Sonics Savior?    

First, I'd like to apologize for failing to acknowledge that we finally signed Chris Wilcox to a very reasonable 3-year, $19.5 million deal, with incentives that could push that up to $24 mil. I was starting to worry this might not happen, and with all the distractions about the sale of the team and everything, this is a very welcome move. Anyway, I'm very excited about Wilcox, though apparently his defense is still a question mark. We'll see, but I think this is huge.

Secondly, I would like to thank Supersonics Soul for pointing me to this priceless Wilcox quote:

“There is always going to be somebody who is hating on you. They hated on Jesus, so I can’t say they won’t hate on me.”

Indeed they did, Chris. And I hope to hear more about it soon. Glad you'll be sticking around.


  • I saw this and had two reactions:

    1) Glad the Sonics kept him, b/c he's going to go bananas now that he's got a chance to play.
    2) Glad he played well enough, post-trade, to justify that much money. Although, these are the people who signed these two guys.

    Anyway, well done by Sonics.
