Seattle SuperSonics Tickets for Sale

In the expansion draft Seattle picked up Tom Meschery, Walt Hazzard, Bob Weiss, and Rod Thorn. The fledgling club hired Al Bianchi to serve as its first head coach. Bianchi had logged a 10-year playing career as a reserve guard with the NBA's Syracuse Nationals and Philadelphia 76ers before retiring in 1966.

Seattle's first NBA season ended at 23-59, second worst in the league to San Diego's 15-67 mark. The Sonics lost their first game, 144-116, to San Francisco. They finally got a win in their third game, against fellow expansion team San Diego. After that first victory the Sonics lost 12 of their next 13 contests. In other words, it was a typical expansion season.

The Seattle SuperSonics have stayed quiet this past off-season, and definitely needed to improve after missing the playoffs. Rashard Lewis is emerging as a super star in the NBA, and this should definitely help the SuperSonics make the playoffs. Ray Allen has the purest shot from long range in the NBa and is looking to continue his hot shooting through out the 2006-2007 season.

Can the Seattle SuperSonics make it to the playoffs this season? Only one way to find out, come out to Key Arena and see the Seattle SuperSonics LIVE! Get your Seattle SuperSonics tickets from Onlineseats!

Seattle SuperSonics, professional basketball team and one of seven teams in the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Basketball Association (NBA). The SuperSonics (also known as the Sonics) play in Key Arena in Seattle, Washington, and wear jerseys of green, gold, orange, and white. The team's name refers to the jet-aircraft industry based in the Seattle area.

Seattle was awarded an NBA franchise on December 20, 1966, and the club began play in 1967-68 along with the San Diego Rockets (who soon moved to Houston). Seattle won a draft-order coin toss and selected 6-8 Al Tucker of Oklahoma Baptist at No. 6 in the 1967 NBA Draft. Tucker lasted only a season and a half with the Sonics. San Diego took Kentucky's Pat Riley with the seventh overall pick. (Riley played nine journeyman seasons in the NBA before becoming one of the most successful coaches of all time with the Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks.)
