they wanted an arena better-suited to make money. so will any new owner. once seattle gets off their a.ss, they'll get that team stern was talking about. the hornets aren't gonna relocate there just because people think it'll be cute to have bball in seattle again
every shortlist of potential locations has seattle at the top, the sentiment didn't originate from boxden. it's not cuz it's "cute," it's cuz they've proven they can support an NBA franchise over a long period of time. any new market would introduce uncertainty and therefore risk. they couldn't work anything out with bennett, but that doesn't mean a different owner wouldn't be more open to negotiations.
