Wouldnt want a city where traffic is too ridiculous so NYC, Chicago, Boston, LA would be out. Just not sure I'd like Miami as a city and wouldnt want to be outside the US. Would love places like Cleveland or Indiana since I'm a midwest guy. Dallas and OKC would be great too...not too fast but better winter weather. Man I'm boring.

With no hesitation, it'd be Seattle. Just an awesome city. Hope to move our there when finished!
LA or SF are great as well, except for their basketball teams. :)

It depends if I was a younger player or a vet. I would look at which team would give the biggest role and opportunity because if I believed I could play for multiple seasons, I would pick the team that would help me sign the next multi-year deal. Being the die-hard basketball fan that I am, I would be glad I'm in the NBA and would try to maximize my opportunities first.

If the multi-year deal is offered already, then I'd go with most of the major cities by default. Some of the smaller markets, such as Portland or Minnesota, I would still consider because of the cities themselves. Portland isn't too long of a flight to either CA or Seattle as well if I decided to leave. Even though the weather isn't as great as say CA or Miami, I still would factor in less traffic and population.

Because even when the Clippers are losing, they still make the owner money since LA is such a huge market. Donald Sterling moved to LA for that reason, because not many fans showed up when the Clippers were losing in San Diego. Orange County would be a plausible market too for the Clippers (Irvine, Anaheim, etc), as it would be closer in proximity for San Diego fans to drive up and see.

When basketball fans couldn't afford paying for seats at Lakers games, the Clippers were a nice alternative. My first NBA game I went to was actually a Clippers game at the LA Sports arena.

Celtics for me. Haven't made it up to Boston yet, but I'm not mad at it.

We definitely deserve a team. Especially now that our football team is gone.

I am a free agent. I've love to play in Boston.

Hell I'm already here, and I am looking for a raise. I am a great bench mob member. I can celly with the best of them. I am also a mean towel holder.

I guess San Francisco would be nice about now.
Recent real life trades have shown me that I have no idea what a 'fair' value of a player actually is. So, when I comment on the value of your proposed trade take it with the knowledge that I have no real clue.
