Russell Wilson: I’ve partnered with Sonics Arena Group to help bring NBA, NHL to Seattle

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at New England Patriots David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

I can’t express in words how perfect he is.

Here’s a statement from Arena Group leader Chris Hansen:

“We couldn’t be more thrilled that Russell is joining our partnership and continued efforts to bring the NBA and NHL back to Seattle,” said Chris Hansen, who has led the charge to build an arena in SoDo, in the statement. “As you are all aware, we have always kept our focus on doing this for the right reasons – Our love for our City, our love of basketball, and our belief that pro-sports has the ability to positively influence our youth and bring communities together in a way very few things in this world can. It is with this shared view that we welcome Russell, a young, smart and passionate entrepreneur, as our business partner. We know that his enthusiasm, positivity, and ‘never give up’ attitude will make a huge difference in our effort.”
