Seattle fans have been waiting a long team for a new team ever since the SuperSonics became the Oklahoma City Thunder and quite frankly–it’s a shame to see what happened considering the potential shown by Kevin Durant and company.
Durant and Russell Westbrook provide the Thunder with arguably the best duo in the league and with the way things ended up last season–there’s a good chance this team could become the league’s next big dynasty. In fact, there’s a good chance that Durant and Westbrook could go down as two of the greatest players of all time when it’s all said and done–which has to be difficult for fans to take in even more.
With the Sacramento Kings most likely on their way out, it’s safe to say no city is more worthy of having a basketball team than Seattle and their fans will back them up for it. This is a city that was frustrated to see the SuperSonics leave five years ago and while they may not receive the type of stars like Durant and Westbrook–it would still be nice to see them have some sort of team again.
Who knows, maybe a new city is just the thing a team like the Kings need considering how long it’s been since they were truly contenders. Sacramento fans may be disappointed with the idea of their team being on the move, but there’s no question that Seattle deserves to have a team again after everything they’ve missed out on over the last five years.
