I follow the NBA everyday and hear no buzz about the Celitcs. They have no star players, and no one thinks they're a championship contender. A casual NBA fan couldn't name one player on the Celitcs.

The Twin Cities are hardly boomtowns. And they don't have faster growth than other cities in their immediate region. Most other metros within the Upper Midwest (Rochester, Fargo, and the like) have faster growth rates.

Realtors, builders, developers, sellers, and buyers are obsessed with them for monetary reasons.

Some of the rest of us wish they would quit hyping temporary bubbles as booms. The effects of wild ups and downs do more harm than good. Add to that the "'Me, too" effect--people moving places just because lots of other people are, without really studying what is there--and the results of hype get even more intensified. Then that is followed by some sort of crisis, either a bust or a situation where the town cannot pay for infrastructure to meet increased demands, and it resorts to one tax increase after another, which drives out the middle class.

NBA fans? they literally gave the blueprint on how to beat the Warriors.
