Default Least popular NBA team?

What do you think is the least popular NBA team?

I don't simply mean attendance-wise, but in general, nationwide or even worldwide, which NBA team is least popular?

Some of the teams with the lowest home average attendance:
Pacers, Kings, Nets, Grizzlies, Hornets, 76ers, Timberwolves, Bucks, Hawks, Bobcats, Rockets

The heat are currently the least popular team in the NBA. Everyone hates them.

Bobcats. Until they make their first decent playoff run I don't see them becoming popular anytime soon.

Probably Charlotte. The team has no real direction, their prospects look questionable and they lack any clear cut star and leader now that Gerald Wallace is gone. A lot of the fanbase has lost faith in the management, it seems (and you can't necessarily blame them as of late). Even when Wallace/Jackson were there and they made the playoffs it still didn't seem like that did much to bolster team popularity. With that said, I always enjoyed watching that scrappy Charlotte team play.

As much of a bottom feeder as Toronto is they still have a pretty solid fanbase up there. Not too many fans here in the states, but they have a loyal group of supporters. Same goes for the Kings.
