Re: Could a NBA team make it in Kentucky?
A revisiting of the Kentucky Colonel name would make sense, as that team had a great-- though short-- pedigree.
And, yeah, I think it'd work well as an NBA city. Louisville's centrally located and can draw from larger cities (Cincinnati, St. Louis) and smaller ones (Lexington) for a broad fanbase. The key, IMO, is signing local players.
