No, LA does not need a 3rd NBA team. Give the Kings to Seattle if they have to move anywhere.

Just because Los Angeles is Los Angeles doesn't mean they need to be the default for everything. The Clippers hardly get any support and there's many other cities in the US that should get an NBA team (Seattle being one of them), so LA should be overlooked and forgotten about if the Kings decide to leave Sacramento.

yeah I don't get why or how the Clippers remain profitable every year, they make a profit every year despite being the biggest doormat in Professional Sports, don't people in L.A. have better things to do than go see the Clippers play?

To continue the tradition of an LA having at least 1 bad basketball team, we should get the team with the worst record so Clipper and Laker fans have someone to beat up on =P

At least 3 posts say move the team to Seattle, but it is unlikely to happen. There is no stomach for tax-funded stadiums here. We built 3 stadiums in the space of less tha 10 years, and it caused massive political uproar. The conservatives don't like it because they don't think it's the job of government to build stadiums, and liberals don't like it because they would rather see the money go to social services, education, etc. The baseball stadium especially is still a sore spot because voters voted it down, then the state legislature went ahead and did it anyway with a revised tax-funding package.

Plus the rumor is that David Stern does not want a team here, because he wants Seattle to be made an example of. Right now Tampa/St. Pete is the largest market without an NBA team, and Seattle is 2nd largest. Seattle is around 12th or 13th largest, and Tampa is 1 or 2 notches above.

Well the Orlando Tampa Market is almost combined or too close for either city to get a sport that the other city already has.
Although I do think Tampa could support an NBA team.

Especially now that the Clippers landed Chris Paul, the NBA would be better served by not moving the Sacramento Kings to Anaheim. I hope they do stay in Sacto, but if they do move, LA shouldn't be the place. The Lakers (LA) and Kings (Sacramento) had one of the best rivalries in history in the early 2000s, and it would all just disappear if they move to their former rivals' city. Plus LA is doing fine with basketball talk and hype with the Paul trade and, if anything, the Kings moving to Anaheim would be bad for the budding Clipper-Laker rivalry and just basketball in general in the city of Los Angeles.

California is the toughest, hardest state to get a Professional Sports Venue, Stadium built, especially L.A., the most difficult city, the Rose Bowl and Coliseum were built in the 1920's, since then no new stadium has been built in or around L.A., and why the NFL still has not returned to L.A., yes there is recent talk of it for stadiums in the city of industry and downtown L.A. but i will literally, believe it when it happens, i feel L.A. and the NFL have been teasing, leading on Southern Californian's for nearly 2 decades since the Rams and Raiders left.
