ESPN’s Emmy Award winning show Outside the Lines today ended with the poll question, “Should the NBA allow the Sonics to move to Oklahoma City?” I thought, no way there’s more than five percent in favor of the NBA moving the Sonics to OKC. So I waited until the end of the show to find out the results.
Turns out, more than 57 percent of those polled voted yes, saying the NBA should allow the move. Talk about a shocker. I didn’t see the total number of votes below the results. I don’t think OTL showed how many had voted. But it was definitely interesting to see that large a percentage being in favor of the move.
I searched for the link to the OTL poll and couldn’t find it. I’m curious to see if SportsCenter will air the poll tonight. I doubt it, however. The Sportsnation poll currently on both ESPN.com’s home page and its NBA home page had a question about which recent NBA trade will have the biggest impact on the playoffs.
