Top Ten Cities That Most Deserve an NBA Team
The Top Ten
Duh. Supersonics? Oh yes, Seattle Supersonics. Anybody heard of them? - SEEyalater
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!
With the Steelers, Penguins, and the Pirates being good, this city could use an NBA team. - OhioStateBuckeyes
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
They haven't had one for over 60 years. Plus, they have the Cardinals, Rams, and the Blues. - OhioStateBuckeyes
This city's already on this list. - creed99
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. - OhioStateBuckeyes
More names: Cincinnati Blue Jays, Cincinnati Mummies
Possible Names: Cinncinnati Royals, Cinncinnati Crushers
That would be cool if they had another canada team in nba if raptors missed the playoffs - trains45
I need a Canadian nba team to support if the Toronto raptors get eliminated in the playoffs
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. - OhioStateBuckeyes
Kansas city is a city that backs up their team in any way minor league or major.
They're the biggest city without an nba team
The Canadiens and the Alouettes sell out almost every game.
They could really use one right now. - OhioStateBuckeyes

It be cool if calgary had an nba team as well - trains45
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. - creed99
