I came across this interesting documentary about the team formerly known as the Seattle Supersonics, the only Seattle pro sports team to win a championship. Sonicsgate tells the tumultuous end of the NBA in Washington state. The team is now the Thunder and went to a couple games in Oklahoma city. I am happy for OKC, they are great fans and they are super thankful for their team. It's just a lame situation how the franchise left town. In the end, I think the salt on the wound is that the Thunder own the history of the Sonics. So, if Seattle does get a basketball team again, they'll never be able to retire Gary Payton's number or display the championship trophy because OKC has the rights to the team history.
