NBA wants to return to Seattle for Chinese market?

“We had heard reports of some interest in Seattle and the name of the person who’s associated with it is not totally unknown to me. I think he came in and I met with him, it must be a year ago. Just a general conversation; he was brought in by a mutual friend,” said Stern, during an exclusive, wide-ranging interview Monday with The Salt Lake Tribune at the league office.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: It’s not about righting a terrible wrong. It’s not about basketball returning to a hoops-mad city.

It’s about money, specifically a multinational company’s desire to profit off the massive Chinese market. This why the NBA is re-considering Seattle.

David Stern and his lackeys at league head office in New York see China, with its huge population, as a gold mine.

Seattle, after all, is a gate-way to China. Stern and the NBA need a team in the Emerald City to fully connect with this market.

Most fans want to believe a new Seattle franchise would be about honouring the legacy of  Tom Chambers, Dale Ellis, Shawn Kemp, Gary Payton, and Jack Sikma.

Some fans want to believe a new Seattle franchise would embarrass Thunder owner Clay Bennett, who bought the Sonics and moved the franchise to Oklahoma City.

Make no mistake about it, the NBA returning to Seattle is first and foremost about money.

Volume 1, 2, and 3 are right here to check out how I arrived to the last two guys. There is so much talent that it is ridiculous. It was extremely difficult to sift through.
