I have been saying it for some time but trust Chris Daniels. Beyond that though, Wally Walker has been tireless in his efforts on our behalf. He has never allowed the criticism to deter him. He has never looked to put redeeming his own reputation about the mission of bringing the Sonics back. Without him we would not have the Sonics in Seattle.
Now it can be told: Wally Walker has always felt bad about the Sonics departure, and has been instrumental in trying to bring franchise back
Wally voted against the Sonics franchise sale to Clay Bennett's group.

A Good Meeting
Before we head to the airport to catch our flights home I just wanted to let you all know our presentation this morning went very well and we leave NYC with a feeling of great optimism. Being able to demonstrate the breadth and depth of support from all of you was a critical part of our presentation. You should all be very proud of what you have helped make possible. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.
I also want to thank Mayor Mike McGinn and King County Executive Dow Constantine for helping us make our case. Their presence here today was a clear demonstration of the great political support for bringing our Sonics home. #GoSonics
