Interesting read in the PI this morning from Greg Johns, wherein the city explains the necessity of KJR's Mitch Levy taking the stand, despite the team's vociferous opposition to that.
Essentially, the city's argument is that Levy is uniquely qualified to testify as to how the team neglected to properly promote the franchise, using as an example the failure of the team to allow Kevin Durant to appear on KJR (an all-sports station) more than once the entire season. The city argues that Levy would be a good person to compare Durant's treatment to someone such as Ken Griffey.
Also in the PI, Gary Washburn has an amusing story about Ronnie Craven, a Boston area man who lied to a woman in an online dating service, claiming to be a Sonics' front office employee. Craven was less than contrite when contacted by Washburn:
"I lied to her. Does that mean I can go out there and represent the Sonics? No. Does that mean that I did it to get some (sex)? Absolutely."
Gotta love it.
