I'm sorry but Columbus doesn't have the amount of people to support an NBA team. I'm from Hawaii and I realize we will never have an NBA team. I think we have more of a chance than Columbus, Ohio...

BostonNut 08-09-2012 10:18 PM

I'm sorry but Columbus shouldn't even have a hockey team...

no way we'd have a better chance than columbus. The cost of teams coming here(and hawaii traveling to the mainland) would be too expensive in a 82 game season. But i sure wish we had one. Too bad lakers and GSW don't come down here anymore for preseason. And the reason for that was $$$$$.

GoJays 08-09-2012 10:21 PM

New York will get 8 more teams before Columbus gets one.

Josh611 08-09-2012 10:21 PM

They shouldn't have a College Football team either, they suck

I was saying from a market standpoint and amount of people in Hawaii vs Columbus. Not anything to do with cost. From a market and total people per area Hawaii oes have a better chance. But I will agree, still a negative number.

CALVINXLIONSX81 08-09-2012 10:37 PM

I think there would be about 100 Cities in line before Columbus

LOL, awesome stuff right there...

I can think of about 6 cities that should get a NBA team before Columbus.

Seattle
St. Louis
Kansas City
Pittsburg
Anaheim
Las Vegas

Clarka3 08-09-2012 10:55 PM

Cincinnati should get the ball team if they're going to put one more in ohio.

CP3toOKC 08-10-2012 05:27 AM

Tulsa might get a team before Columbus too

TheHeel 08-10-2012 06:14 AM

Charlotte would get a second team before Columbus.

i agree with these and add one more, louisville. As big as basketball is in kentucky seems like a no brainer.

i see this"NBA to Columbus" propaganda plasterred all over the net,and i have to say there is a flip side to all of this

Columbus is a college football town,period.

Columbus is not a big enough "metro" city to support college football and pro sports .

There is no getting around it.that is just the way it is.

let's look at the pro sports teams that are in Columbus now:

Columbus Crew Soccer:their attendance is dropping,and they are losing millions every year.

this soccer team doesn't even have a jersey sponsor,they are that lame.

Columbus Bluejackets Hockey:

let's face it.The Bluejackets suck.This hockey team is the poster child why no professional sports team can make money in Columbus.

they are millions in the red every year,and attendance has been skydiving regularly

the only reason this team even exists is because the mayor of Columbus and the city council are the team owners' puppets.

City Council bought the Arena with [B]speculated income[/B]from tax revenue from the new Casino without giving the voters in Columbus the opportunity to vote on the decision.just so the Bluejackets would have a favorable lease position.wtf???

history:
before the Arena was even built,voters in Columbus overwhelmingly voted against taxpayers paying for the construction of the Arena,which forced Nationwide to pay for the construction of the Arena.

The Arena itself should never had been built,because there is already Schottenstein Arena just a few miles away.

Columbus is not big enough to support 2 Arenas,period.

the propagandists say that sports teams being money and jobs to Columbus.

i say hogwash,because the money is already here.it just would not be pissed away on tickets to see a also ran sports team.
as for jobs,they are already here as well,even without the benefit of sport teams.

the best thing to do with the Nationwide Arena?Implode the POS.

sell the land to devellopers and let them build 5000 condos downtown,and the city can reap the tax benefits while local businesses make a killing off of the residents.

what you have here is a small group of people that think they know what is best for Columbus,and nobody else does.
plus the usual urban snobbage that thinks Columbus is the new Portland or Seattle,and wants to turn downtown Columbus into a Cedar Point for hipsters.

in closing,before even thinking about a pro sports team,this city govt.needs to get its' priorities straight.
the mass transit system in Columbus is a mess(it sucks),the streets need fixed(potholes in July),and the school system is outright FUBAR.

cincinnati is a much bigger market. they would draw fans from louisville, lexington, dayton & columbus. all are under two hours away...

Wait...What happened 8 straight years? Oh yeah, that's right Ohio State beat you 8 straight years. Just saying, without Denard you guys are horrible...yet again. See you 11/24/12 at the Horseshoe. Oh, and be prepared to start the buses early. :)!:D:flex::devil:

dherm360 08-11-2012 11:59 AM

natbornkiller 08-11-2012 12:02 PM

Anaheim do they need another team in ca
Las Vegas - will never happen for gambling reasons

Completely agree, I think St Louis should definately get a shot, KC and Pittsburgh, they are cities just like Columbus, dominated by one team. Columbus is and always will be all about the Buckeyes, I dont see that changing.

37Jetson 08-11-2012 12:32 PM

If they put the NBA in Columbus they can guarantee the team will make the playoffs once every twelve years.

brewcrew8 08-11-2012 12:40 PM

I'll trade the Milwaukee Bucks for the Columbus Blue Jackets
