It's such a sad shame for Sacramento, however, because here was a team that was supported for thirty years through good and (mostly) bad times. If this deal goes through, and the Kings head to Seatlle, the Maloof Brother should be BANNED from ever owning an NBA team ever again. What they did to the Kings, allowing it to go belly up so they can justify moving the team to a bigger market was simply unconscionable. Kudos to Seattle for getting an NBA finally team back. They never deserved what happened to them considering the fact it was one of the biggest sports markets and had a long and highly regarded history. Personally, I thought that Bennett should have not been allowed to keep any legacy of the Sonics. The NBA should have treated the relocation as they would with have an expansion franchise--have it start off fresh and clean while having Bennett relinquish as all trademark and branding rights along with the history of the Supersonics to the city of Seattle--kind of like what they did in the NFL when it came to the Cleveland Browns.
