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.

Never thought Id type this but Kansas City is legit pursuing an NBA team. Heres the latest, including three irrefutable takeaways: https://t.co/ZrkvFqUE6F

NBA wants to start their season on December 22nd, so they'll have to resolve the Raptors' situation soon.

The competition is almost entirely down to KC (Sprint Center) and Louisville (KFC Yum Center), based on someone I'm pretty well connected to who works for Sprint Center (yeah yeah, I know it's now T-Mobile Center). They feel that we have a pretty strong offer on the table and are optimistic about landing Toronto for the 2021 season. Toronto is obviously trying hard to stick in their home city, but finding it difficult to reach a resolution with the government. So if they temporarily relocate, optimism is high that KC will be the choice.

I wonder how much of this involves fan revenue? They figure in Toronto they will get zero attendance where in KC they may let them have 3-5k fans or something. Even 3-5k fans for 41 games is alot of money.

I would absolutely order tickets to a game.

I suspect it has a lot to do with it and is one of the main perks of coming here rather than somewhere closer (like New York or Buffalo where that is unlikely to be allowed). Although Toronto is still their first choice given any other alternative, that is probably going to be taken out of their hands soon.

I know I'm getting old when I still call a bunch of stuff by the old name. I've never said "LA Chargers", that's still San Diego.

I still remember being a kid and thinking it was weird when people said "LA Raiders"

When I was a kid the Grizzlies were in Vancouver and I used to chat with chicks on AIM Instant Messenger. The quest for the most clever away messages always eluded me.

I would actually do it if restrictions lighten up a bit next year.

I generally come down once a year for a Chiefs playoff game still in January (and if I can combine that with a KU game all the better) but that appears unlikely to happen this year.

This would be so awesome for Kansas City and the Raptors! I really hope it happens.

Fair point....:-)
