Oklahoma doesn't deserve a professional basketball team. Let's not kid ourselves, the only reason the Hornets had a following was the Katrina thing, and it wasn't for any other reasons. OKC isn't starved for basketball because they are in the Texas viewing region.
Sure, they haven't exactly burned the house down in Seattle, but they've got a loyal following from the Kemp/Payton days, and they have made an appearance in the Finals, something a few teams can't say for themselves.
Now, let's make one thing clear. I hate the state of Oklahoma. With a passion. I think it's a bunch of slack jawed, sister fucking red necks, and they happen to all congregate in a little town called Norman. (See: Stoops, Bob) So, is this vitriolic rant about basketball coming to Oklahoma based on that? Probably. Is it based on fact? Probably not.
Oklahoma is Texas's mullet. Seriously, look at a map. You've got Texas and this little short in the front, long in the back state above us. God damned, dust bowl ass hats.
Oklahoma, you suck. You are desolate, barren and just ugly. Your highways are the worst, and you penalize me almost $4 for every 50 fucking miles I travel. Your wind is really...windy...and it smells bad, and that angers me. One of your biggest cities spelled backwards is "a slut". Jesus H. Christ, Oklahoma, you're the ass hole of America and you know it.
What were we talking about? Oh yeah, the Sonics should stay in Seattle. Rainy hippies who drink coffee trump moonshine drinking gappy tooth Cletuses any day.
(I don't actually hate Oklahoma.)
(Yes I do.)
