  1. Comparing markets, attendance and ownership in Sacramento and Seattle

    Mar 9, 2013, 9:00 PM EST

    We’ve discussed the issues that will determine whether or not the Sacramento Kings stay in California’s capitol or go to Seattle, including the impact of public subsidy support in both cities, the race between the two cities for an arena deal, and what lawsuits pending in Seattle mean to the process. Next we take a…

  2. Friday And-1 links: Rally in Seattle to support new stadium

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Plans for a new arena in Seattle, one that could house an NBA…

  3. Seattle groups lay out arena plan: it starts with finding team

    Feb 17, 2012, 2:12 AM EST

    Seattle

    It’s a start. A good start. Details of the NBA arena plan for Seattle were laid out by Seattle’s mayor and the money behind it, hedge fund manager Chris Hansen, in a press conference that sounded more like a pep rally. They bathed the plan in glowing terms as filled with private investment and risk…

  4. Plans for Seattle NBA arena to be announced Thursday

    Feb 16, 2012, 1:24 AM EST

    Seattle SuperSonics v Denver Nuggets

    Seattle fans are dreaming of the Kings becoming the Sonics (it’s not likely, smart money has them staying put in Sacramento), but it’s not really about the occupant of an arena just yet… If you build it, some team will come. Seattle sports fans want a new home for an NBA (and NHL) team built.…

  5. Sacramento one vote away from losing the Kings last night, but still in control of their destiny

    If you build it sticky-fingered shooting guards will come. And if Sacramento doesn’t approve an arena for the Kings quickly then Seattle has no problem playing Kevin Costner. And let’s not bury the lede here, Seattle almost got their wish Tuesday night as the Sacramento City Council narrowly voted 5-4 to bury a resolution that…

  6. If you build it… Stern says the NBA could return to Seattle

    Feb 8, 2012, 9:25 AM EST

    If you build it… David Stern will at least think about it. There are efforts afoot build a new arena in Seattle, something that the city’s mayor confirmed. Now, I’ve talked about winning the lottery and retiring to Maui next to Don Nelson, just like this arena that’s a long way from reality. But there…

  7. Seattle officials are moving on bringing an NBA team back to Seattle by fall. And the Kings are being discussed.

    There have been better separations of cities from teams. But the move of the Seattle Supersonics from Seattle to become the Oklahoma City Thunder remains the worst in the history of the NBA. It’s not just the forty years of history, the success of the franchise, the passion of the fans, it’s the way the…

    Walt Hazzard, a guy who helped start UCLA’s glory years and went on to a 10-year NBA career, has passed away. Hazzard, 69, had been ill for some time and suffered complications from heart surgery. He passed surrounded by family and friends at UCLA Medical Center on Friday. Hazzard was co-captain and star of the…

  9. New documentary tracks effort to keep Kings in Sacramento

    Oct 26, 2011, 8:42 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    A team of bloggers — more importantly, a team of Kings fans — has started to make a documentary about the effort to keep the Kings in Sacramento. A documentary that talks to everyone: The Kings broadcast team, former team officials, Mayor Kevin Johnson, and fans. Okay, it doesn’t talk to the Maloofs, but they…

  10. Rashard Lewis: Don’t blame me for signing a huge contract

    Sep 13, 2011, 1:38 PM EST

    Rashard Lewis Wizards

    Massive guaranteed contracts are one of the real touch points of this lockout. Fans and owners can say it’s not fair their team has to pay Eddy Curry or Gilbert Arenas when they are not pulling their weight (or even playing at all). Rashard Lewis has one of those contracts. The Sonics signed him to…

  11. Sonics fans kicked out of Howard Schultz book signing

    Apr 8, 2011, 9:02 PM EST

    Seattle SuperSonics v Denver Nuggets

    Howard Schultz still doesn’t get it. Not even close. We need some background here, just to get everyone up to speed. Schultz is the CEO of Starbucks, so I’m already ticked at him about the whole Peet’s thing. But that’s my issue, he has bigger sins. Like buying the Sonics then in 2006 — with…

  12. Barry Ackerley, Sonics owner during ‘80s and ‘90s, dies

    Barry Ackerley, the man who owned the Seattle Super Sonics during most of the 1980s and 1990s and saw his teams be consistent winners and make it to the NBA finals, has died. Ackerley, 76, passed away from a stroke in his Southern California home, the Sporting News reports. Ackerley owned the Sonics for 18…
