Once Lakers falls face down this year, you'll see a half empty Staples Center with people arriving late and leaving early, same with the other LA teams.
Yeah, you may be right, the only two towns I truly know what's happening in are Denver and Miami. It just seems like Atlanta doesn't care too much about any of its teams while Los Angeles at least comes out for the Dodgers, Lakers, and Kings. Will the Lakers really suffer this season at the gate? I know Miami is absolutely crazy right now about Shaq and the Heat. They've done the impossible and taken the Dolphins out of the spotlight, although Ricky Williams, Dave Wannestedt, Rick Spielman, Jay Fiedler, and Wayne Huizenga have helped make the 'Phins unpopular for the first time in forever.
