This has been something that has been bugging me for a long time, and it is that some states in the U.S. have a glut of sports teams while others have few if not none at all. For example lets look at the NBA in California.
Los Angeles Lakers
Los Angeles Clippers
Golden State Warriors
Four out of the five teams in the Pacific coast are located in one state, while Washington, Oregon, and Nevada have nothing in terms of a NBA team.
Baseball is even worse when it comes to teams located in one state with California having five.
San Diego Padres
Los Angeles Angels
San Fransico Giants
and the Los Angeles Dodgers
The same could be said for New York with the NFL having the: Buffalo Bills, New York Giants, and New York Jets.
So does it bug anyone else that a city can have two teams for one sport while entire states have none? And some states having as many as 3 or 4 or even 5 teams for one sport? Also I am curious if something similar is seen in Europe with football teams.
