Golden State V Seattle Preview

Not happening unfortunately but it has been one heck of a ride


Can you believe this is the last Warriors game of the season?. Tonights game may be completely meaningless Monta could go 2-15 and it wouldn't matter or Marco could repeat his summer League performances and it would mean as about as much as Spring Training these days. Still you won't see or hear a meaningful Warriors game until November again. Unfortunately because of the flex schedule ESPN dropped it meaning the game won't be televised so it seems the only way of viewing is NBA League audio or in person.

But moving away from the unimportance of having a meaningless game not nationally televised the reeal issue is tonight with our opponents the Sonics. Never mind their misrable record it's looking increasingly likely this will be their last game as the Seattle Supersonics. Yes a franchise that produced countless stars such as Nate McMillan, Lenny wilkens, Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp is now more then likely to move to Oklahoma. Unlike the Charlotte or Vancouver situations where it became clear these cities didn't care about the Hornets or Grizzlies repectively Seattle clearly still wants it's team. The Arena demands where the City of Seattle believed they should hold firm on the Arena demands foolishly thinking the money could be spent on public ammenities. Even though you can't fault the city authorites for saying no to franchise ownership group that has access to hundreds of millions of dollars on its own they still decided to go ahead and move the team although this needs pending from all the NBA owners this Friday when they finally vote. Should this happen the NBA will have lost out to a great Basketball town with some great knowledgable fans.
