NBA Expansion---- If the NBA decides that it wants expansion in the next few years, or sooner and if one team wants to relocate, per the Gregory Crawford Sports Biz index, here are the top cities that deserve NBA expansion or to get a team that wants to relocate.
2. San Diego
5. Kansas City
7. Las Vegas
9. St. Louis
Atlanta---- Does Atlanta really deserve an NBA basketball team. No one really seems to care, until talk turns to the team possibly moving out of Atlanta.
The Hawks are for sale right now, we valued the team today in Crawford's Sports Biz 59 Seconds, http://crawfordsgolfdaily.blogspot.com (golf and sports biz). As has been stated the politicos of Atlanta want to keep the team, but do the fans really care.
Best example of fans not caring, the Hawks have a great team this year, with the best record in the Eastern Conference, but still the team ranks only 24th in NBA attendance.
Oregon/Oregon State---For two teams that have played against each other more than any other NCAA D-1 teams in the country and have a great rivalry going in all sports, it sure did not seem like it this past weekend, as only 7,100 fans showed up for the Oregon State/Oregon men's Pac-12 game in Eugene. The lowest crowd for the Civil War battle in Eugene, in the last 21 years.
Tyler Geving---- The popular Portland State men's basketball coach will do something very unique tonight, when his team plays against Northern Colorado in Greeley. To hear what he will be doing, http://tobtr.com/s/7241195 on the Tyler Geving Basketball Show.
Santa Clara/Portland--- As I say often, the West Coast Conference has just above average players, but great coaches. Two of those coaches will battle tonight in Portland, when Santa Clara visits the Chiles Center. It is always fun to watch Eric Reveno and Kerry Keating develop their strategies on the court.
My score prediction on the game:
Santa Clara 68 Portland 69.
