Top Ten Cities That Most Deserve an NBA Team

The Top Ten

1 Seattle, Washington Seattle is a seaport city on the west coast of the United States. It is the seat of King County, Washington.

Duh. Supersonics? Oh yes, Seattle Supersonics. Anybody heard of them?

Seahawks basketball we wished should've established in 1946. 30 years earlier than NFL. Seattle should be originally a basketball town instead of football, I mean basketball capital of the world.

12,000 tickets sold out IN THE FIRST HOUR for a preaseason game. Enough said.

They should be called the Seahawks, but change our NFL team name to Salem Sonics or Boise Gems or whatever, but it's gotta be in Boise an/or Salem instead of Seattle. Seahawks basketball should've been invented since pro basketball have established, instead of short lived Miami Seahawks in the 1946 and 47 NFL seasons. Seattle and Portland needs BASEBALL and NBA instead of NFL, NFL or SOCCER, they don't need all of them. Tacoma should have the NHL team to be called Tacoma Totems, Spokane should have SOCCER, and Boise and Salem should have the NFL. Got it? Great!

2 Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

With the Steelers, Penguins, and the Pirates being good, this city could use an NBA team.

Pittsburgh can be called the Ironmen because of the steel industry's impact in the area. Maybe the Clippers or the Kings could move here.

The City of Pittsburgh really needs an NHL Hockey Team because they do an outstanding job of supporting their other 3 of the 4 main Major Pro-Sports Teams (Pittsburgh Steelers, Pittsburgh Pirates, and Pittsburgh Penguins), and all 3 teams are average and above quality teams. The Steelers (in my opinion) is Pittsburgh’s BEST Pro-Sports Team, with the Penguins coming in at #2, and then the Pirates at #3. NBA is the only sport out of the 4 main major Pro-Sports (NFL, MLB, NBA, and NHL) that Pittsburgh is missing. Like the other Pittsburgh Pro-Sports Teams, this would be a GREAT rival to the Philadelphia 76ers. Here are some possible team names for a Proposed Pittsburgh NBA Basketball Expansion Team:

1) Pittsburgh Roadrunners
2) Pittsburgh Zebras
3) Pittsburgh Constructionmen
4) Pittsburgh Bridgemen

3 St. Louis, Missouri St. Louis is an independent city and inland port in the U.S. state of Missouri. It is situated along the western bank of the Mississippi River, which marks Missouri's border with Illinois.

They haven't had one for over 60 years. Plus, they have the Cardinals, Rams, and the Blues.

This city's already on this list.

4 Cincinnati, Ohio

I'm not saying this because I live here. I'm saying this because of two great college basketball teams make this city basketball hungry.

More names: Cincinnati Blue Jays, Cincinnati Mummies

Cincinnati Harambes

Possible Names: Cinncinnati Royals, Cinncinnati Crushers

5 Vancouver, British Columbia Vancouver is a coastal seaport city in western Canada, located in the Lower Mainland region of British Columbia.

That would be cool if they had another canada team in nba if raptors missed the playoffs

I need a Canadian nba team to support if the Toronto raptors get eliminated in the playoffs

6 Kansas City, Missouri

They had a NBA team, but they relocated to Sacramento and did worse than expected there. I have to admit, this city really deserves a NBA team, especially the proud sports fans that lives here. I hope it happens eventually.

Royals fans are so passionate that they would be a great fit for a team like the Timberwolves

The Royals are a great MLB team, so an NBA team would fit in great here.

Kansas city is a city that backs up their team in any way minor league or major.

7 Montreal, Quebec Montreal is the most populous municipality in the Canadian province of Quebec and the second-most populous municipality in Canada. Originally called Ville-Marie, it is named after Mount Royal, the triple-peaked hill in the heart of the city. The city is centred on the Island of Montreal, which took ...read more.

They're the biggest city without an nba team

The Canadiens and the Alouettes sell out almost every game.

8 San Diego, California

They could really use one right now.

Give us a team!

9 Louisville, Kentucky

Call them the Mustangs.

With UL being good, I think they could get one.

10 Baltimore, Maryland

The Ravens have had some success, so a team here would do great.

The Contenders

11 Nashville, Tennessee

Austin we got enough teams in Texas Tennessee needs another

Some teams that would be a great fit for Nashville :
Timberwolves, Magic, and Kings

12 Columbus, Ohio

The Buckeyes get a great fan base, so an NBA team would get one as well.

Go buckeyes. Number one

13 Edmonton, Alberta

It be cool if edmonton had an nba team

14 Springfield, Massachusetts

Yes that is right put a basketball stadium in Springfield

Not much to say, but basketball was invented in this city.

15 Tampa Bay, Florida

CRAP! I forgot to add this one! Oh well, it's on here now.

16 Winnipeg, Manitoba
17 Rochester, New York

Bring back the ROYALS

18 Paris, France

I don't live in France but it would be great there

19 Virginia Beach, Virginia
20 Ottawa, Ontario
21 Calgary, Alberta Calgary is a city in the Canadian province of Alberta. It is situated at the confluence of the Bow River and the Elbow River in the south of the province, in an area of foothills and prairie, about 80 km east of the front ranges of the Canadian Rockies.

It be cool if calgary had an nba team as well

22 Las Vegas, Nevada Las Vegas, officially the City of Las Vegas and often known simply as Vegas, is the 28th-most populated city in the United States, the most populated city in the state of Nevada, and the county seat of Clark County.

The Kings should move to Las Vegas because it now has a WNBA team but not an NBA team. It also has an NFL and an NHL team

No one wants to put a professional sports team in this city.

23 Buffalo, New York Buffalo is the second largest city in the U.S. state of New York and the largest city in Western New York.

bring back the braves #BUFFALOVSEVERYBODY

24 Omaha, Nebraska
25 London, England London is the capital and most populous city of England and the United Kingdom. Standing on the River Thames in the south eastern part of the island of Great Britain, London has been a major settlement for two millennia.
