@forkboy: Ah well the rankings still seemed to be just the attendance rankings. So I don't know if I trust them, but thanks for the links.
If this leads to a Seattle Sonics team I will be very happy. However, that would suck for Clippers fans so I guess it remains to be seen if this happens (I got the impression Balmer needs to get a majority vote from the rest of the NBA to buy the team out as the minority Clippers owner is saying he wont sell, but this is just from the BBC, I am not huge into Basketball but would love to see a Seattle team again).
I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but the Clippers are staying in Los Angles. I and everyone else would be absolutely blindsided if Balmer moved the team. Like I said in a couple of my other posts the market of Los Angles is one of the best in the US if not the world so it would be a dumb business move to move the team. Also about the sell of the team you have it mostly right so way to go BBC. Yes Balmer needs a majority vote to buy the team, which he just received, but he is buying from the majority Clippers owner. The things about him not selling is sorta true and sorta false. Donald Sterling is the owner of the Clippers, but since he was banned from the NBA he gave his wife permission to sell the team. Donald Sterling though has fought back and was planning on fighting the decision so he could keep his team, even plans to sue the NBA for a billion dollars. But he was recently found to be mentally incapacitated meaning that the selling of the team did not need his approval. This whole situation is rather confusing and I am very much into basketball. I want to see a team in Seattle again too, but I imagine they're won't be one for quite sometime. A group in Seattle has been trying to get a team there for a couple years now, even going as far as saying they would pay for a new arena with their own money (crazy for an owner to do this), and they haven't been able to get a team back up to Seattle. Not many people want to sell their NBA teams now that they are making record profits so the idea of that owner group buying another franchise and moving it to Seattle is unlikely. So the most likely way for a team to come back to Seattle is if the league expands, and I don't see that happening anytime soon either. Just know that you're not alone in your wish to see a NBA franchise in Seattle again.
