“If is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it”. Upton Sinclair

Well the NBA will ratify the OKC relocation today.  They were coming anyway, but most of the politicians wanted to give them an extra $100 million tax break.  Big money and lobbyists turned up the heat - think about it - spend a little money getting a law changed, get a $100 million.  Wow, what a deal!

THE NBA RELOCATION COMMITTEE HAS ALREADY VOTED UNANIMOUSLY 7-0 FOR  RELOCATION BEFORE ANY INCENTIVES, NBA OWNERS HAVE NEVER EVER GONE AGAINST A RELOCATION COMMITTEE WISHES.

WHY ARE THE SONICS PUSHING SO HARD?  OKC OWNERS WANT THE TEAM IN OKC - WANTING BONUS MONEY DOES NOT MEAN THEY NEED IT.

OKC CITIZENS - MAYBE THE $120 MILLION TAX VOTE A SHAM?  WHY GIVE AWAY AN ADDITIONAL $60-100 MILLION?

WHY ARE THEY RUSHING IT?  BECAUSE THEY WILL HAVE NO RATIONALE FOR GETTING THIS BONUS GIFT AFTER THE NBA "UP" VOTE ON FRIDAY.

This is about what is best for Oklahoma or a few wealthy men.
