5. Your application must include the following:
-Specify reasons for leaving
No disrespect to New Orleans, but they need to stick to Mardi Gras and jazz music. Let's put a team on the Gulf Coast, but keep it out of the hurricane path. Tampa would not only provide a safer environment, but a more fiscally stable one as well. We would not have to worry about constant reconstruction to the facilities from hurricane damage. Tampa is also an up and coming sports city. The Bucs have been contending for years and the Rays are the team to beat in the AL now. Throw a basketball team into the city and the city will THRIVE! Trust me..the people there are sports fanatics..They support their teams.
-Set a timeline of where you plan on your team being from years 1-5
Year 1-5: I'll be aggressive every year. Those of you in Siddy's league know how persistent I am with improving my team (I can show you a transaction log to prove it). My team will be there year in and year out...I will win a championship within 5 years.
-Get permission from other team if you are moving them to city with another team.
No other teams in the city.
-If moving them to an unoccupied city, you must state why the city you want to move to would want you to move there.
Like I said, Tampa residents love their teams. The Bucs draw people in 8 games (not playoffs) per year. Baseball has their attention in the summer. Let's give the people what they want--championships. Help boost this growing city and approve the relocation of this NBA franchise.
-Come up with new name, logo, colors (or you can just keep the ones you have).
Tampa Bay, Bull Sharks--colors are the same..current NO colors...logo would say SHARKS across the front
-Finally, it will be voted on by the league, and you will need 2/3rds approval.
APPROVE ME PLEASE!
6. Lastly, be realistic. If you take over a team such as the Cavaliers or Suns, those teams aren't moving anytime soon. Don't expect to be able to move them here either (same goes for Boston, LA, San Antonio, etc.)
