None of these applies to OKC.

I'd pick a city who's never really had success before, or in a long time.

Atlanta is a pretty popular city, who's made the second round twice in the past 40 years.

At that age especially, I'd be looking to win a ring. It's a fair chance I'm just coming off the rookie contract at that age, so it's not like you can really get max max money anyway, and if I'm top 20 I'm going to be getting a pretty sweet contract offer anywhere I go most likely. If we're only talking a couple of million dollars between contracts, then definitely go to the team that has more chance of winning with me on the team.

Unless you're talking about where a championship contending team offer you like the MLE and another max, then at that age I'd probably take money. I'd want to be getting paid what my talents are worth

I think my determination and will....I would probably play in LA, Miami or NYC. I know living out in the East must suck because people are rude and the weather is horrible.

I know that no matter what I do, I would probably be the next Kobe or King of New York.

Look at the Linsanity crap. Imagine if I blew it up like home boy. They would eat it up and love me for it.

me? i'd go for the best chance to win a ring. even the lowest salary in the NBA is already big money for me. plus, as a top 20 player, money would come in from other sources like endorsements. i've never been outside my lousy 3rd world country, so anywhere in the US is like paradise for me.

Take the money. Gain the peace of mind that comes with financial security. Work my ass off in the gym 24/7. Become the best player in the game. Win ring. Profit. Repeat.

There should be a 4th option: Chance to showcase game most (ie be the man on your own team etc). Many young players go for this.
