    I hope this goes through. Basketball can fuck itself, but I want a hockey team.

    That came up recently in the NHL thread. I think Seattle would be a great market if Phoenix or Columbus or the Islanders or someone else has to move at some point.

    It might be a while until they see an NBA team in there and even longer until an NHL team becomes available. I guess in the meantime they could fill it with affordable housing for Shawn Kemp's kids.

    Seattle should get rid of all their teams. That would bring down the suicide rates in the city.

    It should be the new home of the New Orleans Hornets.

    But I want St.Louis to get an NBA team...
    What if we split them with you? 20 home games here, 20 home games in SEA?

    The Seattle St.Louisans

    Take your pick from one of these four teams:

    Atlanta Hawks
    Charlotte Bobcats
    Toronto Raptors
    Sacramento Kings

    I think you'd have to go with Toronto, they might have the best complete roster...
    Plus they're almost all foreign, and I like that European-ball feel.

    Valanciunas
    Bargnani
    DeRozen
    Calderon
    Lowry
    Terrence Ross
    Acy

    That's not terrible
