    I was checkin the New York NBA players thread, and this got me wonderin what CITY has produced the best basketball players. I'm guessin its prollysomewhere in the DC/VA area but cant sleep on Seattle

    Brandon Roy
    Jason Terry
    Nate Robinson
    Jamal Crawford
    Martell Webster
    Aaron Brooks
    Marvin Williams (bremerton?)
    John Brockman
    Spencer Hawes


    What city has the best current NBA players? Past?

    edit: and no, just cuz someone went to a high school in the area for a year or two doesnt count. aka brandon jennings in oak hill. i know oak hill has the mostnba players out of any hs.

    In terms of an actual city...it's hands down Seattle. DC/MD/VA is a large area.

    Seattle is a hot bed right now. Chicago has always been high on the list. Los Angeles area too. Can't forget them

    Also, DMV doesn't typically mean ALL of VA....Northern VA is completely different than the 7 cities area further south.

    How bout Oakland?

    Baron
    Kidd
    GP
    Paul Pierce
    Drew Gooden

    Paul Silas

    If we're talking the whole state of California:
    Baron Davis
    Tyson Chandler
    Reggie Miller
    Gilbert Arenas
    Ray Allen
    Kevin Johnson

    I think Chi-Town is killing it though

    Same thing with Baltimore...

    I could never group Melo in with KD or Beasley because DC and B-More are two totally different areas.

    I hate when folks try to group B-More with the DC Area. Folks not from here don't understand and say, "Baltimore is closer than some parts of NorthernVA."
