Community Practice Oct. 6
Your first chance to see the 2007-08 Sonics is coming up on Saturday, Oct. 6, when the annual community practice will take place at Seattle Pacific University's Royal Brougham Pavilion from 6-8 p.m.
Dating back to when I was a fan in the crowd, the community practices have always had a special place in my heart. I remember attending what was then known as the Green and Gold Game way back in 1994 at SPU.
This one should be special. I know everyone is eager to see how the new era of Sonics basketball takes shape with a new coach, two top-five picks and three key veteran additions from trades.
There's also the return to action of Robert Swift (pictured at right in last year's community practice at Hazen High School) after missing the 2006-07 regular season with a torn ACL. This is a great opportunity to see how the team is progressing early during training camp.
The best part is the price: Free.
Stay tuned to SUPERSONICS.COM for more information as we get closer to next Saturday.
