    This is basically my support for another team to relocate to Seattle. I was really too young to understand the significance of the move then, but after watching the CNN documentary on the move, I saw how it really affected the Northwest. I would really hope a team would return whether that would mean the relocation of a team like Sacramento, Atlanta or Milwaukee, or even expansion. A close rivalry for Portland, I think would be beneficial, considering the closest team to us is Sacramento who isn't close to being our rival. I feel like a Northwest rivalry between Portland, Seattle, and even Vancouver, would be beneficial to the region and even the NBA in general, as it is to the MLS with the Timbers, Sounders, and WhiteCaps. It's just a dream even to get one relocating team to the Northwest, but I really think it would be great to restore some recognition to the Northwest for the NBA

    I always thought the Clippers should move to Seattle. The name fits and it must suck to share a venue with the Lakers. My other thought was that the Grizzlies should move their. The name also fits and why should a western division team be on the east coast anyway? Never really made sense to me.

    They should move Toronto to Seattle.

    Would also like to see the return of the I-5 rivalry.  Good for business.  Those battles between Xavier McDaniel and Jerome were straight epic.

    I don't think an eastern division team should move to Seattle given that they play eastern teams 4 times a year..that's an inefficient way to fly teams around the country. Memphis and the Clips are already western division. The Wolves could move there, that would also make sense. Canada should have a franchise and Toronto is the biggest market in Canada to support one

    I think most Seattle fans would prefer to have the Thunder back home anyway

    Oklahoma would riot if the Thunder left. Jazz also makes sense since Utah has been in mourning since Sloane left. Seattle does have a district named  Jazz Alley. How appropriate is that ?

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
