Could happen:

I didn't know this was even a possibility; Orlando Magic moving to Kansas City. That'd be..... weird. And it would screw with the new divisional alignments.

I think if that happened, Kansas City would be in the West and Memphis would move East. At least that makes sense, geographically wise.

I doubt there'd be any realignment.

I hope the Magic move to Kansas City.

No, they need to move to St. Louis. That way, the Pacers and the other former ABA teams don't have to keep paying royalties to the former owners of the Spirit.

Boy, that's the truth. Why Kansas City? They already lost a basketball and hockey team.

And that's probably why Vancouver DIDN"T move there. I'd love to see KC and even St. L get NBA bball. Get the NBA back out to middle America and make it a national sport rather than a "all the teams you want to see are on a coast" league.

What was wrong with Kansas City 20 years ago? Was fan support the problem with the Kings before they moved to Omaha and then onto Sacramento? Wasn't Kemper Arena brand new when the Kings went to KC back in the day?

What is so different now?

I know Orlando is on the hook for a new arena, but for some reason I could see the Hornets franchise moving to KC before Orlando because New Orleans has major questions reguarding fan support and sponser support.

Thank God we got the Fieldhouse...because these stories always seem to follow small market teams.

I think Kansas City could support an NBA team.IMO they have one of the best fan bases for an NFL team.I mean when the Colts played them in the playoffs (Which where the Colts were the underdogs)The place was as loud as a Jet plane taking off.

I agree that the Jazz---oops, :blush:, the Hornets should leave New Orleans. Nobody is going to the games.

You may have a better chance at having the Las Vegas Kings.

That's a very good question.

This was supposed to be a witty comment about the fact that the Magic would still be able to use the weather as a recruitment ploy, but I couldn't figure out how to put it together. The idea is to reference H.Charlie without being too obvious.

Somebody help me. My brain has leaked out of my ear.
