Well, there goes any optimism I once had. I'm starting to think this isn't just hard-line talking anymore, and that he really does want to take them to OKC. How can you read this and not think anything else? At least we won't have Squatch to kick around anymore. Boy, can you just imagine the buzz-kill when the 10/31 deadline passes, there is no arena deal, and Bennett can't contain his glee that he will be moving the team, yet meanwhile Kevin Durant battles Greg Oden in the season opener (if you haven't checked, Seattle and Portland play each other in the first game of 2007). Yeah, that's going to pretty much SUCK. A lame duck season is one of the ugliest things in sports, and the bandwagon city will abandon ship so fast it'll be shocking. And also sad to only get a glimpse of the young Durant before he's on his way out.
I never thought I'd say this - GO BLAZERS.
