If our team is good, players will want to come, if it isnt, then they wont want to play here. Every1 wanted to play in Cleveland because they had LeBron, not because Cleveland was a good city to live in or watever. Nobody is gonna want to play for Cleveland now that they are in the bottom of the standings.
youre partially right because if players had a choice between two relatively equally good teams to play on with identical contracts, theyd pick the more favoured city, for example L.A vs Boston, imo most players will choose L.A. this is why, even if we get good, itll be hard to draw in players compared to different cities since were "canadian and ride polar bears"
