WNBA should expand to Eugene

The Oregonian and The Athletic reported this 7 days that Portland produced the brief listing of probable growth cities for the WNBA, alongside with Oakland, Nashville, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Toronto. I say Portland experienced its likelihood 20 many years in the past. Deliver the WNBA to Eugene, in which Phil Knight can invest in a qualified basketball group for a dime on the greenback.

Knight has already created an arena here that is just the right size. Kelly Graves has developed our hunger for women’s basketball. Sabrina Ionescu is building her profession as a celebrity. Eugene warrants the probability.

The Fire lasted only three years in Portland. In 2002, the NBA offered the league to local franchise entrepreneurs, but Portland couldn’t find a customer so the workforce folded.

Portland has grow to be a more substantial city considering the fact that then, but with scaled-down ambitions. To numerous, it has come to be an angry, filthy place the place the long term doesn’t search so brilliant. Housing price ranges, targeted visitors, homelessness and a dysfunctional governing administration has nipped at the city’s heels for decades. Now those people difficulties are dividing and dilapidating the city.
