Would the Sonics leaving Seattle hurt Starbucks?

There is a developing story around Starbucks and the potential of the Sonics moving to Oklahoma. I’m not much of a basketball fan so I might get some of it wrong but it sounds like people are mad that the Sonics might move and are blaming Howard Schultz because he sold the team a few years ago. Did I miss something? Because I think I pretty much got all of it and it doesn’t make any sense at all.

I can appreciate that fans are upset but I’m really unsure how Howard or Starbucks fits into this. Can anyone clear this up for me?
