Sunday’s Game Could Be Last in Seattle

"It’s still hard to believe that more and more it’s looking like that team is leaving," McMillan said Saturday reflecting on the franchise’s storied 41 years in Seattle.

"You’ve seen some of these teams move before and go to a different city and it doesn’t feel the same. Seattle has a lot of history there. Even before I came there was a lot of history and tradition. Now you’re talking about that team is pretty much gone."

For McMillan, the subject of the Sonics relocating anywhere – even knowing the team plans to open the 2008-09 season in Oklahoma City – still pulls at the heartstrings of a man who gave 19 years to the Seattle organization as a player, assistant coach and eventually head coach. [Hoopsworld]
