Well, where could it be besides Vancouver? With the Sonics moved to Oklahoma City, the regional market has increased potential. I don't think a franchise would work in Montreal. Maybe Ottawa? Vancouver still seems like the best bet to me.

If Vancouver had a REAL team theyd sell out every game.

Ottawa might get 10k for the first 10 games, and I use might loosely. No chance here, nor in MTL.

Forget it there is no way it happens you want to talk d-league franchises I would listen but no way NBA goes into another Canadian City. By the way BIG UPS to the Grimsby comment I loved it.

Alaska cause Sarah Palin wants new revenue streams for her home state. Carlos Boozer would not even play there and I think he is from Alaska.

Vancouver just had a long string of bad luck. It started by signing Big Country to a max deal. Country turned fat and the team had no room to sign FA. Thus, the team lost and fans stopped showing up.
