The Seattle SuperSonics are Dead.

As always, ignore this post if you don't care, but I had to document my displeasure at yesterday's events in the NBA. June 28, 2007: the day the Sonics died. They're done. Over. Bye-bye. Finito.

We go from the high of the #2 pick, to trading Ray Allen for... excuse me, Wally "Whiney-Little-Bitch" Szczczerbiak (or however you spell it)?!?! The guy who, with the Timberwolves a few years ago, bitched and moaned for a whole game and stomped around like a 2 year-old, throwing the ball to the ceiling and not getting ejected... which got him booed heartily at the Key Arena for the next couple years? THAT guy?!

This was the final middle finger from Clay Bennett (the Sonics owner, not the cartoonist!) to the fans in Seattle. We said goodbye yesterday not only to Ray Allen, but to Gus Williams, Jack Sikma, Fred Brown, Gary Payton, and Shawn Kemp.

Go TrailBlazers. You're our local team now.

It's nice being a football/baseball town, anyway...
