He does have a point though.

I mean, exposure is key for various reasons and it's why having Vince Carter here was so huge. How many basketball fans did he create? Even if they were just VC fans they were still following this team.

In a market, where hockey is king, bordering on irrelevancy is dangerous.

I get we're in a rebuild, but really, in the sports landscape and even in the basketball landscape we're really nowhere. In a basketball standpoint, we're already having trouble recruiting FA's to sign here. Why make it more harder?
