i just don't see how basketball could be at risk in Toronto.
big city, promising team, a country that's still kind off getting exposed to basketball and just had a superstar (Nash) which usually means a boom in popularity among younger generation, natural rivalries with good teams in the Lakes regions.
to me, the fanbase can only go up.
idk what happened with baseball as i don't care about baseball.
i suppose baseball will have harder time anywhere with it being almost purely American sport right now and lacking any national rivalries. kind of like NFL. not to mention the uneven field among teams.
but that's just a guess from someone who's mostly ignorant about that sport.
i don't see how NBA could fail in Toronto though, lockout or no lockout.
