Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas took to Twitter over the weekend to throw Kansas City’s name into the conversation, saying the two would be a perfect match. As for location, the T-Mobile Center downtown can accommodate over 19,000 fans, just a few hundred seats smaller than Scotiabank Arena sits for a regular-season outing.
Having the support of the city, plus one of the premier icons today in the world of sports, the Raptors and the NBA should consider making it their home temporarily l. Kansas City is already home to two professional sports while Louisville will potentially be in the mix of their own season in the ACC.
Mahomes already brought his favorite burger franchise, Whataburger, to Kansas City. Perhaps his influence could add to help the city bring in an NBA franchise as well.
