Clippers to Anaheim?

Why don't they move them to a state that does not have a basketball team? Like New Mexico or Montana or something because by staying in LA, or southern cali in general, they'll always be in the shadow of the Lakers.

Because they need a good market city. No offense to anyone who lives there, but Montana is just a bunch of dirt and cement. Las Vegas would be good, but every game would be rigged like boxing matches because of the mob :man10:

I know where you're coming from, but LA isn't the best place to market in terms of who has taken over the economic finances through LA( in reference to LA). Heck, why not just move them to England in 2010 when David Stern puts NBA teams in Europe. :man1:

I think the NBA is as big as it should be now. I don't want way too many teams 30 (including Bobcats) is fine.

But you've at least heard David Stern speak about expansion in Europe right? It was also written in an ESPN article that he would put teams in London, Paris, Madrid, Milan, and in Belgium.

but if it expanded to Europe, that would probably be a seperate league, like Euro NBA or something

Seriously...i mean there's teams in our league already who can't get a sold out game on any night during the season, and here he goes wanted to expand to Europe, and have the teams from American fly to London for one game, and then back to say the west coast for another? And think of how playoffs would work if the championship game was between the Americas against Europe...Even then if it was it's own separate league...no guy in his right mind would want to come to the NBA and get selected by a European team who's salary cap is gonna vary with different currencies...and who's team will probably pay much less then the the original 30 teams are willing to pay... :bang:


If it is it's own separate league, i wouldnt mind so much...
