Oklahoman NBA fans?-Not Rover Related

The NBA is supposed to decide today about the relocation of the Seattle Sonics to Oklahoma City. The locals here who oppose the relocation have been trying to make Clay Bennett out as the bad guy since Day One.
Even the uber-geeky Seattle mayor and media starved WA governor have tried to horn in on the action to get them to stay.
Just curious what the feeling is in Oklahoma. Do Oklahomans really want an NBA team, (I heard OK City voters approved a measure to renovate / build a new stadium?), or is it just sort of a non-event?

I have never been over to actually see a game but I know the news coverage and interest has been full on for getting a team. Mostly because our state kinda sucks when it comes to getting anything productive for our own economy and it would be good for the OKC area. A LOT of money has been placed into the bricktown part of downtown OKC which has finally brought some concerts and college conference championship games, etc. Sure beats going to Dallas or KC to do something and this state has to do something to get some money going. We have some of the cheapest housing and cost of living, but honestly it is because no one else in the U.S. wants to come here to live. I wish the team would would come to Tulsa, I would definately buy tickets.
