More combined teams in the four major NA pro sports-- California or NY state?

I don't feel like looking it up.

Also, if you feel like it, I'm curious as to which state has had more teams between them (that would include active and defunct franchises).

Active AND defunct? Don't feel like looking that up. Was gonna say Florida might have a shot at being second, but you said defunct..

^Forgot the Sabres

But if you're just counting non-defunct teams:

New York Knicks
Brooklyn Nets
New York Giants
New York Jets
Buffalo Bills
New York Mets
New York Yankees
New York Islanders
New York Rangers
Buffalo Sabres

Do you count the Devils too? Seems like if you count the Giants and Jets, you have to count the Devils too, since they all play in NJ

Not changing this sig until the Knicks win the NBA Championship! Started...4/23/2011? Or was it 2010?

No, I was saying, I made this topic for active teams, but if anyone feels like looking up active and defunct franchises, I'm curious about that, too.

I agree with Zero including the NJ teams, Devils should be added to the list.

But they're the New Jersey Devils, not the New York Devils. I personally wouldn't include them, but I can't tell anyone else that they're wrong for doing so.
