they probably make a shitload on corporate boxes and merchandise. And the average ticket prices must be top 5-10. Not sure how those are shared with the rest of the league though.
Actually, our local TV ratings are usually pretty good. If i remember correctly in 2010 we were 5th in the league in local TV ratings in the NBA. Not sure now, but i'd say we're top 10. What kills us is the rest of the country, which to be completely honest i don't give two shits about.
