistakenly believes that having a major sports team makes Sacramento a world class city. Doesn’t work, won’t work and I can’t wait until the Kings leave to hear all the whining in the Sacramento Pravda.

We’re the state Capitol so it’s not exactly like we’re Rio Linda.

" SuperSonics" The Supersonics is stupid name. It was invented when Boeing was planning to build a supersonic passenger jet in the 1970s. Only a few were ever made because of the sonic boom noise pollution.

Why name the team after a defunct aircraft that is literally a relict of the past?

They should pick a name that reflects the character of the city, like the Seattle Gays or the Seattle Potheads.

Possible mascot:
