No one know more about losing a franchise more than Cleveland sports fans. Seattle fans are going through the same thing since the league approved the sale of the team to Clay Bennett, an Oklahoman whose idea from the beginning was to ensure Seattle’s failure to upgrade or replace Key Arena and then move the team to Oklahoma City.
The Sonics are to Seattle what the Browns are to Cleveland. Forty one year history is hard to replace and the NBA will not approve the addition or the replacement of the Sonics anytime soon. Not in three years like the Browns.
There is a petition that was created by Cavaliers fans urging Dan Gilbert to stop this. You can sign the petition and help Sonics fans keep their forty one of history in Seattle where it belongs.
