Save the Sonics Gaining Steam!

UPDATE (5:15PM, ET): From Bill Simmons Today: (Note to David Stern: This was your Bay of Pigs. This was your Watergate. This seedy, incomprehensible saga stained your legacy -- it did -- and the sooner you admit publicly that you handled this situation appallingly from start to finish and do your best to make amends, the better off you will be. I'm speaking for all of us here: We don't want to follow a league where anyone's franchise can be basically hijacked on a billionaire's whim. You need to fix this. You need to fix this right now. Back to the column.)

Go to sonicscentral.comto find all the support. Join their discussion!

UPDATE (2:45PM, ET): Henry Abbott comes through: Third Bullet Point

UPDATE (1:00PM, ET):
Henry Abbott of TrueHoop e-mailed me this: "I'm on it. I have also been interviewed this morning by NPR, and a Raleigh NC station about the Sonics." Thank you so much, Henry!!!


Yahoo is now promoting the story: Look Here

We've been working around the clock with Sonics Central and other NBA blogs to get the word out about our proposed campaign. Things are really taking off, but we need as much participation as possible.

If you need any motivation, look at how appreciative these emotionally distraught Sonics fans are for our help. Pleaaaaaaaaaase do what you can to help their cause:

WE CALL ON EVERY NBA TEAM BLOG, EVERY NEWSPAPER, EVERY RADIO TO POST THE ADDRESS OF THEIR CITY'S NBA OWNERS. THIS INCLUDES PEOPLE LIKE BILL SIMMONS AND TRUEHOOP. IN ADDITION, LETTERS SHOULD INCLUDE:

"As a form of protest, we vow to boycott any game next season in which the Oklahoma City Sonics play, whether it be in our arena or watching it on television."

Send all Miami Heat letters to:
The HEAT Group
AmericanAirlines Arena
601 Biscayne Blvd.
Miami, FL 33132

Call: (786)777-1000

Also, please join this petition started by some altruistic Cleveland fans: Petition Here

Thanks for the support. Just putting the word out is great in and of itself, but to go the extra mile as you have is fantastic. Thanks again.
