Not to nitpick but there's no NBA team in Pittsburgh, and last I heard there was still no NFL team in LA
1-2 years ago someone got all the population numbers (the question was "who could support another team?") and while the analysis wasn't complete, more pro teams in an area definitely hurts that area's ability to support an extra team. It's not the only factor, of course.
