In the back of your mind, you all know it's going to happen. You should have been a little bit worried when Seattle Billionaire, Paul Allen, bought the Blazers. As Paul Allen was signing the ownership papers, you know that he was already plotting ways to move the Blazers to Seattle. Allen knew that the only way to get the Blazers to Seattle is to get the Sonics to leave, and to make the Blazers a team that Seattle fans will love.Thanks to Matt for the tip!
So what does he do? He goes out and hires Mr. Sonic, Nate McMillan, no doubt luring Nate away with the promise that one day soon he will move the Blazers to Seattle. Hiring Nate away from Seattle also destroys the Seattle Sonics franchise, making their departure from Seattle more eminent. No doubt Nate called up some of his millionaire and billionaire friends, including Clay Bennet, and asked them for a favor. Then he probably went down to Starbucks and told Howard Schulz that he had a plan for Schulz to get rid of the Sonics and become a hero again. No doubt Schultz will be there on the day that Brandon Roy announces that he "had a great time in Portland, but is so glad to be back in Seattle!"
