Presto! Blunder Bumble to Magical Loss!

Former Supersonic Rashard Lewis had 17 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists in three quarters to lead the short-handed Magic over the Blunder in Orlando on Tuesday, 108-94. The Magic led by as many as 30 points before Magic starters went to the bench early, allowing the Blunder to make it appear respectable.

Future ex-Blunder Kevin Durant was held to 12 points, far below his 32.8 average. He also contributed to the lowlights with a game high 4 turnovers! Tosha Sefalosha poured in 2 points on a scorching 1-4 shooting clinic in 25 minutes of 'playing' time. That's two points more than I scored. The Blunder also managed to give up 40 points in the paint. Solid!

Cy Young Award winner Zach Greinke of the Royals was in the audience. Greinke is from Apopka, a suburb of Orlando. Like the rest of America, Greinke was not wearing any Blunder merchandise.

No Tornado Warnings were issued in OKC, nor were there any ZombieSonics sell out warnings issued. In fact, no sellouts this season. I thought OKC 'supported the team'? I suppose a couple more arena rebuilds and an upgraded corndog stand, at OKC taxpayer expense of course, and I'm sure they'll come runnin' to the games! They may have to walk though, because according to Forbes, Oklahoma has the second highest obesity rate in the US.

More Corndogs (literally!) More Losses! More Blunder!

Blunder: 6-6
Next Loss:
Season Outlook: Dry and Dusty. 90% chance of failure.

too funny! first time on here and I got a good laugh. As a nets fan, I can sympathize about having lost your sonics. We lost our NBA team, too. The Nets haven't been an nba team in years.

I get the fact you don't like losing your NBA team. You are aware you had a chance to keep the team, Howie not selling to an out of state owner, actually VOTING on a new arena deal,,, etc.
I have a proposal for you.
If the "Blunder" make the playoffs this year, will you do us all a favor & eat a bullet?
Please?

I noticed no comments about the Thunder kicking Utah's ass. Road Win!
When will you realize that Clay is/was evil, but no more evil than Howie Schulz.

I wonder if this genius realizes that Bennett's demand for his palace of an arena here wasn't going to fly at all, especially since the land he wanted to build it on wasn't even up for sale nor would it ever have been. Learn a little bit about the situation before you run your trap.

"When will you realize that Clay is/was evil, but no more evil than Howie Schulz."

True, they're both evil but idiots as well. And good for the Blunder in beating a mediocre Utah. How'd they do against the Lakers? Oh that's right...

Oh, and about voting about an arena deal, it's kind of hard to vote for something that wasn't even on the ballot in the first place. And why don't you guys in OKC actually come up with the money on something you voted for!? Coming up short with the funds to renovate the Ford Center is pathetic to say the least, especially when Bennett will demand you guys to pay for the palace he demanded here.

how about all them (non) sellouts! savin' cash for CORNDOGS!

Hate on OKC all you want, they are getting better.
I am sure Clay Bennent lied to the good people of Seattle, and their superb ownership group. I don't know it ins & outs of the land/arena deal clay threw out there, but didn't Mr. Stern & the NBA say that you needed to Renovate Key Arena, or Build a new one to keep your beloved franchise?

(non)Sellouts? 98.4 % of seats sold compared to 78.2 % the last year they were in Seattle.
Who supported/supports the franchise more?

Then keep your mouth shut about it. All you heard about was "build a new arena or else" rhetoric. What you don't know is that the land Bennett wanted to build his dream palace wasn't up for sale nor would it have been. How is he going to build an arena on land he didn't even own!? BTW, he had to spend a year to find an arena solution, not his "one and done" deal. Seriously...

"Coming up short on Ford Center renovations?"

Yeah, as in, you guys in OKC couldn't get enough money to get it done. Therefore, you had to scale back on the grand plans for the Ford Center. However, it'll all be for naught as Bennett will be asking you guys to pay for the dream palace he demanded here.

"(non)Sellouts? 98.4 % of seats sold compared to 78.2 % the last year they were in Seattle.

As a Seattle poster has said before, if ignorance is bliss, then the people in OKC have got to be the most happiest people on the planet. I believe auroraave touched up on this one, but it's ignorant and ridiculous to compare the attendances of the Sonics' final season to the Blunder's first season. If you knew your team was about to move, let alone be a horrid team because your owner got rid of the best players as well as cutting all media to them, would you still support them? But something tells me you'll get that chance yourself, especially if Bennett keeps on losing money this way. And BTW, attendance figures/ticket sales don't mean anything unless you guys in OKC sold out every game? Does McClendon's comments ring a bell to any of you!?

"read this, a month before Clay bought the effing team."

Again, ignorance rearing its ugly head from the OKC Troll Brethren. It might help to know that the Key was renovated not that long ago, and for Schultz to come out and say he needs it renovated while contributing very little to it. Well, do you think that would have been accepted? Maybe in OKC, where you guys will do just about and pay anything to be "big league". I guess you guys don't mind throwing your hard earned money away, especially with the Blunder's future in doubt.

"BTW, 9 - 7"

It was only a matter of time till an OKC troll brags about the Blunder's record. Hate to break it to you, sport, but that doesn't mean anything, especially in the first month of play. Now let's see if they can keep it up throughout the year. There's been a lot of teams who start off hot and then crash and burn towards the end.

"Sounds like your state/city government Fu*&ed you guys."

Something we actually agree on. We do have an inept government here, who for some strange reason can't get off their butts and try to figure out a way to get that additional $30 million from Bennett. However, that doesn't mean the NBA and Bennett are off the hook. Fortunately, the NBA is no longer the league they once were, so as auroraave mentioned a couple months ago, perhaps Seattle got it right and let them go. At least we still have two leagues that are doing extremely better than the NBA, as well as the Sounders, who became just the second expansion team in MLS to make the playoffs. Y'know, something the Blunder didn't do in its first year in OKC.

Well, I think I went over everything. Oh, nice try in your attempt to agitate the fan base here.

1994 was "not that long ago"?

THERE'S a case of "ignorance rearing its ugly head"

JAWA, you're a douchbag.

Wow. I didn't even call this fellow any names and he insults me. I am deeply offended LOL. Oh well, it just goes to show that you have nothing to refute back with when you resort to insults and the like. Oh, you're still ignorant as hell too. Learn the entire story before mouthing off, especially on a SEATTLE-BASED BLOG.

BTW, are you guys in OKC be willing to pay for a new arena in a couple of years? Not the lame renovations the Ford Center just received, but the brand spanking-new arena that Bennett demanded here. Especially when he says he needs one in order to afford to keep his star players in OKC since he can't afford them when they're up for extensions.

And you're chest-thumping after beating a terrible Sixers team!? Impressive. Look out NBA, here come the Blunder LOL

Not chest thumnping, but the opposite of what your little blog does.

As far as DEMANDING A NEW ARENA

the Ford Center opened in 2002, the Key Arena opened in 1962.

Hmmm, 7 years old vs ALMOST 50 Years old.
You really aren't very bright

Uh, ok. I see ignorance is still your strong suit, but the Key Arena was renovated in 1994. But I guess in this Blunder troll's mind, it's ok for owners to demand a renovation or a new arena every 10 years or so in order to compete as well as being able to sign the top free agents out there. Y'know, something Bennett will do fairly soon since Durant and Co. will be eligible for extensions next year, in which it's not true that new arenas equal a profit. Care to take a look at other NBA teams with new arenas and see how they're doing financially!?

Looks like the one that isn't bright is YOU, sport, especially since it took you a while to come back with a retort (a weak one I might add), but what else would I expect from a typical Blunder troll!?

BTW (since you're so enthralled with the Blunder's record this year), 84-181, which is the overall record of the Sonics/Blunder ever since Bennett bought the team as of today.
