I know that we've sort of talked this issue to death on this forum, but I was curious as to what the local fans expect attendance to be like for the Pacers this year.
Obviously, it can't get much worse, and the team has poured money into PR this summer and really done, in my opinion, an excellent job trying to rehabilitate this franchise. But it does take a little bit of time for fans to really catch onto these sort of actions.
So where do you think the Pacers will rank in attendance this year? Dead last again or is it going to get better?
Personally I think it's not really inconceivable that we won't at least start out last in the league...again. The two teams right above us, Memphis and OKC, should get boosts in attendance this year. OKC, because of the move, and Memphis because of getting Mayo and pairing that with the young talent they have. So we're really going to have to compete to move up in the attendance rankings.
If we finish the year something like 22nd, that would be a huge success IMHO.
