Not singlehandedly but he has played a very big role in the teams success. Actually without him they wouldn't have a team anymore. They'd be in KC at the Sprint Center and there would have been no CEC. His rookie season and the attention it drew in the city was a major reason Don Barden had to agree to fund a portion of the arena after his group won the casino rights over the Penguins partner, Isle of Capri. The CEC is literally the house that Sid built.
