This makes perfect sense, the NBA should reinstall a Vancouver team.
True but i think it's simply because this is the 4th largest city in the NBA and one of the more multi cultured ones as well. Many of the different cultures in this city love basketball and soccer as their main sports. The team has a solid fanbase in the city it plays in, but not so much in the rest of the country really. Nor should they be expected to.
