Dallas has over 6 million people in their metro area

Football, hockey and baseball were big there but not basketball. OKC didn't steal the Sonics. Seattle had their chance and were too cheap to pony up money for a new stadium. Every city does that now so why didn't Seattle. It's not like they did everything they could to keep the Sonics. They were being cheap a$$es and they lost their team. It's as simple as that. They have no room to whine. OKC did what Seattle wouldn't, provide a stadium
The bold is so true. I don't know why some people think otherwise.

that abberation in OKC can burn - they are merely the seattle sloppy seconds and with dirtbags like clay bennett in charge it's only a matter of time before they pull a Shinn and kill their own futures

LA has twice that number and still doesn't have an NFL team and I don't think they deserve one either

And ever since I've been alive, I've never known anyone in the Metroplex that talked more about the Stars and Rangers over the Mavericks.... even with the hockey team winning a championship before the two.
When I was there, the Stars were trendy and the Mavs were an embarrassment especially when the Cowboys won more games than them one season. If by talking you mean ripping on them then yeah

Well guess what pal, a lot of cities can make that sloppy seconds claim with regard to pro teams particularly all these NHL teams in the U.S. Seattle fans are sad. Talk about sour grapes. No one stole the Sonics from you. You guys had a choice. You could have built a new stadium and kept the team or do nothing and lose it. You chose the latter. Be upset at yourselves, it's your fault that they're gone. Next time, don't be such cheap a$$es. I hope that team does well just to remind Seattle for their colossal mistake in being cheap. A city as rich as Seattle has no excuse not to build their Sonics a stadium.

Because it's not true, that's why.

The only reason why people think that is because alot of you are completley ignorant of the DFW area and the rivalry the cities have had since the mid-1800's.

It's somewhat insulting for you to say Dallas and Fort Worth are the same. The two cities are almost night and day....

you are not only wrong - you are so far out of your depth in this arguement that it isn't even funny

i don't necessarily want to rehash a 2 year old debate - but if you think that is what happened then nothing could be further from the truth

this is just another example of david stern running this league into the ground and it also underscores the importance of ownership in franchises

San Antonio and Los Angeles are the two main ones I can think of. It would never happen but I think it would be interesting to see NFL teams in Boise ID, Albuquerque NM, or Vancouver Canada.
