The SuperSonics won the NBA Championship in 1979, and are one of three teams out of the six major-league men's professional sports franchises that have existed in Seattle to have won a championship.
Sam Schulman owned the team from its 1967 inception until 1983. It was also owned by Barry Ackerley, and the Basketball Club of Seattle, headed by Starbucks chairman Howard Schultz. On October 31, 2006, the SuperSonics were purchased by Oklahoma City businessman Clay Bennett. The sale was finalized and the new ownership group took control. After failing to find public funding to construct a new arena in the Seattle area, the SuperSonics moved to Oklahoma City before the 2008–09 season, following a $45 million settlement with the city of Seattle to pay off the team's existing lease at KeyArena in advance of its 2010 expiration.
