The Seattle City Council is expected to finalize a Seattle Arena deal on Monday, and on Sunday night, fans were celebrating in advance of that vote.
Former Sonics All-Star Shawn Kemp hosted hundreds of fans at Rally with the Reign Man at his restaurant, Oskar's Kitchen, in Lower Queen Anne.
Kemp was handing out hugs, photo ops and a positive vibe.
I think it's gonna pass and I think it's got a little way to go, he said.
The council discussion and vote is expected Monday afternoon. It will then go to the county council to approve the changes - and that could happen in the first or second week in October
