Top Ten Cities That Deserve an NBA Team


The Top Ten

1 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

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

3 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

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

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