One team in Ohio's enough for now, especially as there are plenty of other markets that make more sense, north, south, east, and west.
Cleveland is rebounding quite nicely thank you very march. There is over a billion dollars of development in the downtown core (within a 15 minute walk of the arena). I don't think its ready yet but 5-7 years down the line its possible as a destination for a relocated team
