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.

Indiana would get relocated before Toronto.

Whichever team gets new ownership or demands a new stadium which the public can't pay for. No team is safe except for the big moneymakers in major markets, to think otherwise is naive.

I doubt Atlanta gets moved, our owners suck, they recently sold the Thrashers but they're required to stay in Atlanta under the terms of a bond refinance agreement that the Atlanta Spirit have with the city of Atlanta, the Hawks can't move for at least another 5 years until the Bonds are paid off completely. Let's say that the owners pay off the bonds in a year(which isn't likely as they have to pay over $123 mil) the Hawks still can't move, there's a $75 million penalty if they do move before the 2018-19 season and there's no way that the cheap Atlanta Spirit will pay $75 million for that. Even if money isn't the problem you have to take into account the TV deals, Atlanta is one of 3 big US sports cities that has big-money TV contracts. (TNT is Atlanta based, as is NBA TV and NBA.com). Atlanta is America's 8th largest television market and there's no way that Stern will just let the Hawks leave Atlanta.

Why are people saying Toronto? If anything, they need to put another team in Canada. Move Charlotte/Milwaukee to Vancouver.

LOL what is your justification for Detroit? I can't even imagine.

Attendance. Detroit has become a ghost town and now they can't even give away free tickets.

Yes Detroit fans used to be great and pack the palace. Yes the Pistons were good. But now they are putting up WNBA like attendance.

What the hell is this crap?

The owners are literally handing out free tickets yet they barely fill half of the arena. They have been sucking up millions of dollars from the NBA over the last several years.

If I was Stern I would want to contract the bucks, move the Grizzlies to Seattle, and get rid of Detroit. Then move New Orleans to the eastern conference.

Of course this will never happen but it would make the NBA better and get a crap load of more money.

GTFO.

3 NBA championships, bad boys, goin' to work team.

Talk about ignorance. NO team is good ALL the time. Not even the Celtics, or the Lakers. You don't move a top 5 franchise because their players age and they rebuild.

Atlanta/Milwaukee are better candidates...

Taylor is looking to sell his majority stake in the team but he is also looking to make a gradual transition over a number of years and he has always been committed to keeping the team in Minnesota. It's certainly possible in the future but I don't think it is that likely.

I hate relocations.

All those relocations and re-brandings just make it worse.

Lol @ Toronto

We haven't seen the playoffs in years, and still put up bigger attendance numbers than most playoff teams.

We ARE a sports town, we just suck.

Peep the forums and recent games against New York and Memphis, we're not going anywhere.

We're owned by Bell/Rogers, even financially we're doing fine.

1. Milwaukee
2. Memphis
3. Sacromento
4. Detroit
