The Final Game

Last night Gary Payton showed up to the house that GP built, KeyArena, for what may end up being the final NBA basketball game played in Seattle, Washington. The fired up crowd willed the otherwise woeful Seattle Sonics onto a 99-95 comeback victory over the playoff bound Dallas Mavericks. The last two big buckets were scored by a clutch 19-year old fellow named Kevin Durant.

The Seattle Times, Sports Illustrated, and ESPN all had great pieces on this sad special night.
