It might not — yet — have the online fanaticism and cachet of baseball, but the NBA and its fans are starting to catch up in the world of team-devoted blogs. To this end, Deadspin salutes these modem-addled souls and proudly presents Blogdom's Best, given to the most outstanding blog for each NBA team. There are fewer than there are for baseball, but they're out there, if you look. If you would like to nominate a blog (yours, even) for selection, just let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Today: The Seattle Supersonics.
Things you should know about the Seattle SuperSonics: They are owned by Starbucks Coffee chairman Howard Schultz ... they are the only team whose home arena is accessible by monorail ... they are the only team to have had both Jack Sikma and Detlef Schrempf play for them ... they used to play in the Kingdome, leaving before this happened ... they then moved to Key Arena, which is about 50 yards from where this happened.
Also, their fans have created some great blogs — not surprising, considering Bill Gates and Microsoft are located just across the SR-520 freeway bridge. Let's take a gander, shall we?
3. Sha Lock Lock Sonic Boom. A Portland resident who loves the Sonics — call it the best SuperSonics blog outside of Puget Sound.
2. SuperSonics Soul. This was a tough one; a very strong blog which could easily have been No. 1, had their check cleared.*
1. Sonics Central. No frills, just great Sonics coverage on a consistent basis.
Note to Attack of the SuperSonics ... We've always been a fan of your blog, even back when it was called SuperSonics vs. the World. But you've been off since before Christmas — quit hanging out at the Cinerama get to work!
