Re: Could a NBA team make it in Kentucky?
I think if you marketed it correctly it could have at least moderate success in drawing fans from surrounding cities and regions. It would hinge on creating fanhood and making attending the game as convenient as possible (bus shuttle service etc.) for people to attend. Look at how the Reds draw from KY, IN, and WV.
It takes a long time to forge that kind of identity towards a team, but it could be done.
Winning would be key.
