It’s nice to see that the Pegula’s are committed to bringing a championship to Western New York, but I can tell you that it won’t be the Bills, and it definitely will not be the Sabres. So where does that leave the city of Buffalo? Terry and Kim, if you ever read this, you need to bring an NBA franchise to Buffalo. I have been saying it for years and I will continue to preach the word of the Wolf’s Den.
Why an NBA franchise? People will pay to watch LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Steph Curry, and Anthony Davis. A co worker brought up a great point. You put Sydney Crosby in the state of Texas and not many people will recognize who he is. You put LBJ in any state and he is mobbed. Look at the tv ratings. The NBA trumps the NHL in everyday that ends with a y. The NFL may have the ratings, but look at this past Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. Tickets were going for $1 on stub hub. That would never be the case if LeBron James, or even Jeremy Lin was coming to Buffalo. The Chinese students from UB would flock to Key Bank Arena to watch the Nets.
Will an NBA franchise in Buffalo bring home a title first? Possibly, but if anything it will draw a crowd. Bring an NBA franchise to Buffalo!
