NBA Team In Louisville As Early As Next Season
 

 

 Matthew Hays @ KSR said:
A huge part in bringing an NBA team to the state of Kentucky lies in the active participation of the people who would be supporting that team. That’s why Nick Evans, my friend and the founder of StraitPinkie.com, has dedicated himself to pushing the agenda of the grassroots campaign. By demonstrating that we, the fans, are welcome to and excited about the idea of an NBA team in Kentucky, it makes it easier for the people with the money to successfully argue Louisville’s claim.

The opportunity provided by an NBA team is one that the state and city of Louisville should latch onto. With the global branding power of the NBA, it could only help stimulate the growth of the city and state. There seems to be a generally negative perception towards growth in the state of Kentucky. The city of Louisville has one of the worst migration percentages of any city its size in the country. In Louisville, 78 percent of the people that work in the city were born there. The worldwide reach of the NBA is an opportunity to encourage growth and paint a different picture for the city and the state of Kentucky as a whole.

Chris wrote a fantastic post yesterday about the Kentucky Colonels that generated some great nostalgia and good feelings for the state’s last professional basketball team. Kentucky is a basketball state and with the high volume of UK players who will be making their way to the NBA over the next few seasons, there’s no reason to think that that love should be contained solely to the college game.

John Calipari endorses the idea, Matt Jones endorses the idea and Rick Pitino is totally against it. What else do you need?

Make your voice heard and join a movement that could do a lot of good for the state:

 The Courier-Journal is reporting that J. Bruce Miller, the attorney hired by the city of Louisville to potentially bring an NBA team to the city, met with NBA commissioner David Stern yesterday in New York. After the meeting, Miller said ”I think it looks very good” and told the paper that he’s in talks with a group of foreign investors, who would pay to renovate Freedom Hall. Yes, you read that right. An NBA team in Louisville would not play at the Yum! Center. It would play at a renovated and updated Freedom Hall.

"Conversations will now begin between the NBA and these foreign investors with regard to the various things the league needs to know from them," Miller said.

Miller has known David Stern for more than 30 years. He has been involved in at least three previous attempts to bring an NBA franchise to Louisville.

They are talking about $80-$120 million renovation of Freedom Hall by October because you cannot put teams such as the Celtics and Lakers in a visitors locker room that resembles a local high school gym.

The Kentucky f!ghting Cousins is a more fitting name for the Kings right now. That Demarcus Cousins kid is a rascal.

It will either be the Kings or the Hornets.

If CP3 resigns with the Hornets I would prefer New Orleans moving here, but if CP3 is going somewhere through free agency I would have no problem with obtaining the Kings.

Been saying for the past 5 years the next state that should get a basketball sqaud should be Kentucky.. THAT IS A BASKETBALL STATE. Sellouts every game for sure.


Rondo gonna leave the Celts and put his hometown team on the map

Bye bye Hornets

It wont be the Kings the Maloofs arent going to sell them, they'd just relocate them. This investor/lawyer is looking to purchase a team, NBA just bought out the Hornets..
