Reality Check: Downtown Kansas City NBA Hoop Dreams Busted Without Big Bucks

Kansas City needs a billionaire to get an NBA team or it'll go to Las Vegas

It's as simple as A-B-C-D. That's how former National Basketball Association team president Andy Dolich explained it when discussing the four things league owners will consider if they decide to add more teams. "The A is avidity: the market you're picking has to be an avid sports market," he said.

Kansas City or Vegas for your basket ball team an owner has to dwell on.


Does an owner have to think very hard on the matter which would be the better city?

Face it Kansas City, there will be NO NBA. Get over it.

KC has lots of big-spender wannabees.
But look at the financial beating the new owners of the Royals are taking.
Professional sports teams need, not just billionaire owners, but billionaires who understand that they will have keep spending THEIR OWN MONEY forever.
Certainly in a small market like KC.
Bring back the T-Bones!

Could've had a nice trial run with Toronto but the idiot big mouth blacks told them KC was a racist city. Blame it solely on them.

The NBA sucks, it's the China Basketball League. KC needs to stick with the college basketball scene, fuck the NBA.

An NBA team here would fail within 5 years. It would be neat at first but then after everyone realizes that we are a shitty expansion team and annual losers nobody will show up. Look at the Royals attendance. When the team is a winner everyone will show up. When they lose they will run out of money and leave town.

What people seem to forget is that was part of the scam to get the p&l built, was the wink wink nod nod deal that a major sports team nba or hockey would come here if we built a nice arena, they were NEVER GONNA BRING A TEAM HERE PEOPLE! We were duped into spending all that money so some developer buddy could get rich. SCAMMED AGAIN.

I team was never coming. It was the big lie that Kay Waldo Cronkite whatever the fuck her middle name was Barnes, and her Wormtongue, Steve Glorioso told the rubes in KC Proper to build the damn thing.

Barnes was a do nothing mayor. Didn't do anything about crime, jobs, housing, infrastructure. During her time more jobs and people moved to Johnson County and eastern jackson then any mayor before.

A NBA or NHL was a pipe dream.
