    Buy, But Minneapolis-St.Paul area takes a close second.

    You guys would get a lot more recognition if you weren't so close to NYC.

    No. Dubuque, IA is. We produce some decent sports talent. We once had a guy play on the D-League for a little while in the 70's. We usually end up with 10-15 D-1 recruits a year in sport, but we are never good enough to get a guy to the pro's.

    It's apparently a very unsafe city man. Lol, talking to people about that place, all I've heard is bad things. But I will say this. The Prudential Center is the second nicest arena I've been to (only behind Oracle arena [Warriors]). I live in LA and I think it shits on Staples Center.

    SEATTLE. A staff there would have a a lot larger market, and would have a better fan base. Seattle is a much better metropolis, and is far farther far from the following staff. Correctly, it can be one of the most biggest metro areas without an NBA staff. Newark loses fans to groups in the big apple. The region itself additionally isn't a very good one. No one desires to play in Jersey. Seattle is a much more modern day and enjoyable city. The way in which Seattle lost the Sonics also wasn't fair to the enthusiasts there. Persons are upset about it to this present day. Actually do they deserve a new crew earlier than Newark.
