David Stern Hopes Seattle Gets an NBA Team Within 5 Years


The city of Seattle recently approved a plan to build a new arena that would house pro basketball and hockey teams. NBA commissioner David Stern says that he’d like to see a hoops team return to Seattle within five years. Per the Boston Globe: “Commissioner David Stern offered this little nugget on the future of basketball in Seattle, which just approved a new arena plan when talking to reporters in Milan, Italy. ‘It would be my hope that within the time frame that you mentioned, five years, that if everything works out perfectly, there would be a new arena and new team in Seattle. That’s always, for the board of governors, but I know that many governors are favorably inclined.’”

    Stern is half the reason they left in first place. Keep our city’s name out of your mouth you toad-faced goon.

    It’s never good to wish ill will upon someone like David Stern. So I’ll spare you all from being bad and do it for you. Eat s*** and die Stern, I hope the first Sonics game you attend a ball comes into the stands and puts you in a coma so you can think about what you’ve done.
