Gone, but not forgotten, the Seattle Supersonics legacy lives on
The Seattle Supersonics are no more. You may have heard about the ugly divorce they had from the city a few months ago. Well, stuff happened, they moved to Oklahoma City, picked an awful lame team name (Thunder), boring stupid colors, and a frighteningly generic logo and uniforms. And wallah, just like that Seattle was a thing of the past.
But the Seattle Times aren’t ready to give it up, not yet. On their website they have a fascinating look back at the history of the Sonics, and any sports fan looking for a good read should check it out.
That’s what a real team looks like. The Sonics had an identity, unique colors, and 41 years of history on their side. The Thunder, well, they have sold out all their season tickets. It’s a start, but they’ve got a long way to go before they become a true NBA city.
