Top 10 Cities That Need NBA Teams

Now that we have established that the Kings belong in Sacramento, it's time to address the cities that don't have an NBA team, and desperately need one. This list includes both places that had former NBA or ABA teams that lost franchises and deserve another chance at supporting a team, and brand new destinations that could clearly support a professional basketball team.

Sonics fans were heartbroken when their team left for Oklahoma City in 2008. If the NBA were to expand, I would hope that this would be the first city to regain a franchise. The same city that brought us Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana, and Pearl Jam also brought us Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp, which is still to this day, one of the most exciting combinations of stars to ever grace an NBA court. A return of the green and gold to the "Emerald City" would be a great investment for the league.
