Former Seattle Prep and UW star Spencer Hawes arrived in Oklahoma City last night for the Sacramento Kings' game against the Thunder dressed to avenge the Sonics' defection from Seattle.
Per the Sacramento Bee: "As the Kings' second-year center strolled through Ford Center on Sunday, his message was clear from the yellow suit and green dress shirt to the Space Needle tie. 'I was a big Sonics fan growing up, born and raised in Seattle,' Hawes said. 'I think it's a travesty that they were taken away after 40 years, and this is my way of showing it.' And his public display of his disdain for the franchise's relocation to Oklahoma City didn't begin when he walked into Ford Center. Hawes wore a SuperSonics jersey on the team flight.
Unfortunately for Hawes, the Kings lost a tight one to the former Sonics, who have played .500 ball since the 1st of the year after getting off to an awful start.
