JAMIE H. VAUGHT: Ex-UK All-American Dan Issel Believes New NBA Franchise Would Prosper in Louisvill

By Jamie H. Vaught


In recent years, there have been some movements or discussions as well as media stories about bringing an NBA franchise to the city of Louisville.

And there is also an active Facebook page, titled "Bring the NBA to Louisville," a grassroots movement by the fans.

As you may recall, the Derby City was once the home of the popular Kentucky Colonels of the now-defunct American Basketball Association. The team had a big statewide following and was among the league's leaders in home attendance, which was often higher than several teams in the more-established NBA.
