The rest, as they like to say, is history.

A great look at a fan throughout his childhood, and the memories that he attached to each game on the list. Starting from a very young age, not knowing if it were real or not, to a high school aged Peter enjoying hearing a player get the business from his coach. Good times were definitely had by the Edlund family at the Key.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Sonics Blogger Jonas Hyde tells us to have patience, the Sonics will return to the NBA. 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.
