It was hard losing mr sonic nate mcmillian left for portland, but still things look up for the sonics. We still have our core players of Ray Allen, Rashard Lewis, Luke Ridnour, and Nick Collison. So we should be just as good this year. The stadium, I believe needs to be updated, but it probably will be impossible to do without help from the city etc. But the owners should have known this before they bought the team.
