The Kings officially not moving to Seattle

Published on May 17, 2013 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

It was all but a done deal the Sacramento Kings were headed to Seattle, but this is not the case now. On Wednesday the NBA owners voted against the move that would have sent the Kings from Sacramento to Seattle.

The owners rejected the move with a final vote of 22 to 8.

It was sad story when the Seattle Supersonics left Seattle and went to Oklahoma City. The Supersonics left behind 40 years of history. They also left behind a successful franchise and a bunch of passionate fans. Just think right now the Seattle Supersonics would be one of the best teams in the NBA as the Oklahoma City Thunder are now. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook would be dominating in Seattle not Oklahoma City.

David Stern on the Vote:

“It’s my expectation that we’ll be able to make a deal with the Maloofs and the Ranadive group to transfer title of the team in Sacramento. It’s not a certainty but we’re going to work for that result.”

No one can be happier than Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson. Here is what Johnson said on Twitter:

That’s what I’m talking about SACRAMENTO!!!!! WE DID IT!!!!! I’ve never been prouder of this city. I thank the ownership group, city leaders, but most of all the BEST FANS IN THE NBA!!!

The biggest loser in all this news is the city of Seattle. The fans lost the Super Sonics to Oklahoma City already ,and now this news.
