Gary Payton, Still Fighting for Seattle


Brian Robinson of Save Our Sonics has been the voice of fans of Seattle basketball.

Over the weekend, Robinson posted this on his blog at SonicsCentral.com:

I want to thank Gary and Monique Payton for so graciously allowing us into their home today. It is one thing to meet somebody to talk. It is another to be in their house and be treated as kindly and graciously as we were today. GP spared nothing. ...

Oh, and he is really confident a team will be coming. We're setting a few meetings up. ...

GP talked about how we went to the finals together and when I asked about the team he told me about how the team couldn't do it with the fans and that we were all like his brothers and sisters. It was really touching.
