BKN--FAREWELL TO THE KEY
SEATTLE — There could be no more appropriate send off for KeyArena than to see the NBA once again played under its roof. The former home of the Seattle SuperSonics will hold its final event on Friday night when the Golden State Warriors meet the Sacramento Kings in a preseason NBA game. Afterward, the building will be shuttered, remodeled and if all goes to schedule, reopened as the gleaming home to a new NHL franchise in two years. And possibly, someday, the NBA once again.
