The Kansas City Star is reporting that managers at the Sprint Arena are now trying to land the Seattle Super Sonics. Maybe they will have better luck than they did with the Penguins. By the way, it seems like KC might still be smarting from that experience. From the article:
“You have a commissioner who is on the record (supporting a move),” [Tim] Leiweke said. “I believe that team is in play (for Kansas City), and I believe [Super Sonics Chairman] Clay [Bennett] is going to keep the ownership.
“You heard from Clay (on Monday), that wasn’t bull. Clay is one of the more honorable men I’ve ever met. He’s a true gentleman. He’s not using this is as leverage, and he is not putting gasoline on the fire.”
Using Kansas City as leverage? What sort of guy would ever do such a thing?
