Seattle was a strong NBA market for many years, going crazy for the Sonics of Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp, which reached The Finals in 1996. From 1995-99, the Sonics basically sold out Key Arena, and they never averaged less than 14,300 fans from 1991-2007, their next-to-last season in town. The city and surrounding area has a rich tradition of producing NBA talent, including current players Isaiah Thomas, Jamal Crawford, Jason Terry, Marvin Williams, Spencer Hawes, Rodney Stuckey and Aaron Brooks. “Seattle is a far better market than at least 10 NBA cities,” said a very high ranking executive of one of the league’s 29 teams last week.

From the outside now, what are your thoughts on what they’ve done? Vogel: Well, they’ve got some firepower. There’s no doubt about it. I think Myles Turner is a big, big key on that team. How well he develops in his second year will be a big factor in how far they go, but adding Jeff Teague and having Monta Ellis come back alongside Paul George and Thaddeus Young — they have a chance to be a great running team. Al Jefferson and Aaron Brooks off the bench give them a lot of firepower. So they’re going to be deep, they’re going to be athletic, and they’re going to be a great team.
