Prentice to Seattle: Not in My House

According to Chris Daniels of KING-5, it would appear that Clay Bennett is going to be very happy in a few weeks.

Daniels quotes local politician Margarita "Renton, Baby!" Prentice that the KeyArena/Husky Stadium renovation bill is "very, very doubtful" to see any success during this legislative session, meaning Mr. Bennett will NOT have to cut a check in the amount of $30 million to the City of Seattle.

Like sports, anything is possible in politics, but it would appear that the current economic catastrophe has combined with a distaste for the NBA to create a bitter arena soup the legislature is uninterested in eating.

However, with so many franchises in financial peril these days (Indiana, Memphis, New Orleans, the Sonix, etc.), I wouldn't be panicking if I wanted to see the NBA back in Seattle. True, every year which passes makes it more and more unlikely to see a return of pro hoops, but Seattle still has to rank at or near the top of the list of destinations for destitute owners, right? Right?

I'll guess they get them back about 2017 or never,

It won't be Ballmer and shouldn't be. He has put no effort into it.

It will be a large group assembled by a very hard-working managing partner or a large group and a money bags and / or developer partner and they will most likely be looking at Bellevue or Tukwila or a possibly a brand-new Seattle site though that seems unlikely.
