That would've been awesome if they had that when I lived there, but there is no way in hell they will ever have a sports franchise. At least not until teams can teleport.

San Diego would be a good place for a team to relocate. Memphis Grizzlies should move there, not like their fans would care anyway.

Just kidding, they have no fans.

KC would be nice for me but I am not sure if they could fully support a team. Seams like Vegas and Seattle could use a team.

Something tells me Hawwii would have no problem signin free agents and keeping draft picks... lol.

I personally would like to see the league expand internationally. Certainly a team in Mexico would be fitting considering the number of Spanish players in the league

I'd also like to see a European team, though it would be hard to work out the schedule. Perhaps the league could open a sister league in Europe/Asia (though I'm not sure the talent pool is be enough to warrant that).

I'd like to see a team back in Vancouver (being Canadian- I think the only reason that team didn't do well was because they never put a quality product on the floor... and the ****** uniforms didn't help) and Seattle. And I'm sure Pittsburg fans would like a team (though I'm not sure if they have a market).

I'd like to see the Clippers move to Compton though for sure... and change their name!

I mean really just stop now and did someway say because of the players from SPAIN that MEXICO should get a team?


Also who's going to go watch a team in Hawaii or Vegas when their below .500 and have no star power?

St. Croix or anywhere in the virgin islands

I'd like to see the NBA go international, with Stern running the show, it might happen within the next 2 decades.

Seattle obviously, and there have been a lot of discussions about Las Vegas, which I think would be good for the league. Also, there are loads of professional sports teams in Missouri, so St. Louis or Kansas City should get a team. Considering major college basketball states, Kentucky or Kansas could get a team. Looking at cities like Louisville, Lexington or Wichita, it's possible they could be big enough markets for a professional team.

Also, how about Austin, TX? It's a great college city and has a number of minor league teams already in place. Other Texas teams have been incredibly successful and there's no reason to think Austin wouldn't be as well.

I like to see a team in Pittsburgh or Kentucky. Both have strong college basketball crowds.

03-17-2010, 10:11 AM
Las Vegas for sure. Or Flint Michigan!

03-17-2010, 10:14 AM
Pittsburgh, their city always supports its teams and it would give me a new team to hate.

03-17-2010, 10:32 AM
Vancouver again

the cincinatti/kentucky area. i visit there(cincy) from philly once a year to see family and it is all basketball all the time. they already have a developed waterfront of sports complex's, and their fan base would far surpass those of the likes of memphis, new jersey, charlotte, atlanta, minnesota, and yes probably even my philadelphia 76ers.

03-17-2010, 12:14 PM
Seattle or Las Vegas

03-17-2010, 12:21 PM
Nashville, TN

03-17-2010, 12:35 PM
China, India, Greece, Italy, France, Germany, Spain, England, Sweden, Switzerland. One NBA team for every major European country and India and China. One team for Australia as well.

I don't remember them supporting the Penguins much prior to them drafting Crosby

03-17-2010, 01:08 PM
St Louis :pray: - At least I won't be so bored living here
Las Vegas, Nevada - live at the MDM Grand :D

Seattle should definitely get a team back. I think they should get the Sonics' history back as well.

Manchester, England should absolutely get a team. Although it isn't as big a name as London, it is a city which is very quickly rising and becoming the media capital of the UK. We also have the MEN Arena, which is one of the most succesful in the world right now.

Kansas City, MO


We have a loyal fanbase despite how *****y the teams are except for the Chiefs toward the end of the season. Royals still get a strong audience despite being medicore to *****y.

I heard we were front runners for the Thunder, but decided to go with a hockey team instead :facepalm:

Somewhere in South Dakota.

As a South Dakota resident, many people around here go to Minnesota and to neighboring states to see a sports team play.

I'm sure we can get many fans packed into a stadium/arena.

Give us a chance:D
