Landing a team here might draw a few crowds from Seattle, but not that many, travel is still harsh. 2, 3 hours drive.
we just don't have the fan base for basketball to survive, unless they can sell the tickets at a lowered price, and maybe even packages to highschool groups on the weekends, to attract new fan base.
a problem with basketball fans is that, we all probably already have a home team already of another city. sure, having a team here is great and all, but the team HAS to have someone that we WANT to go and see.
a problem with the grizzlies was that they simply couldn't win, and didn't have a performer who attracted fans for a losing team . ie. #8 for Captitals, #87 for Penguins (two years ago)
Not that we have to have someone like King James, but surely it would help us sell out everynight.
