When Sam Presti was hired by the Seattle Supersonics on June 7, 2007, by the new Oklahoma-based ownership of the team, his first action made an immediate mark. In a draft night trade with the Boston Celtics, Presti shipped Ray Allen, the face of the franchise, out of town. In return, he got Wally Szerbiak, Delonte West, and a draft pick that would be used to take Jeff Green. Only Green remained with the franchise beyond the next draft. This was not equal value for a future hall of famer that helped the Celtics win a championship that very next season.
It may have been the best deal Presti has ever engineered.
Over the past few years, various mass dining collectives have been taking the places of aged mall food courts, usually in Oklahoma City’s semi-fashionable downtown districts. However, in the particularly white-bread suburbs of Edmond, a group of upscale eateries has seemed to develop near the lonely train tracks, to great effect.
It’s called the Edmond Railyard, 23 W. 1st St., and inside are many places I deftly dream of someday trying, but, for this review, I focused primarily on Blue J’s Rockin’ Grill, a hamburger joint modeled after a moderately destitute Hard Rock Café, with rock, rap and country posters covering the walls, as well as a few guitars here and there; look upwards though and you’ll notice a drum kit painstakingly transformed into a lighting rig for the place, which, really, is kind of ingenious.
