The NBA is a losing proposition. 17 out of 30 teams are in the red. Half the league plays to less than 90% capacity - 4 at less than 80%. The game is boring compared to the college. Ticket prices are ridiculous.
UC's support is awful finishing 13th in the league behind even DePaul and Seton Hall. What would an NBA team do to Xavier and UC crowds? Cincinnati should consider themselves lucky they aren't encumbered with a money losing franchise ready to skip town leaving behind a mountain of debt.
My apologies if my feelings about a bunch of chest thumping meatheads colors my opinion.
