"I swear sir, I was just coming by to tell these Maloof brothers the dangers of selling the Kings."
"Well, yes, I do have condoms in the car, but I swear I wasn't even going to use them. Am I free to go now?"

Can we just merge the Kings and Sonics so we can have the Seattle SuperKings?

Please?

Which missed my point. Both Oklahoma City and the new Seattle Sonics will share team history, including the 79 Championship. In what other league have you seen that?

I mean in general it's funny that they pretend the expansion Browns are still the Browns just cause they and Wikipedia says so. Not only that, people buy it.

I hadn't heard the Sonics thing. If true that passes Browns/Ravens as the most laughable thing in sports history.

From what I've heard, OKC is likely to part with the Seattle history as soon as Seattle gets a team. They want to act like they're born from expansion.

Pretty sure that part of the deal was that OKC had to leave the logos, name, & team history in Seattle. They don't share anything.

The following article has some of the details of the final settlement regarding a future team in Seattle. It was written before the name of the team in Oklahoma City was known.

That team will be allowed to use the SuperSonics' statistical history, although a future Seattle NBA franchise could also stake a claim to share those records.

It's really up to OKC's ownership group. They could renounce the statistical history or stake a claim to it, including the championship. My guess is that it'll become another pissing match. We shall see.

They can "borrow" the actual artifacts (banners etc) and copy them if they want. They can also claim the team's historical statistics. They just can't claim the name and colors.

Hansen is doing to Sacramento what Clay Bennent did to Seattle. Granted he's not being a lying sack of shiat throughout but in the end result is the same.

Plus Hansen will have to pay a relocation fee. Who gets the money? Stern and the owners. So Syern and Bennent profit from this move.

The NBA should come back to Seattle but through expansion. If the Kings aren't doing well fold them.

/Stern can DIAF
//Bennent too, after he EABOD

Hansen: Why don't you have a seat right over there.
Maloofs: Ok.
Hansen: ...What are you doing here?
Maloofs: What, we just came to see Brandi.
Hansen: And Brandi is how old?
Maloof I believe she said she was 23.
Hansen: Try again.
Maloof: She's not 23?
Hansen: I have the transcripts right here. You came here to see a 13 year old girl.
Maloofs: 13? No...
Hansen: This is you? "How old are you?" She says "im thirteen". You say "ur a bad little 13 year old girl looking for sex" "Have you ever done two guys at once?" you ask.
Maloofs: She's the one who wanted us to come over! She kept saying she wanted to buy the Kings!
Hansen: And that makes it okay? A 13 year old can't enter into legal contracts! You're the grown ups, you should put a stop to that!
Maloofs: ...yeah....
Hansen: Okay, I should tell you, I'm Chris Hansen from NBC, we're doing a story on adults who meet teens for sex and NBA team purchases, and unless you have anything else to say to me, you're free to go.
Maloofs: Look, we're sorry, and we'll sell you the team instead at a bargain bin price if you burn this tape.
Hansen: I know you will.

I'm kinda sad that Seattle is getting the Kings. Local rumors had been going around that a group was trying to bring them to KC.

The T-Birds are fun, but they are not even close to the NHL, which I am not speaking to at the moment.

So, since Seattle wants this team to be the Sonics now, what does the NBA do with the history of the Kings? This is one of the league's founding franchises.

I think the Penguins floated the idea back in the dark ages when they sucked real hard and Lemieux was conning a new arena out of Pittsburgh, but I don't think it was serious, just an extortion move.

Okay, well, I gotta say I don't quite get that. You think it's better to create a new team and fold another than just to move an existing team? Why? What happens to players under contract with the folding team?

The Thunder have done everything they can to distinguish themselves from their Sonics past. I expect that they will happily move on and not bother with staking a sole claim to the history. Not that it matters AT ALL.

So what happens to the two championships the Rochester Royals had? Do they just disappear?

Fun fact: The NBA is, by far, the worst league for relocations.  15 out of the 30 teams started out in a different city, with 10 of the 15 non-movers not being the original team in the city (only Boston, the Knicks, Orlando, Phoenix & Portland are their city's original NBA teams).  They're the only US league to have any teams that have been in more than 3 cities, too (the Kings & Hawks, not counting the regional year for the Chaps or the fact that Brooklyn's been based in 8 different towns).

The NBA does move franchises a lot, but that's a somewhat misleading statement. The Spurs started in Dallas as an ABA team but moved to San Antonio pre-merger after only five seasons. The Mavericks were an expansion team and the first NBA team in Dallas. Toronto hasn't ever moved, and unless you go all the way back to World War 2, they're the first club there.

But yeah, when your expansion clubs jump cities constantly and even the biggest franchises are relocated from elsewhere, the league definitely has issues with keeping fan loyalty.

Exactly.  Of those 15 relocated teams, 10 are in the West, with most of them moving due to changes in ownership, because apparently any idiot can buy an NBA franchise, but it takes actual intelligence to make money on it.

Nobody looked higher in those days than big smooth himself Sam Perkins but the man could sure shoot 3's.

On a side note though: As a Sonics fan (the nba has been completely dead to me since they left) i have really mixed feelings about this if it happens. people in Seattle were crushed when the Sonics left and i really don't like seeing it happen to another city. we really did have our hearts ripped out.

I also hope that the people of Sacramento don't get trolled by Seattle fans like okc people did to us, talk about being kicked when we were down. it was brutal.

Lets be better than that Seattle people of Seattle!
