You should take all your opinions about the US, sum them up in like one or two sentences, and put it in a sig. That way when you post about anything else- literally anything else- you can still make your opinions known without having to repeat yourself.

Also, "Utah" is not a city.
I thought the Bucks should have drafted Denzel Valentine in the 10th spot.

Well I have lived in several NBA cities. LA/Dallas/Portland/SLC/Sacramento/Oakland/Orlando and I would probably go Portland or Sacramento. Both are pretty awesome places to live. Orlando would be pretty great to as long as you are some place else in the summer. Winters in Florida are my favorite.

I currently live in Salt Lake and I hate it but I know a lot of people who like it here for whatever that's worth.
I'm a stranger in a strange land.
If you ever see a 6'8" white dude running around SLC with a big Blazers tattoo on his right arm... Say whats up.

Chicago, New York, or Boston. Personally I like seasons and also like really passionate fans.

Some would argue Toronto is a top 5 NBA city/team in todays NBA. I wouldn't object against that assertion, amazing city. Top class management, amazing fans.

This gives me an excuse to publish an article on one of my favorite crazy free agent stories:

Ruben Patterson, the third-leading scorer for the Seattle SuperSonics last season, signed an offer sheet with the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday.

Patterson pleaded guilty to a sexual offense and recently served a 15-day sentence of home detention. Had he stayed with the Sonics, Patterson would have had to register as a sex offender in Washington.


http://articles.latimes.com/2001/jul/31/sports/sp-28955

I can't conceive of the media coverage if a player today pretty openly admitted he signed for a team one state over to avoid being listed as a sex offender.

Toronto since I'm from there. Assuming I'm a top tier talent, I'd take a pay cut and sign like 5 years, 50 million with a no trade clause. Bring in other talent to compete for perennial post season success. Hit up all the food spots I enjoy

First I'd want a team with players that are fun to play with. Milwauke so I can play with Giannis.

Toronto- fans + great city+ great people.
La- fame and stars
Phila- its my city.
New york- fame and stars and nightlife
Nola- weather and city is great.
And others would concider depending on situation-
Salt leik city, denver for reasons;)
Also for different reasons would never concider these top 5 cities:
1 atlanta, 2 atlanta, 3 detroit,4 houston 5 washington
And would try to avoid
sharlote, chicago, minesota, portland, cleveland,
Neutral on milwokee indiana orlando brooklyn

I'd like to play in DC for a short time.
Than move back to the SF where I'm from.
