The Seattle Supersonics are no more.
It was difficult for me to even type that sentence. I haven't been around for all 41 years of the team's history in Seattle, but as long as I've been alive there have been Sonics in Seattle. Now the team has died in the settlement between the city of Seattle and the devil . . . er . . . Clay Bennet. Oklahoma gets the team; Seattle gets the name - and the memories. There will be no Sonics in Oklahoma, but the entire organization, under a different name, will move there.
I wonder how the Blazers are going to do this season . . .
