“Yes, I probably would because it would be more local and you get that camaraderie.”

“Not really; I don’t follow baseball or football, and they have both of those teams in Kansas City.”

“I think I would. It’s really hard to get behind the teams that are out there right now, but if there was a team that was local I would be all about that. But then again, I’m not a Chiefs fan, so I can’t explain that.”

“I currently follow the NBA moderately, and my interest (level) probably would not change.”

I would rather have NHL. We have plenty of basketball around here now. It ain't going to happen though. No one is going to cough the money up.

KC couldn't even keep the Blades in business around here...a AAA hockey team. Hockey will never succeed here.

I would. I've enjoyed following the Thunder since they came to Oklahoma City.

I've had a few friends play in the NBA, and I followed them, but beyond that I've always found NCAA basketball more entertaining. As an alum of both UCLA and KU, I've been able to watch enough good basketall, I don't need an NBA team to follow.

We have the Jayhawks, who needs the NBA?

Ricky_Vaughn 5 years ago

They don't play against LeBron or Kobe or D-Wade or Tim Duncan or Steve Nash or Dirk or Gasol or...........

To heck with the NBA, roller derby is the sport of the future.

I would show up if Dianne Cannon will be there. Dianne Cannon.......

I already follow the NBA, but having a team again would be nice. I like the Thunder as well, closest thing to a hometown team and they've got some great, exciting young players.

Contrary to popular opinion, Allen Fieldhouse is not the center of the universe!

I'd take the NBA. OKC had a lot of fun with the Thunder this year until they lost out to the Lakers. They'll be good for years to come with the young players they've got. A well-run NBA franchise would be most welcome. Wouldn't it be a hoot if Michael Jordan moved the Charlotte Bobcats, coached by Larry Brown, to KC? Yowsa!

KC needs to "do" something about the teams we now have. I think if the fan base for baseball and football were stronger, then we'd be more of a "sports" town. Right now: the NBA would do better in OKC than in KC.

Heck yeah. I grew up an NBA fan (in Boston), and always will be. College ball is second.

Go Celtics! 2010 NBA Champs

autie (anonymous) says… ...or yourself in the club later ===== Now now, that was an NFL player who did that. Let's give credit where credit is due...

If Kansas City had an NBA team, it's highly likely they would be in the same class as the Royals and the Chiefs: Bottom Feeders. I probably wouldn't walk across the street to see them if admission was free.

Boo hoo!

Buy a Yankees hat and a Lakers jersey and STFU.

I do follow the NBA, We go to Three OKC Thunder games a year. People here don't like the NBA because it takes KU players away.

I knew Sikhs let their hair grow out... but is Pompie doing it the right way?

I love how they cropped the photo so we can imagine it going down, like... to his KNEES.

whats_going_on 5 years ago

maybe, but only if they were as successful as the other two...

mr_right_wing 5 years ago

The Royals are struggling... The Chiefs are now struggling too...

The NBA is watching and shaking their heads as they say "NO WAY!!"

Fine by me...we'll just stick to KUBB!!
