As we head into the NBA playoffs, let’s take a look at some of the best and worst cities for basketball.
These findings are courtesy of Wallethub, which arrived at these rankings by comparing more than “290 of the largest cities across 21 key metrics, ranging from the performance level of each city’s NBA and NCAA Division 1 basketball teams to ticket prices to stadium accessibility.”
