SonicsRising Week In Review: No News Doesn't Mean Bad News

We didn't have the excitement this week as we did last week, but we did have a lot of quality pieces get published and if you happened to miss them, here is your chance to go back and reread them.


We didn't get anything fun or exciting to come from incoming NBA commissioner, Adam Silver. The next time that I write this column though the Seattle Seahawks could be Super Bowl Champions and we know for sure that David Stern will be retired and a commissioner open to expansion and getting a team back to Seattle will be in that nice corner office at 645 Fifth Avenue in New York City.

Here is what you potentially might have missed this week and remember to vote in our Greatest of All-Time Series. Your votes do go toward seeding the teams!

Given our current lack of an NBA team, it got me thinking, who can we root for? Well, we can root for our own team.

My Game of the Week: It has to be the early Wednesday night game on ESPN when the Oklahoma City Thunder travel down to Miami to take on LeBron James and the Heat. Kevin Durant has been on a tear lately, can LeBron and Chris Bosh slow him down at all?

Super Bowl Prediction: I honestly have no idea who is going to win the game. I'm not thrilled with the game potentially being played in the snow and freezing rain. I'd rather the players decide the outcome and not the weather. The only advantage the Seahawks have is their defense. When it comes to offense, quarterbacks, coaching, kick and punt returner it all goes to the Broncos.

In saying that, because of the weather and Peyton Manning's choking ability, Seahawks win 13-6 in one of the worst played Super Bowls in history.
