The votes are in. Clay Bennett will now join the Art Modell/Walter O’Malley club. The Sonics fans fought hard, but in the end, the inevitable happened.

Denial is hovering over the situation, and maybe all of the claims that this can be reversed through lawsuits will win out, but it doesn’t seem likely.

“It really doesn’t feel like it’s over here yet,” Sonics forward Nick Collison, who owns a home up the hill from KeyArena, said before the vote was taken. “There’s still a lot of things to do.”

It may not feel like it’s over, but it is. Sorry, Seattle. This sucks.
