Know those terrible Storms that hit much of Oklahoma and Texas on Tuesday, cancelling flights and causing severe flooding? Well yours truly was a victim. I had an early Tuesday morning flight from Houston back to OKC but, after sitting in an airport for seven hours, never got on that flight. I’m still stuck in Houston as I type this at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday evening from a booth at Panera Bread. At any rate, that explains the absence. A few news and notes….
NBA Commissioner David Stern called Seattle’s last-ditch efforts to renovate KeyArena for $300 million a “PR stunt.”
The Oklahoman’s Berry Tramel writes that the Sonics ownership groups holds all the cards in their attempt to flee Seattle.
Some Oklahoma City Council members are again voicing their concern with the city-owned but NBA-use-only practice facility.
Also while I was out of commission, the Sonics got spanked, the Rockets’ historic win streak ended, the T-Wolves owner called out a future hall of famer and the Western Conference standings remained as tight as ever.
I’m rolling with the Heels in my bracket. Who you got?
