    Fuck i wish the Grizzlies was still here. I remember attending the last Grizzlies home game back in 2001. A lot of people were crying. It was a pretty emotional game.

    Vancouver is a great basketball market.

    Is it because of the exchange rate? Raps charge an insane amount for tickets compared to other teams in the league. Or do the Kings just have better sponsors?
    I have no idea, I think our revenue model is wrong, but that's just a guess.

    (By the way, Kings get $64 revenue per fan, while Raps get just $24)

    This is also why it's always stupid for somebody to say something like "Vince saved basketball in Canada." The Raptors have never been in jeopardy. Toronto is a great sports city. Vancouver on the other hand...too much granola.
    To be fair Toronto has like 6 million people vs 2.5 in van. Van is considered a global city being on the pacific coast and gorgeous, but in size is closer to his cousins Calgary and Edmonton than Toronto.

    Nah, Kings are actually more valuable than the Raptors. They're worth around $1.6-2.0B but their debt/value ratio is too high. Our revenue earnings are pretty much the same, too.

    Raps revenue potential is poor compared to the Kings.

    The train wreck that is new York has strangehold at #1..no wonder they don't care about a proper rebuild, they print money regardless. Still though..imagine they actually WERE good
    If NY ever gets their sh!t together, they would make the NBA so much damn money.

    Interesting to see a team like Sacramento make the top 15. Not one playoff appearance in over a decade, and yet still valued so highly. Is it because they changed owners recently?

    You can't really make a 30 team league competitive.. not enough talented players on the planet to make that happen. If they cut the league to 14 or 16 teams it'll be a lot funner, but then the Raptors wouldn't have a team.
    Raptors would still have a franchise by every metric other than ESPN's narrative.

    Franchise value as of Feb 2018 (https://www.forbes.com/sites/kurtbad...145d87da7155):



    And that's why James Dolan doesn't care if the Knicks suck.

    So many bad teams in the NBA man smfh. This is going to be another blowout.

    The NBA would be a lot more entertaining and competitive if Klay, Durant and Curry were on 3 different teams.
    And LeBron and Kyrie.....oh wait .....

    It's not basketball related fyi, it's burgers! The police Chief has an interesting name, is Eric Smith hiding a second job?

    Police shoot, kill man they say came armed to downtown Orlando Wahlburgers
    Police shot and killed a man who came armed into a downtown Orlando Wahlburgers restaurant Wednesday morning, the Orlando Police Department said.

    Police did not immediately identify the man. A person in the Wahlburgers had a domestic violence injunction against him, Orlando Police Deputy Chief Eric Smith
