Everything except COL, traffic, and surrounding cities goes to Atlanta. Job market is a bit debatable at the moment.

Atlanta hands down by miles and miles. This isn't really a fair comparison anyway. Atlanta can be compared to Dallas or Houston. Oklahoma City would be a more fair comparison with Birmingham, Chattanooga, or Knoxville.

I wouldn't even say Job market is debatable anymore. Georgia was 2nd of all states for Job Growth(+25400) in the country just behind California in February and it almost beat California(+29400) despite being almost 4 times as small in population and only having one major city.

Source: Regional and State Employment and Unemployment Summary

Truth is Atlanta and Georgia is booming right now in job growth and a lot of it isn't low wage job growth either.

Yeah, OKC just gets destroyed in this comparison. Hell, OKC doesn't even have the better basketball team anymore.

Atlanta plays most of their games in a weaker division against weaker opponents. Not to mention Durant has been hurt a lot this season. In a series, a healthy OKC would embarrass Atlanta in 6 games, max!
