“I Think Adam Knows That We Are Absolutely Ready” – Rapper Macklemore Confident About Seattle Having Its Own NBA Team Macklemore joined the panel of NBA Today to talk about Seattle having its own NBA team in the coming years, and the rapper is confident about it happening. Before moving to Oklahoma City in 2008, Seattle had its own club, the Seattle Sonics, which debuted in 1967 and competed in the Western Conference. “I think the world is ready. I think the rest of the league is ready. The players want it. We have a storied city in terms of basketball. It’s a shame we don’t have a professional team, and Adam’s on board,” said Macklemore. Do you think Seattle should have an NBA team? Why or why not?
