Fair warning to all. Seattle Times news partner My Everett News has the story, along with pictures and a video.

Sonics fans of old must be beside themselves today. An NBA team back in the Emerald City? We wonder how much tickets to watch a new team play in a new arena will cost? To see the Lakers down in L.A., for example,  nose bleed seats at center court: $89… Loge seats behind the baskets: $150. Courtside? In your dreams, baby…
