Opposition to OKC vote?

Posted by Jayda Evans

It appears there's some opposition to the March 4 vote to approve the $121 million renovation of the Ford Center, a plan Sonics owner Clay Bennett wants passed as part of his deal to relocate the team to his home state. Received the following press release this morning.

We'll have more as the situation develops, but this is the first effort I've seen against Bennett in Oklahoma City. Everyone who has visited the place and all that I've read from bloggers there is that folks are willing to do anything for a NBA team. It will be interesting if that's not true.

For Release 9am CST
