    impressive

    He’s good and missing out on a great opportunity. But I’m from Seattle and understand. OKC is a great place, but………………not Seattle.

    So happy to hear Kevin on the Seahawks preseason game. I met Kevin and his family when he first came to Seattle, and now he is a fixture in Seattle and role model for other broadcasters with his wit and integrity!

    Glad KC decided to stay in the Pacific Northwest. He has integrity,smart,thoughtful, and loyal.

    As a life long Seattle resident I am so happy that KC has decided to stay here. Being an Indiana boy, I could easily see him moving to another basketball city, if not OKC. Does sound funny to hear his enthusiasm when calling soccer or baseball. His voice fits basketball perfectly.

    Here’s hoping Seattle gets another NBA team and KC can fulfill his full potential.
