NBA revenue info (numbers down league wide)

Quote:
Average paid attendance is down 3.7 percent in the NBA through the first quarter of the regular season, sending gate receipts plummeting 7.4 percent, according to league documents obtained by CBSSports.com.

Net gate receipts, the money teams make from ticket sales, fell to an average of $828,985 per game, down from $894,823 at the same point last season. Only nine teams were up or flat in average net gate receipts through Nov. 29, while 21 teams saw a decline.

The numbers are important because they reflect how even teams with relatively healthy paid attendance – such as the Mavericks, who are averaging 15,373 – are suffering due to pricing pressure from the recession. Dallas’ paid attendance is down 8.2 percent, but its gate receipts are down 15.9 percent.
Quote:
The hardest-hit franchise so far is the Detroit Pistons, whose net average gate receipts are down a staggering 42.8 percent year-over-year, according to the figures reported by teams to the league office. The Pistons made an average of $537,263 per game on ticket sales through their first eight home games, down from $938,833 at the same point last season. The Pistons, located in the epicenter of joblessness, have seen paid attendance slip 22 percent, to 14,821 from 18,993 in the first month of 2008-09.

The other teams suffering the most at the gate are the Sacramento Kings (average gate receipts down 36.2 percent), Minnesota Timberwolves (down 24.4 percent), Phoenix Suns (down 23.8 percent), Los Angeles Clippers (down 23.3 percent), Milwaukee Bucks (down 23.2 percent), and Golden State Warriors (down 22.3 percent). Clearly, the Suns’ bottom line has not benefited from the team’s 15-7 start, nor have the Bucks been able to translate excitement over rookie point guard Brandon Jennings into ticket revenue.
Quote:
Cleveland: 18,157, up 10.4 percent
Portland: 17,714, down 0.5 percent
New York: 17,523, up 4.2 percent
Boston: 17,067, up 0.8 percent
Bulls: 16,272, down 2.4 percent

The five worst:

Memphis: 6,879, up 6.8 percent
Sacramento: 7,606, down 21.1 percent
Milwaukee: 8,331, down 26.7 percent
Philadelphia: 8,701, down 16.4 percent
Charlotte: 8,969, up 4.7 percent

NBA ticket revenue slides 7.4 percent (UPDATE) - CBSSports.com

As of sunday we were just over averaging 17,000 per game so i wonder why we're not in the top 5? Mind you that's down from the 18,000+ from last season.

I couldn't believe the pathetic crowd in Millwuakee during the last raptor game. Truly, truly dismal. We all saw how sparse the crowd was in the lower bowl, but there were a couple of camera angles where you could see the upper deck of the arena and there were seriously only a handful of people peppered among the empty seats.

It looked dire.

Also, i was listening to the gameplan on the FAN recently and Jack was talking about the failing numbers in Philadelphia. He said something along the lines of how the 76ers are now an afterthought in the Philly sports scene. I found this really weird. I mean I always just assumed that the 76ers were widely loved in the city. Afterall, it's the sixers... Dr.J, Barkley, Iverson, etc. Even when the Flyers weren't doing so well, the arena always looked packed.

It's kind of ironic because i clearly remember when we played the sixers in that 2nd round, during game 7 a philly fan was holding up a (respectful) sign that said something like "Toronto: not just a hockey town anymore". Damn, it looks like Philly isn't a basketball town anymore.

It is a basketball town, but the economy and a crappy team doesn't help. This reminds me of Chicago, which was a pretty good Hockey city but for a dozen years after the old Chicago stadium was closed and they moved, that team couldn't draw fly's because the team stunk. Now the BlackHawks are an exciting young team on the rise and the fans are back.

Sixer fans didn't have big expectations and with money being tight, tickets weren't bought

Philly baseball and football always sell out though

they might be spending money more wisely on contenders (Rocky reference)

I hear a lot about the economy, and i can understand that being a viable excuse in cities like Detroit or New Orleans... but Philadelphia? that to me is a big time sports city. and the fans have neglected the sixers big time for a few years now.

I'd say Toronto is more of a basketball town than they are.
