Top Ten Cities That Most Deserve an NBA Team
The Top Ten
Seattle does not deserve an NBA team and they will never get one. Seattle is for football. Portland is for basketball. People who live in Seattle can root for Portland in basketball, and people who live in Portland can root for Seattle in football.
Without a doubt. The way they had their team taken away from them was absolutely disgusting.
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.
They have a solid Steelers following so an NBA team could work
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
They haven't had one for over 60 years. Plus, they have the Cardinals, Rams, and the Blues.
Sure why not they have a decent enough fanbase
This city's already on this list.
It could work they have some passion for college basketball at least
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
Vancouver failed once, we should not let history repeat itself.
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
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.
Chiefs and Royals fans are some of the most passionate out there there’s no reason why we can’t support one
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.
Yeah they could use one. Send the Clippers to San Diego to go with the Padres
They could really use one right now.
Give us a team!
They're the biggest city without an nba team
The Canadiens and the Alouettes sell out almost every game.
This would be like putting an NFL team in Alabama.
Call them the Mustangs.
With UL being good, I think they could get one.
Sure why not they used to have a team. They could totally have one again
The Ravens have had some success, so a team here would do great.
The only way this could work is if the Memphis Grizzlies were to leave.
Austin we got enough teams in Texas Tennessee needs another
Some teams that would be a great fit for Nashville :
Timberwolves, Magic, and Kings
The Buckeyes get a great fan base, so an NBA team would get one as well.
Go buckeyes. Number one
It be cool if edmonton had an nba team
Yes that is right put a basketball stadium in Springfield
Not much to say, but basketball was invented in this city.
CRAP! I forgot to add this one! Oh well, it's on here now.
Bring back the ROYALS
This would screw up the league entirely there’s a reason the NFL hasn’t moved to London yet
I don't live in France but it would be great there
Seems to be a hotspot for new teams Raiders and Golden Knights are already there
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.
It be cool if calgary had an nba team as well
They barely care about the Jags so no
bring back the braves #BUFFALOVSEVERYBODY
