Wow, I didn't realize we were that low.
It doesn't mean we're bad fans

There we go.
I fkin live in Europe, do all nighters, or go to bed at 6pm, to get up at 3 am, just to watch a Cavs game, or even a good nba game.
And then you read something like that...makes you go mad

Reminds me of their 3 point shooting. Just kidding

It's probably because Allen Iverson left. They've been losing fans ever since that trade. I hope they can come back though, most philly fans are good people.

No marquee player attracting fans win or lose
Not much success or faith in Sixers franchise last 4-5yrs given numerous reasons.
Bad economy

They are all Eagle fans who jump off bridges on a yearly basis after they lose in the playoffs. But than again the Phillies made up for it

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.
