"I know there's a really big push for an NBA team. We support all those efforts. We just think right now the MLS is an opportunity."
-- Jeff Mosley
, the city of Louisville's
general counsel, on the effort to obtain its first major sports team. A group headed by former basketball star Dan Issel
is pushing for an NBA team but a possible MLS team is viewed more
favorably because of MLS's expansion mode and the success of USL champion Louisville City, which has city support -- $30 million bond -- for the construction of its own soccer stadium. (Louisville Courier Journal
