Would you feel guilty about swiping the Kings, Seattle?

Wednesday was a surreal day in Seattle sports.

Reports and rumors flew about Chris Hansen's group negotiating to buy the Sacramento Kings and bring the NBA back to Seattle. And sports fans are already in a frenzy over the white hot Seahawks' playoff run.

But the Kings story, in particular, makes me want to take Seattle's NBA temperature. Five years ago, the city was in precisely the same position Sacramento was in, eventually losing the beloved Sonics to Oklahoma City. Many fans felt betrayed. Now it could happen again, but Seattle would switch roles and be trying to take an NBA team from another city.

So would you feel a little guilty, Seattle? A lot? Or not?
