Of course there are countless other factors at play.  Marketing, future arena deals, TV market size, globalization, and so much more will likely cross the minds of the men making this important decision over the next couple of weeks, and rightfully so.  We can try to predict each owner’s personal incentives and what the league’s priorities are, but for now all we know is that yesterday kicked off a few weeks of serious deliberation for a small group of rich guys that will have lasting consequences for millions of people. Meanwhile the rest of us will wait impatiently. Feb 21, 2013; Los Angeles, CA, USA;  NBA commissioner David Stern talks to the media outside the Nokia Theater as he arrives for the memorial service for Dr. Jerry Buss who passed away Feb 18, 2013.

I definitely like the name "SuperKings" more than "SuperSonics". 

This whole back and forth has been exhausting. I'm not an NBA fan (prefer NCAABB - Go Zags!) But, being a Seahawks fan, I obviously follow a lot of Sonics freaks on twitter and they've been ridiculous. Extreme highs when anything optimistic comes out from the Hansen group and extreme lows when KJ tweets anything remotely hopeful on Sacramento's side. I just want them to decide soon one way or another so we can move on to whatever step is next, whether it be finding the next possible option or breaking ground.
