Matter of Opinion

Push the Hot Button

The Seattle SuperSonics' owner hinted at moving the team to Las Vegas, because he couldn't get a taxpayer-subsidized arena in the Puget Sound area.

NBA Commissioner David Stern said not a chance, not as long as Vegas allows betting on NBA games. Imagine that. Betting on sports. That would be wrong.

Anyway, do you care at this point whether the team stays in Washington state? Do you want taxpayer money going to the team?
