Of course I have heard of the Oilers. That is not the point. You implied that Houston doesn't have a NFL team which is not true.

Los Angeles lost 2 NFL teams but they now have the Rams back and the Chargers.

I don't think Portland is realistic as they will never build an MLB stadium with public funds. Private? perhaps.

Portland State University research suggests the three major counties on the Oregon side of the metro grew by a combined 32,000 from 7/2016 to 7/2017. I'm guessing Clark County, Washington added another 8 to 10,000.

The city should get an NFL or NHL or MLB team solely based on the fact that the metro is leaving the metros of some current teams in the dust.

NHL: Milwaukee (Natural rivalry with the Blackhawks and Wild), Kansas City (the two nearest teams to KC are the Blues and Stars), and Seattle (major market rich with capital and natural rival for Vancouver)
NFL: San Antonio (they had two failed bids: The first was to get the Cardinals in 1987 and the second was to start an expansion team in 1993). Objections would likely be from Jerry Jones and Bob McNair for having a third team close to the Cowboys and Texans. But the population and distance between the cities in the Texas Triangle could support a franchise in a city where the Spurs are the lone professional sports team in the four major leagues.
NBA: St. Louis, Seattle,
MLB: Charlotte, Montreal, Vancouver, and New Orleans

The Aís and Rays are potential relocation franchises to Portland, but an unknown third MLB franchise is apparently growing antsy.

Me and my best friend has a discussion about this. We are huge basketball fans so we decided that:

Baltimore, Seattle, Vegas, San Diego, Pittsburgh, Kansas City to name a few.

I mean if Milwaukee which is a very unattractive market has a team then why donít some of these cities not have a team?

He said that Milwaukee has a team. He said, if Milwaukee can have a team, then why can't the other cities mentioned also have NBA teams.

The Austin City-Council voted 7-4 in favor of allowing Anthony Precourt build an MLS grade soccer specific stadium in the Domain area of Austin on a site that is referred to as McKalla Place.

The stadium will be privately financed with Precourt footing all of the costs. Precourt has acquired the loans from JP Morgan Chase to move forward on the site. The Columbus Crew will be leaving Columbus for Austin and will likely change their name once getting to their new city (MLS teams always change their name when they relocate).

With MLS to Austin, that underscores the city's first professional sports team in one of the Big 5 sports leagues of NBA, NHL, NFL, MLB, and MLS.

Who said it's an unattractive market? Someone who hasn't been there? Milwaukee has two teams...and would have the Packers, if Green Bay didn't. Their two teams do quite well, actually. SO, don't pretend to know what you're talking about.
