Whitlock says KC needs the NBA
Jason Whitlock's column from today says that KC needs the NBA.
Jason is basing this on watching some NBA playoff games. I have news for you Jason -- PLAYOFF GAMES ARE EXCITING IN EVERY SPORT.
Tonight's Game 1 of the Stanley Cup playoffs was a classic.
-The rest of the NHL playoffs have been amazing.
-I'm sure the MLS playoffs will be exciting this fall.
-The last 10 NASCAR races are exciting.
The question is -- can KC fans stand a mid-season snoozefest between the KC NBA team and the Oklahoma City/New Orleans Hornets when they just shelled out $40 to go to KU-Oklahoma at Allen Fieldhouse the night before.
I don't think so and it seems the NBA doesn't think so either. They have shown no interest in KC.
-No NBA21 group exists in KC
-No NBA exhibition game has been here since Shaq played for LA and LeBron was in Junior High.
-No potential owner has said they want to come here.
The NHL has had all three of these in the past nine months.
I think either an NBA or NHL team needs to go in the Sprint Center. Lately, I haven't seen the interest from the NBA.
