sterling is no dummy -- unlike shultz

he would not have sold the clips to OKC businessmen and think that they had intentions of keeping the team in LA

a last ditch effort???

The Seattle City Council voted Monday to terminate the lease early and collect $45 million from the team's out-of-state owners and allow them to move the team to Oklahoma City.

But the ordinance doesn't take effect for 30 days after it is signed by the mayor, giving residents and basketball fans time to collect enough signatures for a referendum and giving voters a chance in November to overturn the ordinance.


City Attorney Tom Carr was unavailable for comment Friday.
"A referendum is possible," said Ruth Bowman, a spokeswoman for Carr's office.


"If it gets enough votes, it would cancel the ordinance." Beyond that, "nobody knows what will happen."

RBP note: could this drama continue???

I can't think of anything cool about Oklahoma.

This team is only going to have local interest.

Nobody is going to wear their gear.

Every player they draft will sign for less somewhere else.

Even if Bennett thinks he is doing something great for his hometown, how is this a good business move?

Grub,
Are you serious? There is no groundswell of animosity outside of the pac norwest. Man get a life and start building for a new team rather than hating on another place

isnt there awesome bbq in okc? thats what bobby flay said...

or be similiar to other one sport towns (san anton, sacramento)

there will be a few who buy durant jerseys

if youre drafted in the nba and good enough to make the team, you will accept the paycheck

time will tell-- he has spent a ton of money thusfar to get the team there

Granted: The post by, yours truly, the Grubes, had quite a few exclusive adjectives; but, there is no animosity or hatred.

First of all, BBQ might be good, but it is not cool. So, still nothing cool about Oklahoma. NBA players take pleasure in the coolness of their surroundings, best believe it.

or be similiar to other one sport towns (san anton, sacramento)

San Antonio: population 1.2 million. OKC: Population 550,000 and it is the capitol of Oklahoma. Sacramento is the capitol of Cali.

They will sell a few Durant jerseys, until Durant skips town.

if youre drafted in the nba and good enough to make the team, you will accept the paycheck

Their team will probably consist of mostly players that are just "good enough" to make a roster. They will get one big money maker, though. But will they be able to KEEP a big money maker?

time will tell-- he has spent a ton of money thusfar to get the team there

Bennett has spent a ton of money; yes he has. This begs my question. Is this good business?

RBP, Seattle is a pro town. Oklahoma is semi pro.

I am from Mississippi, a pro team should never move here.
