In 2008 the Seattle Supersonics, then the basement dwellers of the NBA’s Pacific Division, relocated to Oklahoma City and swiftly turned into a powerhouse led by perennial All-Stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. Seattle fans were crushed, as 41 years of history, and green and gold memories disappeared.It has been over five years since Seattle fans lost their beloved team, and the city is still mourning the loss with each OKC victory.
Well, I’ve got some good news for all our Seattle based AND1 fans, it looks like you may have a team to root for after all.
There’s news abound that an ownership group is going to be bringing the once-storied franchise back home. Half a Billion (with a B) dollars later, a great fan base gets another chance to root on their favorite team. I think we speak for all of Seattle when we say: a big shout out to Chris Hansen, who caught himself an NBA team this time, and brought the beloved Sonics back home.
