Denver's sports hierarchy is 1. Broncos 2. Rockies 3. Avs 4. Nuggets. (The Broncos are a landslide No. 1, the Rox and Avs are interchangeable at 2 and 3, depending on who's better at the moment, and the Nuggets are solidly fourth).
It hasn't changed. I don't hear anything on the radio or see anything on TV about the lockout (other than on ESPN). Hardly anyone here in Colorado is talking about it. Of course, I don't live in Denver so the talk could be rampant up there but I highly doubt it.
This area isn't a big basketball territory anyway so it's probably not a fair region to compare. College hoops doesn't generate much discussion either.
