BJ'S BLOG 05/01/13 "We Need A Basketball Team"
Yesterday we discussed the sad decision made to keep the Sacramento Kings in California, leaving Seattle once again without a basketball team.
It is such a shame that we to see that we have the ability to provide such a great basketball environment, yet we can’t get this to work.
Chris Hansen has been committed to put good product on the floor, we’ve see what’s happen in Oklahoma City where they developed into a great team after getting Kevin Durant, so we know that if we get a hold of a team, we can take them to the top. The league is designed to have smart people come up with genius ideas to start up a great team!
It’s just hard to believe that they don’t think we’re worthy of a team. We had a piece of crap arena, in a congested part of town and a bad product on the floor. All those three things combined made it so that no one cared about Basketball here in Seattle for a while.
Now we have this amazing offer for a new arena in a different location and have a city full of fans giving their support, yet we are still not being taken seriously.
It seems like the Seattle basketball fan is in an abusive relationship with the league; we are taking a beating trying to get what we want and we’ve been getting said beating since 2008.
I may not be the biggest basketball fan, but I’m a sports fan… and I know what bringing a basketball team to this city would do for us. It would bring us fun, excitement, comradery …it’s what the blue collar workers deserve!
