Sonics / NBA

I guess in Seattle I’m best known for covering the NBA’s SuperSonics. It figures. The team I covered is the team people usually think about when they think about the Sonics, which are no longer located in Seattle. It was extraordinarily talented and exciting team. Although, it didn’t win any titles, it did play in the 1996 NBA Finals. The Sonics had the extreme misfortune of playing against a Chicago Bulls team that was historically good.

This is a remembrance I wrote for The Seattle Times about my time with the Sonics:
