Default Imagine you were Gary Payton and...

you know that the sonics no longer exist,

and clay bennett owns the sonic memorabilia (including the retired jerseys),

gp is a first ballot HOFer...

I'd refuse to attend or endorse any retirement ceremonies.

Who the hell would want their number retired in a different city with the franchise sporting a new name? Lol.

Earl Monroe didn't mind when his Baltimore Bullets jersey was retired by the Washington Wizards.

Although the move was messy GP and SK will have to look past the fact they're in Oklahoma which will be years from now and accept it as being the Sonics Franchise instead of the OKC Franchise.

Or why not just invite the Sonics fans to Key Arena and retire their jerseys Larry Bird style.

I'm sure Clay Bennett can't take their banners with him.

RBP that sounds like a good idea,if you know anybody with ties to the team or w/e you should suggest they do it as a special event with the fans being allowed to come inside Key Arena for one last time to watch it.

The difference is, it's the same franchise owned by the same guy and he didn't spurn a fanbase by moving the team a city over.
