Oklahoma City Basketball

Apropos of Bruno’s conversation with Eugene this week, a list of the largest Metropolitan Statistical Areas in the country without a NBA team (rankings in parentheses):

    Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario, CA (14)
  • San Diego-Carlsbad-San Marcos, CA (17) (RIP Clippers!)
  • St. Louis, MO-IL (18)
  • Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, FL (19)
  • Baltimore-Towson, MD (20)
  • Pittsburgh, PA (22) (go Fish!)
  • Cincinnati-Middletown, OH-KY-IN (24)
  • Kansas City, MO-KS (29)
  • Las Vegas-Paradise, NV (30)
  • San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, CA (31)
  • Columbus, OH (32)
  • Virginia Beach-Norfolk-Newport News, VA-NC (34)
  • Providence-New Bedford-Fall River, RI-MA (36)
  • Austin-Round Rock, TX (37)
  • Nashville-Davidson-Murfreesboro-Franklin, TN (39)
  • Jacksonville, FL (40)
  • Louisville-Jefferson County, KY-IN (42)
  • Richmond, VA (43)

The Oklahoma City MSA is 44th on this list . . . and whatever happened to the Ballhawgs anyway?

P.S., you can do the same thing with media markets . . . it’s not pretty (Birmingham vs. Harrisburg all the way to the finals, baby!) . . .
