The Seattle SuperSonics—Bring ‘em Back!
While the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Miami Heat battle for the NBA championship, the city of Seattle is a little upset knowing that Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook should almost certainly be wearing green and yellow out there. Even though the Sonics went through a decade of torture with basketball that was less than mediocre, many college students who never saw the hay day of the Sonics came out to support the rally in hopes to “Bring ‘Em Back”.
Chris Hansen, a hedge-fund manager and investor, is leading a plan to build an arena for a potential basketball team and hockey team. On the day of the rally, people left work early and college students skipped class. Over 6,000 people attended and over 6,000 echoed the voice of the city: Bring ‘em back.
