Same here. I'd love to be attending NBA games, but I don't live in the US

But overall I agree with GOBB. Philadelphia has been a very mediocre team for the last 7-8 years, not being good enough to contend for more than a 1st round exit, and not being bad enough to land a top draft pick (although the team has had great picks, but none with the hype of a 1~3 pick).

And probably also when Iverson, who was the charisma of the team for a decade, left town many people lost interest.
