Not gonna happen... Too many other places are a better fit for a team. Oklahoma City, Kansas City, Las Vegas, maybe Louisville.

Of all the pro sports franchises besides MLS, NBA is probably the most likely. And it may end up being someone like Charles Barkley that ends up bringing it to Birmingham. May be a little while before it happens, but it is definitely possible. But for right now, support the hometown UAB. UAB is probably going to be a Top 25 team this next year. Not this year, but next year I think, UAB is scheduled to play Gonzaga at the BJCC.

I'm from Bham & haven't heard anything about plans to have the NBA come in. If so, maybe it can be in Ensley - Bessemer would still be too close. As far as Charles Barkley, he can stay in Philly.

The Pacers will be gone from Indy very soon. They're losing 15 mil. per season, and now they want the city of Indy to start footing the bill. Not gonna happen, I see Seattle, KC, STL, Cinci, Louisville making a run for them. I don't think B'ham can support it, though.

Seattle...

Anyway there's no way in hell Birmingham should have an NBA team...or any professional sports team for that matter. It's an itty-bitty metro which only has local influence.

Have you been to a game lately? Nascar is not fully booked and you want to bring what?
