So the owners voted on the Sonics, and overwhelmingly for letting them move. No big shock.
Mark Cuban voted against it like he said he would, and for good financial reasons (which I find to be by far the most convincing argument against the move; its just bad for the league to add another poor, small market team). Paul Allen also voted against, as obviously the owner of the Seattle Seahawks does not want to permanently piss off the entire Washington state sports fan population.
I'd been holding out hope for them, but at this point it looks like all Seattle is going to be able to do is make Bennett squirm a bit, and maybe blow lots of money on lawyers. Good for them.
Again, I think this is just such a dumb move for the NBA. The Sonics are going to become another team that just does not have the resources to keep up. I pity Durant. He does not deserve this.
