    Really a lot of places are what you make them. If you're with fun people and people you like you're much more likely to think a city is really cool. Having fun anywhere is completely up to you.

    And seriously, most places have a lot of the same stuff. There are hot spots for certain things, like San Diego being a craft beer wonderland, or Austin having tons of live music, good BBQ and tons of bars on 6th Street that are packed Thurs-Sun with tons of stuff going on in the street.

    If you think a city is lame you were probably just doing it wrong.
    Amen.

    I have lived in 17 states, 5 countries, and visited just about every major city in the U.S. multiple times and I have loved it everywhere .. except one city.
    Fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory.

    It's an obvious overstatement to say having fun is completely up to you. But, yeah, you've got to have good people. ...you're more likely to find those people in certain cities, so, round n round we go. Blandiego.

    We have young players at those positions who can use experience. Right now Lyles isn't getting it but I have confidence that he will be back on the floor rather soon. Favors is getting better, Exum is rounding into shape. We are not getting past the 2nd round, we are unlikely to get past the 1st round. None of the options listed or available change that in the slightest.

    If I were choosing based on places I'd live:
    1. LA
    2. SF/Oakland/Berkeley
    3. Chicago

    I really like NYC, but I can't imagine living there for longer than a year or two.

    Good list. I was pleasantly surprised to see Miami not listed. I've lived there twice and it was okay, but way overrated imo .. try an hour south, though, heaven.

    Atlanta is a cool place not listed. Very under-rated.

    Seattle is my favorite out of that list, though San Francisco and NYC are really close behind. Denver is a fine city as well. I also like San Diego and Boston out of the major US cities I've been to.

    I have a strange crush on St. Louis. Everybody thinks I'm crazy for that one.

    What's the scoop on Philly? That is probably the one place no one has mentioned that surprises me. I've never been there though so maybe it's not worth mentioning.
