The Lounge>Toronto Raptors to play in KC for 2021 season?
Deberg_1990 08:31 PM 10-27-2020

KC mayor Quinton Lucas, US Senators Roy Blunt, Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran, and US Rep Emanuel Cleaver co-signed a letter to the NBA commissioner's office and Raptors ownership making the case for Kansas City to be the temporary home, if needed.

Kansas City, Missouri, is a major metropolis with more than 2 million residents. Those living in the Midwestern city have access to a number of community-building activities that make the city a nice place to live.

According to local expert Tonya Goth Simmons, locals can play cards by the river at a riverboat casino, take in a show at the Kansas City Symphony, learn a little bit about the country's rich jazz history at the American Jazz Museum, or enjoy some delicious barbecue.

Population: 495,327

Average annual salary: $49,460

Quality of life: 6.2

Value: 7.7


Evidently there are at least 48 better cities in America for people to choose from.

There was 0% chance of them picking KC... The common wisdom is that KC is already oversaturated as a sports market with the Chiefs, Royals, and the college teams. That's what sports business people think about KC.

That's not why KC wasnt selected. At some point people are going to have to acknowledge what's going on no matter how hard they want to pretend it doesnt exist. Our hospitals are at near capacity. Our bars and resteraunts are forced to close at 10 PM til the end of January and that's not the end of it.

Tampa-

no income tax.

Sucks for KC. I mean that. I root for KC as a city more than MPLS.

But the NBA is over rated and sold out to the hip hop crowd.


By the way-I am still upset at the NCAA for leaving KC. Just think-KC could be hosting ALL NCAA tourney games this year. Maybe have games at Arrowhead with a covered stadium. (yeah, I said it)

Probably more Americans on the team than Canadians but your argument still holds.

The NBA was likely looking for a location in the Eastern Time Zone and relatively short travel for other teams in the Raptors' division.

That probably has more to do with the decision to go with Tampa rather than anything specifically wrong with KC IMO.

Yep. Eastern Time Zone for TV purposes since all the games will be televised back to Toronto plus no income tax. And probably a one year realingment with Toronto moving to the Southeast Division and Washington to the Altantic might be in the works as well.

Did you say "Athletics say hello" when they were discussing an expansion MLB team here?
