No NBA Charity Exhibition Game for Seattle

The city of Seattle will not get to see Kevin Durant in the flesh as it had been anticipating, thanks to the NBA lockout seemingly coming to an end. From the Seattle Times: “NBA players and owners have reached a tentative labor agreement, which will send the players back to work soon. But it means the H206 Classic, a charity game organized by Jamal Crawford to be played Dec. 15 at Edmundson Pavilion, has been canceled. According to the H206 website (www.hoops-206.com) tickets will be refunded by noon Thursday. Crawford and organizers are looking for possible dates next summer to play the game, according to the website.”

    Seattle really needs a team. Anyone who has ever been to a Seahawks game can attest to how great this fan base is.

    Stern does it to Seattle again. Even though it obviously wasn’t deliberate the irony of the lockout ending just in time to cancel a charity game in Sea is pretty crappy for a real solid group of hoops heads…

    Seattle’s best shot at seeing high-quality basketball anytime in the near future is if the Hornets leave N.O. (like they should). Trust me, I’m from the deep south, New Orleans residents would never notice the team being gone. It’s football country down here.

    Who was anticipating this? why would people care about an exhibition game when we used to have an actual franchise for 41 years?
