It may not be for a couple years, but with the plan that Chris Hansen cemented with the city, it seems that he didn’t expect immediate results either. But, with the outgoing David Stern, the NBA will be in the hands of Adam Silver, who has said himself he wants the NBA to return to Seattle. So don’t hold your breath as Jonas says, we will see our Sonics back again in the very near future.

A Portlander’s take on the Seattle Supersonics vs. NBA

Seattle

NWSB Editor Bryant Knox gives us all a Portlander’s perspective on the situation regarding the Seattle Supersonics and the Sacramento Kings. It’s easy to sympathize with the city of Seattle, as having a team and a player like Kevin Durant ripped away would be devastating. However, empathizing with the city of Sacramento can’t be ignored, as Portlanders would fight to the death to keep their team.

A huge victory for the city of Sacramento, the NBA Board of Governors voted 22-8 against relocation. And while that was a tough blow for Seattle fans to soak in, today was much more than trying to get the Kings, it was also a day when we could potentially hear about the likelihood of NBA expansion into Seattle.
