people aren't gonna stop spending money/time on sports. if anything, the worse this country gets, the more people will use sports as a get-away.

All of these metro areas are larger than Cincinnatis and dont currently have an NBA team. I think we can all agree that most of these also have more money to spare than Cincinnati:
Riverside
Seattle
San Diego
St. Louis
Tampa
Baltimore
Pittsburgh

Cincinnati would also be competing with these:
Kansas City
Las Vegas
San Jose
Columbus
Virginia Beach
Austin
Nashville

For the CSA, there are also 3 ahead of Cincinnati. If you added Dayton to the CSA, Cincinnati is the next in line though.
This means Cincinnati will just have to work harder. Never say never.

Never...I'd focus on my energy on somthing else.

As stated in an earlier post, the NBA is going to focus on cities like OKC, such as Vegas, VBeach where they can command all the dollars and civic support.

Population is not as important anymore. They are hugely successful in markets like Orlando, SLC, Sacramento and Portland and should continue to be with that business model. I would also expect them to look internationally before Cincinnati.

Cincinnati's time is done for pro league expansion, unless someone like Uncle Carl thought it was worth bringing the team here. IMO, I dont think people really care enough.

Well...

May I mention Green Bay? And Tampa Bay, Anaheim, and Oakland?

These are all smaller cities that can support a major league sport. Sure, some of them may be within close proximity of large cities (Tampa, Los Angeles, San Francisco), but Dayton is within an hour and a half of roughly 6 million people, can draw from 3 different metro areas (4 if the Pacers are doing bad), and is in the heart of the vast basketball belt, which spans from the extreme western edges of our state to thruoghout Indiana. In fact, Greencastle, Indiana, which has a basketball hall of fame of some sort, is roughly halfway between Dayton at 70/75 and Downtown Indy.

Also, even if Dayton wasn't able to pull from the Cincy and Columbus metro areas for whatever reason, I would think that many that lived in the Dayton region would be proud to have a major league basketball team in their hometown, much like Green Bay is proud of having football in theirs. Much like Green Bay loves their pigskin, Daytonians REALLY love their hoops.

Why what? I take that back...if Cincinnati really changed, I mean, really changed, like started gaining 50,000 per per year (metro) or lost the Reds or Bengals, or for some reason became something that its not...it might get another team.

Hey, I dont want to discourage anybody from promoting their town, but I personally think that it better spending time and money on something that may actually happen. Kind of like Cincy's Olympic bid a few years back, but not as crazy...A waste of time (but perhaps, I just didnt have the time, money, or passion to give a damn.)

We've got a 700-footer under construction, along with a $1 billion dollar mixed development *across the street* under construction, which includes condos, apartments, retail, and entertainment ... save the tears & whining for another thread.

What the hell does this have to do with anything, especially the quote you are attacking?

You never have anything except meaningless stats and project updates to add. Why don't you try to comeback with some rationale once in a while.

Unless the NBA plans to play in the new 700 ft tower or in center of the Banks, I don't really think they give a rat's a$$ about your little projects.
