Does the NBA care? Naaaaah...

Well the votes are in from the 30 NBA owners in regards to the Sonics potentially moving to Oklahoma City, and it seems 28 owners have no balls and will bow down to David Stern every chance they get. The two who voted for sanity? Mark Cuban of the Dallas Mavericks and Paul Allen of the Portland Trailblazers. You know what? If you had to pick two owners who ran model franchises, who put winning games and putting a great team on the floor ahead of profits (and funnily enough, the profits come when they put together successful, entertaining squads), the two you'd pick would be Cuban and Allen. Cuban also gets extra points for telling Stern to go f--k himself when he thinks he's not looking out for the interests of the NBA owners.

Here's some links outlining toady's Sonic-related developments...
