Fair enough.

Nevertheless, there does seem to be an idea around that Dallas and Houston aren't major markets, which I've never really understood, based on the reasons I outlined earlier.
Have you ever been to Dallas or Houston? Shit holes. It's nothing to do with population.

Bucks are so underrated.

If you just looked at the way teams were playing they'd be comfortable favorites to win it all.

Maybe they don't get it this year, but next year (if we lose Durant), they should probably be favorites.

Competitive game in Milwaukee...

the bucks have gone with the 2015-17 cavs blue print of an unstoppable force surrounded by some of the best shooters in the league.. and naturally they’re a lot better defensively. Scary.

A large portion of Chicago and surrounds are a freezing shithole during the NBA season, yet they consistently sell out their large building, even with a crappy team.

The market is there, the Texan teams just need to tap into it. If that means adjusting prices to better fit with local socio-economic conditions for the "everyman", so be it.

In terms of local investment money and media and promotional opportunities for players and teams though, there's plenty of that already in Dallas and Houston.
