We are one step closer to a resolution in the Sacramento Kings/Seattle SuperSonics saga after the NBA's relocation committee made a unanimous recommendation to deny the request to relocate the team to Seattle, according to several reports. This does not totally rule out the chance for relocation, but it would be pretty odd to see the NBA Board of Governors decide against a unanimous decision from the relocation committee. The Board of Governors will meet May 13 to formally vote on the matter.  The reaction from Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson came quick on Twitter and was obviously one of excitement. That's what I'm talking about SACRAMENTO!!!!! WE DID IT!!!!! — Kevin Johnson (@KJ_MayorJohnson) April 29, 2013 I've never been prouder of this city. I thank the ownership group, city leaders, but most of all the BEST FANS IN THE NBA!!! — Kevin Johnson (@KJ_MayorJohnson) April 29, 2013 The next question is whether there will be any sort of legal action ta...

  • Clay Bennet stole the Sonics from Seatlle after he "gave his word" that the team would NOT BE RELOCATED - now he supports a decision to deny Seattle of obtaining a team, when the Seattle fans have always shown HUGE support of the NBA. I think it is fair to say that Stern absolutely hates Seattle - or maybe the other owners are afraid of a younger entrepreneur who knows how to make sound business decisions?? The team owners (including Bennett and Stern) should be ashamed of making a poor business decision. Clay Bennett should have ZERO say in this decision, seeing that he deceived the Seattle fan base when he bought the Sonics and said he would not relocate the team. what a lying piece of ****!
