Sonic News

Quite a bit of Sonic coverage in the 3 dailies today, and by Sonic coverage, I mean coverage other than Clay Bennett/OKC/Schultz coverage (which, I think we can all agree, is about as fun to read as a study on snail remains).

Anyhow, the Times, PI, and Tribune all agree that Chris Wilcox will be inked to a 3-year deal, with his salary targeted at either $7 or $8 million per season, or basically what everyone's been expecting for about 2 months.

(It's official - read the Sonics' press release here.)

Buried in Frank Hughes' story at the Tribune was this nugget:

"From here, Sund is expected to offer a two-year, $25 million contract extension to Rashard Lewis in late September..."

Sounds as though Lewis would be getting slightly less than his market value, but it's a good deal for the Sonics. Also of note from the PI:

"Wilcox is expected to compete with Nick Collison for the starting power forward position this season ..."

Really, does anyone expect Collison to have any chance at all of starting over Wilcox? I think it would be more likely to see Earl Watson surpass Ridnour than to see Collison surpass Wilcox, but maybe I'm off base here.

In any event, a good bit of news for the Sonics today, amidst a summer of craptacular headlines. Hooray for us.

Does anyone else hate that Tracy Taylor bitch who does the traffic reports on KJR as much as me? She has the worst voice I've ever heard, it sounds like she's got something stuck in her throat, but not saliva, something much thicker and whiter. I hate that bitch.

Sounds like you have an issue with women in general.

Well, "anonymous," if you're going to mock me by using my pseudonym, then you should try to do a better job of it.

Oh yeah, and Biggie, you're right about Tracy Taylor.

TheBigO said...

Wasn't me dude.

But I don't like her either.

AK1984 said...

Well, thebigo, I must admit that is somewhat surprising to me. As it is, though, the comment was flat-out amusing.

Anyway, that notwithstanding, I'm sure that it was you who wrote the following: "My finger smells like [shit]."

Lastly, shouldn't it be "thebigO" rather than "thebigo" ... ?

back to the topic, it's great to sign wilcox, the team wouldn't be moving forward without that signing.
Talking about the team what's going on with the Oaklahoma city move, do the sonics have a chance of staying in seattle?

TheBigO said...

"Lastly, shouldn't it be "thebigO" rather than "thebigo" ... ? "

Yes I agree but Blogger wouldn't let me do that, ces la vie.

There's always a chance. I'm sure that if the city coughs up the money to build a new arena/fix up the Key, Bennett and his partners would be more than willing to keep the team here. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if this is the plan:

1. City builds new arena under threat of Sonics leaving town
2. Hornets move back to N.O.
3. Bennett sells Sonics for huge profit
4. Bennett receives expansion team for Oklahoma City

Not saying it's written in stone, but I'm beginning to think this is how it will go down.

You could try using the big0 (zero) - lol

TheBigO said...

anon,

Your mom wanted me to put the 'big' part in all caps and bold type.

I happen to like Tracy Taylor. It's fine to voice your opinion, but no need to call her a bitch.
