I belatedly got around to skimming though USA Today’s NBA preview section, which published on Tuesday.
It has a story on the Sonics’ move to Oklahoma City, which includes a comparison chart of the two cities.
Under “National/professional titles” for OKC it lists the seven Oklahoma college football titles (even though the university is in Norman, 23 miles away.) However, for Seattle, it lists the Sonics 1979 NBA title and even the Storm’s 2004 WNBA title, but nothing about those 1991 Huskies … or — more understandably — the 1960 Huskies.
Under “Famous athletes” the OKC chart lists Jim Thorpe and Barry Sanders and Mickey Mantle, while the Seattle list once again is Husky-free: Steve Largent, Ken Griffey Jr. and Lenny Wilkins.
