I didn’t remember that. I wonder why they were a failure? One year doesn’t even give a franchise any opportunity to succeed.

They will expand to Seattle and Las Vegas and call it a day. Especially after the US Supreme Court likely legalizes sports gambling in the very near future.

What was so bad about Key Arena? It would be interesting if another team could survive in Las Vegas.

They went bankrupt and got sold to a new ownership group who moved them within one year.


The story appears to be that they started play two seasons earlier than planned because a senator from Missouri was upset at the As leaving for Oakland, causing the Pilots and Royals to fast track things.

Between that and having to pay the Pacific Coast League $1m for territorial rights, they were in money trouble from the start and the shitty stadium they were in didn’t help Matters.

Interesting. I wouldn’t have guessed one Senator would have that much pull.

This won’t be a popular opinion, but I loved the Grizzlies uniforms when they were in Vancouver.

The NBA told Seattle renovations of Key Arena would be acceptable. The city approved and the NBA then called for a new arena. It was a dirty move by the NBA. That is why the city was hesitant on building a whole new arena. Stern was a giant POS who really wanted an Oklahoma City move. Sonics were sold and he knew it to a man with intentions of moving the club. May the Thunder never see a title.

Is there any team in danger of moving or would the NBA need to expand again?



Maybe Memphis?

Things could get interesting with them soon due to an ownership situation but I think their lease with Memphis is solid.


The minority partners of the team just exercised a clause where they either buy the majority owner out or the majority owner buys them out. New majority owners could mean they look to a new city.

Put teams in Seattle and Vegas, then move Memphis and New Orleans to the east.


If the NBA adds 2 expansion teams, they would need to add 1 team to each conference to keep them even. If both expansion teams are out west, then they'd need to move one western conference team to the east for both conferences to be at 16 teams. Hopefully its NO that gets moved to the east

Seattle needs a winner. The Mariners only made the playoffs 4 times in 40 years. Once a decade is terrible. They have the 2nd longest playoff drought in all major sports. They haven't been a playoff team since 2001.

Wow. That's worse than the Cleveland Browns.
