LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer and about 100 local businesses and civil leaders are in Oklahoma City examining how the city revitalized its' downtown.

While the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder is not on the agenda, it is being talked about in nearly every meeting.

The Thunder are the cornerstone to Oklahoma City's downtown revenue source. Oklahoma City is the model for bringing an NBA team to a middle market city.

However, a spokesman for the mayor says this is just an annual trip sponsored by greater Louisville Inc. and the chamber of commerce.
