Portland, Denver, Minneapolis, Toronto would be my first choices.

San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, San Antonio would be ok.

I'd rather play in Europe than a lot of other NBA cities.

From living in south Florida for most of my life, I don't understand why people would live Orlando. Can y'all that choose Orlando explain why?

Portland easily for me. Idk why but Portland is one of the two cities (San Diego the other one) I'd love to live in permanently.

I would choose one of Miami, Washington, Charlotte, or Toronto. Those are probably my favorite cities in the NBA world.

San Diego would be ideal but I'd probably want to be in LA or the Bay. I'd also like to play in DC too, absolutely love the city.

LA, SF, NY, and Chicago for sure. Milwaukee, Philly, Sacramento and Miami are my next tier. Won't consider the rest.

Anywhere to be honest. As long as the organization has first class facilities and a defined culture and professional vibe to it, I'm fine with that.

But if I had to be picky about it -- the weather is something to consider for myself. Here at California, the weather here is practically perfect. You can literally ask me "If you have seen and felt snow before" I would flat out and say "No, no I have not seen and felt snow before"

Philly: you win a title there, you are a god for life. And cheesesteaks!
Miami: I love fishing and eating fresh grouper, red and yellowtail snapper, and reef diving. Florida Keys are close and I love the Keys.

Sadly, while I love the Lakers, I will never willingly live on the west coast again.

New York City, baby. Or Los Angeles.

I'm open to most cities actually. It would just be easier to list the cities I would have zero interest in.

Utah, Cleveland, Indiana, Milwaukee, and Miami.

My biased pick is to play and live in the Bay Area.

Other than that, I wouldn't mind living in the following cities:

Los Angeles
Portland
New York
Brooklyn
Boston
Miami

As for PLAYING, I'd love to play for the cities above, but also Milwaukee and Toronto due to their awesome fan bases.
