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 Iíd type this but Kansas City is legit pursuing an NBA team. Hereís the latest, including three irrefutable takeaways: https://t.co/ZrkvFqUE6F

Trudeau government already set the precedent by blocking the Jays in July. Considering itís gotten much worse since then in Ontario, Iíd imagine they will make exactly the same decision again (if they donít want to come off as complete hypocrites that is, not that thatís ever stopped politicians before).

I guess Louisville was the front runner at some point but the Raptors opted out.....





Because Breonna Taylor.

Yeah but KC fans aren't interested. They proved in the 80s they'd put more fans in Kemper for indoor soccer and guys named Enzo. Never understood it. I guess they are still more into soccer for some reason.

Raptors just need a place to play. Any fans they get at all would be a bonus.

You're using the 80s as proof of kc not being interested in the nba? Really?

Sir, 2020 - 1980 = 40 years. The majority of ppl living in the KC area weren't alive back then.

I just want a Kansas City Raptors hat. Whos got the logo?

PNL will be renamed Jurassic Park District on gamedays.

It will be glorious.

If we ever got an NBA team permanently Id move downtown and get season tickets.

Still pissed about losing the Kings while INDOOR soccer thrived. Yes, indoor soccer over the freaking NBA. An utter embarrassment for KC. And I see soccer is still a big deal there apparently, although at least it's the outdoor crappy MLS version.

I've been to both, and IMO, if you've been to a KU home game, you will be sorely disappointed by an NBA game.

Iíve been to many games at KU, including the 1988 season and that wasnít anything close to seeing Kobe and Shaq.

Saw an article on this in The Athletic earlier this afternoon. I'd absolutely love the Raptors in KC.
