Seattle --> OKC seems to have worked in the NBA. They're a top team with a crazy fan base.
That was still a move done under incredibly shady circumstances, considering that David Stern did everything in his power to ensure that the Sonics left Seattle, because he needed to scare the shit out of other NBA cities to make sure they ponied up for new arenas whenever his highness decrees that their 10-year-old ones are no longer up to snuff. Stern's almost as bad as Bud Selig when it comes to holding cities hostage for arenas, even though the "stadium as economic generator" concept has been thoroughly debunked by now.
