Mayor Nickels weighs in on the NBA BOG meeting

Posted by Percy Allen

Mayor Greg Nickels echoed sentiments made by the Governor Christine Gregoire, state and local leaders who sent a letter to NBA Commissioner David Stern and urged him to postpone action on the Sonics' relocation bid until after the team's legal matters are resolved.

You can read the Mayor's press release on his website.

Nickels was noticeably did not sign the Gregoire letter and chose to issue a seperate statement, which indicates that this issue has turned into a political quagmire. It's no secret that the Mayor is angry with the Governor because he believe state leaders acted slowly and allowed a $150 million KeyArena offer from a group that included Steve Ballmer to expire. The city committed $75 million and asked the state to authorize funds for an additional $75 million.
