Fan given the boot?

Posted by Jayda Evans

So, Sonics chairman Clay Bennett sat in a suite with GM Sam Presti and NBA legend Bill Russell tonight. When a fan spotted the Oklahoma-based owner, he voiced his passionate opinions, allegedly calling Bennett a "thief" and begging for the new owner to sell the team. Well, the fan was swiftly kicked out, according to an e-mail documentation. Bennett supposedly delivered a message to the fan as he and his girlfriend were escorted out of the building that "more respect" needed to be shown. The fan's response? That a $300 investment toward some banner that will fly around New Orleans at the All-Star game with the message "STOP CLAY -- SONICS MUST STAY" was the best drop of cash he's ever made.

The Sonics confirmed that Bennett was in attendance but did not comment about the fan's removal.
