The Gonzo 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

Wonder how big of a role state income tax + being in Florida (vs MO or KY) played in this? Probably came down to a vote by the players.

Most likely didn't want to go up against a potential 3 nights of Garth Brooks or an AC/DC tour at the Sprint Center

Good I didn't want a rental team anyway. Push for the NHL and fuck the NBA they are not coming to Midwest KC.

Warm weather and more money (once they establish residence there). Hard to beat that.

Both are great live, but KC is a basketball town. The NBA would do well in KC.

You're probably right.

I'll have to continue to live vicariously through real basketball cities like OKC, Memphis, and Minneapolis.

Better tax situation, better winter weather, more strip clubs... if it was up to the players they would stay in Tampa permanently.

Toronto is undeniably a better city that Tampa (at least in pre-pandemic times, it's kind of a ghost town now and is just about to go into total shutdown again) so that decision isn't quite as easy. Would help if basketball was a summer sport not a winter one, though.
