Another Blow to Basketball in KC

The Sonics are moving to Oklahoma City. Actually, the team formerly known as the Sonics will be moving to Oklahoma City since the team is giving up rights to the name and colors. What a shocking result to a process that started with some guys who live in Oklahoma City buying a team in Seattle. Never could have seen that one coming.

Anyway, this is all bad news for Kansas City. A team that was adamant about moving is not coming here. And now, the city of Seattle is already working to replace its erstwhile team with a new one (that will be called the Sonics). So now, there aren't any teams with an imminent move, and there is at least one city (two if you believe the NBA would dare go to Vegas) ahead of KC on the pecking order.

On the plus side, if you want to see an NBA game you will soon be able to get to one in less than 6 hours. What a consolation.
