    Most of which was not basketball related, more high profile people going to Vegas as a result of the basketball, they'd be there because it is a high profile event. Plus basketball does have a thug image.

    However Vegas is Vegas any day of the week, probably safer on a non-All Star event weekend, but still millions of people there.

    probably safer than any non-NBA event timeframe

    ergo : Vegas = bad choice

    they can have the All-Star game there and even Summer Camp
    but 41 home games ? :ha: no way

    Nashville wouldnt get any fan support for basketball, plus Memphis is way to close, and they dont even sell out every game. if a Franchise did come to nashville, it would pick up and move in 2 years.

    Other Cities that could get Teams include

    Oklahoma City
    San Jose
    Las Vegas
    Baltimore (i would be agaisnt it)
    St. Louis
    Twin Cities

    all those cities are closer then Nashville to getting a franchise...

    Louisville might be in the running, a huge basketball state, the ABA Colonels was successful there.
    There is talk of building a new arena for UL, could be combined.

    I don't follow the NBA anymore, but I'm pretty sure Indy already has a team.

    What i've always wondered was, how does St. Louis not have an NBA team?

    St Louis had a NBA team, the Hawks, which moved to Atlanta.
    They were in the ABA, but did not survive the merger, just like the KY Colonels.

    and ?

    it's not like the markets would compete for fanbase
    well, you could get some Memphians coming to Nashville
    but noone from Nashville in their right mind is going to Memphis

    and, believe it or not, it's quicker to drive to Atlanta than it is to drive to Memphis
