one of the main problems with the key arena deal is that the city of seattle takes in 50% of the money that the sonics generate during homr games. and the reason why you are an idiot, the sonics had a bad year last year, but the year before they were in the playoffs, and lost to the spurs which would go on to be champions, and that was a series that could have been different had rashard and vlade not gone down with injuries, and ray not have gotten injured and played hurt. the main thing the sonics need to do is major changes in thefront office, namely walley walker has to go, he is the idiot that made two of the worst deals in NBA history in signing worthless bid men Jim McIlvane and Calvin Booth to fat contracts, after non-product careers that showed no signs of possible success. he was also the idiot who signed paul westphal and other bad coaches, and whose lack of faith and loyalty drove nate away. look for me next year, i'll be the guy wearing the sonics jersey at nuggets games against the sonics (going to colorado state for school).
