I just read something that said the sonics were definetely moving to oklahoma city (nothing obvious, i know). but what i thought was interesting was the quote was from Aubrey McClendon, one of the new owners. Is this the same McClendon who the McClendon tower is named after? am i wrong or was he also a substantial donor to Swift Boat veterans for Truth? Does anyone remember anything like this? When did he buy the team (or his share of the team)?

Also, I don't know if this belongs here or on off-topic, so please move it if necessary.

He and his wife are both Duke grads, and have given at least $16 million to Duke. And yes, he was a big supporter of the so-called Swift Boat Veterans for Truth.
