Uh Oh: What World Class Metropolis Is He Forgetting?

From a story in the Oct. 26 New York Times Magazine, quoting NBA Commissioner David Stern on the extension of the league's franchise to such tank towns as Oklahoma City:
He remains adamant that N.B.A. franchises must remain in the nation’s largest cities. He ticks them off: “Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles. . . If I’ve forgotten one, I don’t mean to. The Top 10.”

"If I’ve forgotten one, I don’t mean to."

Heh. God forbid he should forget to mention smaller-than-El-Paso Boston.
