Were I lucky enough to be in Portland, I’d look forward to seeing former Longhorns LaMarcus Aldridge and Kevin Durant face each other on Wednesday night (well, with more relish than witnessing Brandon Roy knock off the Knicks, anyway).  Then again, since I’m not a disenfranchised Sonics fan, I’ve got a slightly different perspective.  From the Oklahoman‘s Darnell Mayberry and Mike Baldwin :

When the Thunder plays at Portland next week, some Seattle fans, miffed that their NBA team moved to Oklahoma City, plan to attend the Feb. 11 game at the Rose Garden.

The vocal Save Our Sonics group said it has secured blocks of tickets so members “can boo both teams at a discounted price. The group has rented shuttle buses for the 170-mile trip. Save Our Sonics leaders are planning an even bigger trip when the Thunder returns to Portland on April 13.
