The city of Seattle was willing to talk about renovating the Key Arena but Stern wanted none of it because the Mariners and Seahawks had state of art stadiums
It needed luxury boxes which the state and city were willing to talk. But a completely publically funded 500 million dollar arena? Are you serious?
The Thunder renovation is great and I commend them for it, but that building is a dump compared to what Clay Bennett and David Stern demanded from the city of Seattle
You demand the state of the art arena from one city yet take a non state of the art arena from another city
And Seattle fans have already proven they have the same amount of support as the OKC fans do and did it for longer with sh*ttier teams.
Again, I do not blame Bennett for moving one bit, he just is a smart slimeball.
Did everything completely in his power to alienate the city, then he went below the belt to Sonics fans when he demanded an entirely publically funded arena which was just made illegal in the state.
The USA won the Revolutionary War so that makes Bennedict Arnold no longer a traitor right?
