Pro Skater Nyjah Huston

X Games

Should Stay in L.A.!

EXCLUSIVE

050213_nyjah_huston_launch​The X Games are bailing out of L.A. next year ... for the first time in a decade ... and pro skater Nyjah Huston tells TMZ, he really hopes organizers have a change of heart.

Long story short -- X Games couldn't agree on a new deal to keep the contest in L.A. for the 2014 event -- and are now deciding between Chicago, Detroit, Austin and Charlotte, NC.

Huston -- an X Games gold medalist who honed his skills in So Cal -- was at the Newport Film Festival for his flick "The Motivation" when he opened up about next year's big move.

Nyjah says he'll compete in the games no matter where they end up -- but there are 2 cities he thinks would make good replacements.

At least in Charlotte they won't get shot at or murdered. Who will seriously travel to Detroit or Chicago to watch the x games? Too expensive to stay and way too dangerous. Detroit doesn't have enough security to protect its own people let alone thousands more, they need to protect their own citizens first.

Detroit would be an amazing choice for the x-game! Things have really started to turn around here and we have TONS of space to cater to the x-games. Once people come to the D they fall in love!!
