Recently I watched Sonicsgate, a documentary about the events that led up to the Seattle Super Sonics moving to Oklahoma City. It was a very gut-wrenching experience watching the team, which started my interest in sports, leave town. But I thought the film was well done and would recommend it to any basketball fan, or even any team sports fan. The way in which a team can go from being a city favorite to leaving a city which seemed so fast is heartbreaking, but it happened to the Sonics. I would never wish it on anyone else.
