    NBADL looking at Cedar Rapids

    Another pro hoops league eyes C.R. | GazetteOnline.com - Cedar Rapids, Iowa City

    Looks like this guy has Cedar Rapids high on his list to bring a NBADL team to cedar rapids. Quad cities is another possible city for the team to goto.

    Re: NBADL looking at Cedar Rapids

    Are you kidding me? We have a franchise called "Iowa" Energy. Wouldn't that defeat the purpose of that name? I knew they should have Called it Des Moines.
    They must be really expanding if they are looking at another team in Iowa.

    Re: NBADL looking at Cedar Rapids

    The team is getting moved from Arkansas after a failed move last year, so I don't think it will be a new team like Des Moines was.

    Teams like that never make it in Cedar Rapids. I don't know what it is but they never stay very long. It might be the other pro sports in Iowa City.

    Re: NBADL looking at Cedar Rapids

    But Cedar Rapids does tend to be one of the highest drawing cities for the other leagues that have been in town. The leagues themselves just never tend to make it other than the CBA I believe. If CR can support a Hockey team as well as they do for Iowa not really being a hockey state I think a NBAD team could do alright there, especially with the NBA behind it. Cedar Rapids always needs something new especially with the whole downtown renovation going on it would be a good thing IMO.

    I would love to see a NBDL team come to CR. I would probably go watch it quite a bit.

    Exactly, it really surprises me that the other basketball teams never really took hold even with pretty good attendance.
