Also consider the teams who have come into the ACC so far this year...Pacers (2), cavs, nets, T'wolves, kings...hardly draws. The pacers are a good team but there aren't any ticket sellers on that team. You could make a case for the T'wolves but Rubio isn't there yet I don't think and love will never be the type to draw the fair weather fan.

When the lakers and heats of the league start coming around you'll start to see some sellouts. 16,000 per for a shit team playing boring teams is pretty damn good. This is one of the best fan bases in the nba.
