The Seattle Supersonics have made the break to Oklahoma City. The good news is that Seattle will still retain an NBA franchise for next year. The bad news is that it will be a semi-expansion type. The new franchise will retain the Supersonics name while the wandering franchise will have to establish a new identity on it’s own.
Money, of course, is at the root of the issue. Ethics can take a back seat. For the people of Seattle, at least the issue has been resolved and they can watch a team with ownership that wants to be where they are.Eric Drouant
