    I mean, it only makes since. That being on the west coast, and a city that probably should get back a team.

    No. The LA market is great for that team. The Lakers will be irrelevant for quite some time, and LA has enough people to sustain 3 teams. It would be idiotic to leave.

    I do. I don't care if LA is a viable market or not. Seattle deserves a team.

    I think it's kinda lame to have two teams in the same city sharing a stadium, so yeah, I'd like to see Seattle get the Sonics back.

    "Should" they, though? Hell no. Los Angeles is too big of a market.

    After their devastating earthquake, Haiti also deserves a team.

    OP logic: being on the west coast and being a city = should get an NBA team. :confused:

    Lol jokes aside, the Clippers are fine where they are.

    A move to Seattle would probably decrease the value of that team by about $500M-1B. I doubt Ballmer does it for what he paid for them.

    Paul Allen owns the Trailblazers, I think you meant Steve Balmer.

    Don't think it makes any sense at all actually. Maybe for a couple of other teams in the league.
