Seattle lost the SuperSonics in 2008 when the team moved to Oklahoma City and became the Thunder. But the Emerald City is on the verge of rejoining the NBA fraternity…unless it isn’t. Bill Littlefield looks into the potential sale of the Sacramento Kings.
In 2008, the Seattle SuperSonics relocated to Oklahoma City and became the Thunder. Only A Game’s Doug Tribou reports on the ongoing frustration among Seattle fans, and the excitement in OKC, as the Thunder go deeper and deeper into the playoffs.
This week on Only A Game, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry…”Sonicsgate,” a documentary about how Seattle lost the NBA team it loved. We’ll also paint the playoff picture for NBA teams that haven’t moved recently, and Wisconsin nixes Nike.
The documentary film, Sonicsgate: Requiem for a Team, tells the story of the Seattle Supersonics and the backroom dealings and courtroom drama that led to the team’s move out of Washington. Bill shares his thoughts on the film.
Will the Sonics leave Seattle? And, if so, will it be sooner or later before they re-settle in Oklahama? Get it? Sooner? We’ll have that story this week on Only A Game. Also, free sledding grabs winter sports enthusiasts by the knees.
