Take a look @ the ratings for the Blue Jays. They were impressive.

Also, this news of basketball not being in Toronto for another 10 years is news to me....basketball seems to be pretty popular amongst the 13-20 y.o. demographic.

Take a look @ merchandise sales and even video game sales for nba 2k11.
