Rivals, Reunited: Could We See Portland vs. Seattle on the 2013 NBA Schedule?

God willin and the creek dont rise, this name comes back, too.
  • God willin' and the creek don't rise, this name comes back, too.

It's been rumored for awhile, but nobody's ever felt strongly enough to bite on reporting it - not until Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports decided to bite today, in a string of tweets that reports the Maloof Brothers have decided to sell the Sacramento Kings to the Hanson-Ballmer group for the sum of $500 million dollars.


This is beautiful news, as one of the worst things David Stern ever did in his once great, now poisoned and tarnished run as NBA Commissioner, was allow the Sonics to be hijacked and dumped in Oklahoma City. But basketball appears to be returning to Seattle, and hopefully, so will the Supersonics name, because the Seattle Kings just doesn't have the same ring, and honestly, nothing that bears the urine-soaked scent of Sacramento should make the trip up I-5 intact.

Now if the NBA would also just finally pull the trigger on a three way trade for the names of the Utah Jazz, the New Orleans Hornets, and the Charlotte Bobcats. And then contract the Bobcats.
