Why they might be annoying:

    They got their name after the Boeing planes that were made in Seattle. The Boeing plant eventually moved from Seattle.
    They blew a two games to zero lead against the Denver Nuggets, becoming the first #1 seed to be defeated by a #8 seed in the first round (1994).
    That caused nay-sayers to say that the Sonics couldn't win the games that counted.
    They hosted the first postponed game due to rain in NBA history, thanks to a leaky roof at their coliseum (1986).
    They traded Gary Payton the day before he was to play his 1,000th game with Seattle.

Why they might not be annoying:

    Their 1979 championship team was known for its balanced scoring attack.
    They had a great rivalry with the Washington Bullets in the 1970's.
    They advanced to the 1987 Western Conference Finals despite having a losing record in the regular season.
    They were among the best teams in the mid-1990's.
    They won two games in the NBA Finals against the Bulls, who had the best record ever (1996).
