It’s official. The NBA is coming back to Seattle.
With recent reports stating that the Sacramento Kings have officially been sold to a Seattle-based group led by Chris Hansen, it seems inevitable that the Sonics will once again hold court in the NBA’s northwestern-most outpost.
And while undoubtedly a great loss for the city of Sacramento, the sale is also a much-deserved gain for Seattle and professional basketball as a whole.
All stats accurate as of January 21, 2013.
