This promises to be extremely interesting.

Louisville-based businessman Tyler Allen, is scheduled to speak on bringing a National Basketball Association team to Louisville at the IdeaMornings meeting this Fri., Nov. 30 at the iHub.

From the IdeaMornings synopsis:

Tyler Allen is a Louisville businessman, owner of USA Image Technologies, Inc. and co-founder of the 8664 movement. Tyler will be talking about the benefits – intangible included – of bringing an NBA team to Kentucky. There has been a lot of recent discussion on this topic and we look forward to hosting this event and hearing more ideas from the community.

Meanwhile, there’s a whole slate of NBA (and ABA) themed activities at Bearno’s by the Bridge, as reported (again) by Insider Louisville.

NBA2Lou: Bring the NBA to Louisville Facebook group hosting panel panel discussion Friday at Bearno’s by the Bridge

Think there’s no mass enthusiasm/momentum for bringing pro sports to Louisville?

We know different.

Every time Insider Louisville has an NBA-related post, the IL web traffic disco ball always spins.

So here we go again.

Friday evening, the Bring the NBA to Louisville Facebook group is hosting an event.

The question is, will Metro Mayor Greg Fischer and Louisville businessman Junior Bridgeman, the two most crucial NBA-to-Louisville boosters, attend?

Find out at Bearno’s by the Bridge at 131 W. Main St., right next to the KFC Yum! Center at the corner of Second and Main Streets.
