Before leaving for Oklahoma City in 2008, the Seattle SuperSonics suffered through the most dismal season in its 40-year history, winning just 20 games and finishing last in the Western Conference.

That year, they drew more fans, on average, than the Kings have drawn to Sleep Train Arena this year.

The Kings currently attract about 13,100 fans to each game, the worst attendance record in the league.

During their last five years in the NBA, the Sonics drew, on average, about 15,500 fans to each game. During the last five seasons, the Kings have drawn an average of 13,500 fans at each game.
