Top Ten Cities That Deserve an NBA Team


The Top Ten

1 Seattle, Washington

They need their team back. Get the Sacramento Kings to become the Seattle Kings. - OhioStateBuckeyes

Seattle and Pittsburgh need one but I chose Seattle because at least Pittsburgh has an NHL team.

Seatle can have the Clippers. But change the name to the SuperSonics

2 Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

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. - SteelCity99

3 Kansas City, Missouri

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

4 Baltimore, Maryland

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

5 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. - OhioStateBuckeyes

More names: Cincinnati Blue Jays, Cincinnati Mummies
