Assuming the Kings get moved to Seattle. The last three teams to move have been the Sacramento Kings, the Seattle Sonics, the Charlotte Hornets, and the Vancouver Grizzlies. Who's next?

I'd say Memphis. I think they'll hit a wall these next couple years and attendance will dwindle to those levels it was at during the last Pau Gasol years. Tennessee's not basketball country, a bad-mediocre team in that market for a few years mixed with suspect owners will be a recipe for disaster.

All this is pure speculation based on pretty much nothing, though.
Lakers fan since 99.

Milwaukee, Charlotte... outside of the US nobody has heard about these cities.
Everyone underrated Kobe's ego and just thought he would be Paul Pierce when Garnett and Allen joined, instead he went Black Mamba and turned Dwight into Kwame and Nash into Smush.

Memphis.

A 30-something from Cali doesn't buy the Grizzlies to keep them in Memphis.

Detroit is a storied franchise. 3 championships in the last 30 years, more than anyone not named Lakers, Bulls and Spurs.

They are crap now but they won't get moved.

Are you for real man, seriously? Toronto? Really bud? Toronto.

Do you understand anything about economics, size of market, loyalty of a fanbase, attendance, merchandizing, ownership, TV deals etc... You know the factors that determine a franchises long term sustainability?

You are a clown. :lol: But 2 out of 3 ain't bad I guess.

Sorry to tell you this, but Toronto is in a much better state than Indiana.

In fact we are 13th this year in attendance with a team 10 games under .500 (and that is AFTER this recent stretch of 7-3), while your Pacers are at 26th, only above such powerhouses as Milwaukee, Charlotte, Detroit, and the Kings.

Ouch, now I know that has got to hurt.

Probably Milwaukee. We haven't been relevant since Don Nelson left in the 80's. Pretty sad for a once proud winning organization. Herb Kohl has driven this team into the ground. He's content with going for the 8th seed every year.
But he's also stated he'd only sell the team to a new owner that guarantees them staying in Milwaukee.
