10Mexico City, Mexico
Mexico City would have great potential for being an NBA city. It would also start the beginning of the globalization of the NBA. Mexico City has by far the largest population among the 10 cities listed below with more than 8 million. It is also one of the important financial centers in
North America and would generate a great amount of revenue for the league. It also has an arena that holds 22,030 people. However, crime is a big part of the country and this would make it difficult to attract any NBA team to want to play in Mexico City. You also wonder how many Americans would want to make a permanent move south of the boarder.
