Will we ever get the Seattle Supersonics back?
« on: August 07, 2020, 10:54:53 pm »

I miss them so much even though I love my Knicks. (I'm a glutton for punishment.) I'm hoping the Sonics will be back someday. Seems to be plenty of popular support from people like KG, Russell Wilson and others.

I do believe the Seattle Supersonics will come back (much like Montreal in MLB), but it might take some time. There is a similar discussion here in Canada about what happened about the Vancouver Grizzlies and whether they will ever be back again. I do think the NBA will have 32 teams before 2030.

Seattle is such a great sports town that I think they have to come back at some point. The Seahawks and Mariners have faithful followings, and there's so much excitement surrounding the new NHL team. I think it's only a matter of time before the Sonics return.

Perhaps with the success of the Seattle Kraken, the league may reevaluate Seattle as a potential place for a team. I'm still thinking that Las Vegas is in play to get the next team. But, adding 2 teams isn't necessarily out of the discussion with a division shakeup.

I just want to see the reaction the building will give Oklahoma City when the Thunder play their first game against the new Sonics.

In fact, go check out Twitter every year when the Thunder get ousted. It's a hoot and a holiday in the state of Washington.

I really hope we do. Sonics fans were great. Washington fans as a whole are kind of wild

I hope Seattle gets a team again. I can guarantee they’d get more love than several NBA teams out there. Doubt it’ll happen soon, but I’d do think it happens eventually

Seattle def needs a basketball team again. Sonics drafted KD, had prime Ray Allen, Gary Payton, Rashard Lewis. The basketball culture was there and sadly it was taken away from the fans.
