Sonic progression

There’s nothing in the essential point of the Steve Kelley column in the Seattle Times today that a lot of people haven’t been saying locally for months. Or sometimes in other media. But the Times has tended to be more diplomatic – coming off, maybe, as trusting.

Today, though: Kelley writes about the choice of a new head coach for the Seattle Sonics, and doesn’t like it. In addition to other considerations, the selected coach has no real ties to Seattle, while the chief alternative had abundant local ties. Ordinarily not a big deal, this becomes a big consideration when the team’s future – either in the Seattle area on one hand or in, say, Oklahoma City or Las Vegas on the other – is (to be generous) on the fence.

Kelley’s lead paragraph: “We’ve been duped.”
