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.

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.

2 Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

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

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.

Sure why not they have a decent enough fanbase

This city's already on this list.

4 Cincinnati, Ohio

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

Cincinnati Harambes

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

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

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.

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.

7 San Diego, California

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!

8 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.

9 Louisville, Kentucky

This would be like putting an NFL team in Alabama.

Call them the Mustangs.

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

10 Baltimore, Maryland

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 Contenders

11 Nashville, Tennessee

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

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

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

19 Virginia Beach, Virginia
20 Ottawa, Ontario
21 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.

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.

22 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

23 Jacksonville, Florida

They barely care about the Jags so no

24 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

25 Omaha, Nebraska
