NBA denies bid to bring Sacramento Kings to Seattle
If you want more stadiums, move to L.A.
Based on my reading of The Seattle Times, it seems that the National Basketball Association deal was Seattle versus Sacramento, and Seattle lost, at least for now [“Deflated but no surrender,” page one, April 30]. Where was my voice, the one that cheered when we lost the bid for playing roulette with professional basketball teams?
Not even Danny Westneat acknowledged the many people here who don’t want a Los Angeles-style shopping complex or more stadiums clogging our roads.
If Chris Hansen, the mayor and the staff of The Seattle Times want basketball so badly, why can’t you all move to L.A. and leave us to suffer with just two stadiums instead of three or four?
