With the economy being what it is these days, you gotta keep an eye out for deals. And I’ve got one for you: Seattle Sonics gear. They’re practically giving the stuff away in Seattle.

Though, I’m not sure if merchandise that will only serve as a painful reminder that your city’s beloved basketball team is no longer there is the ideal Christmas present for a child in Seattle. Nevertheless, Sonics shirts, jerseys, hats, and other assorted garments are selling like hot cakes.

From the Seattle Times:

All merchandise in the Seattle Sonics store near KeyArena is on sale for 90 percent off, one of the most visible signs that the basketball team is long gone from Seattle and ensconced in Oklahoma City.

I’ve been a big Sonics fan since I was a little kid,” said Tom Veatural, from Renton, who walked out of the store with a T-shirt, two jackets and a Sonics jersey, all for $34. The shirts themselves, he said, usually fetched $75. “I came here to get some Christmas presents.”

I haven’t watched BET in a while, can someone tell me if throwbacks are still hot?
