This is what happens when somebody does something so dishonest that they can not even admit it to themselves. Clay Bennett doesn’t even know he’s lying.
On April 17, 2007, Sonics co-owner Tom Ward wrote co-owner Aubrey McClendon and Bennett: “Is there any way to move here for next season or are we doomed to have another lame duck season in Seattle?”
Bennett replied: “I am a man possessed! Will do everything we can. Thanks for hanging with me boys, the game is getting started!”
Ward replied: “That’s the spirit!! I am willing to help any way I can to watch ball here next year.”
On Friday, Bennett denied claims he acted in bad faith.
