Say Hello To The Seattle ThunderSonics

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

The Sonics' absence from Seattle is still being talked about, at least by a couple of NBA fans.

J.E. Skeets and Tas Melas of The Basketball Jones played a joke on Oklahoma City citizens by telling them NBA commissioner David Stern decided to have the Oklahoma City Thunder move back to Seattle as part of the NBA lockout negotiations.

The small sample size of citizens seemed hardly distraught by the news, with one lady even saying, "I didn't expect them to stay for that long anyways."

I'm doubtful Seattle citizens would be as gullible as these Oklahoma City citizens if they were told a team was coming to Seattle. However, who am I to judge? Maybe Skeets and Melas will be on the streets of Seattle soon playing a joke on Seattlites.

See the video after the jump.

How do you feel about this video/joke? Would you have been fooled?
