Will the NBA return to Seattle?
Seattle sports fans are riding high -- their football team just won a Super Bowl (and might win more before they're done) and their baseball team signed Robinson Cano. There's a hole in the Seattle sports landscape, however, shaped like the logo of the SuperSonics. Any talk of bringing the NBA back to Seattle has been at least temporarily put on hold by new NBA commissioner Adam Silver, who said the league has no current plans for expansion, which would be required for a resurrection of the Sonics. Silver didn't say that the league would never expand; only that, contrary to the interests of diehard Sonics fans, it probably won't be anytime soon.
