However, those are purchased seats, if you were to count how many are ACTUALLY @ the game, I'm sure the Raptors numbers are significantly down (there were a lot of empty seats during the Minnesota/Sacramento games).

Also, popularity/attendance is a hilarious article. It basically shows that the exterior of the league (the strong centres of the league) are doing well and healthy (also, take into account size of the arenas to figure out attendance). However, when I watch games in the other locations, e.g. Charlotte, there's a definite problem that the league is turning a blind eye to and bull shit journalism like this, does nothing but trump up the league instead of examining why, the game today, has issues that could hamper it 10 sooner rather than later.
