You seem to be one of those guys who look at barebones "facts" as you call them and are unable to put them in context or link them to other facts.
Yes, this is a tough NBA market. Always has been (there were even some issues with the Jazz). But it has been demonstrated that a successful, competitive team will put sufficient numbers of fans in the seats. I would suggest you do a more thorough analysis of attendance around the league and focus on particular markets and venues. Simply "ranking" in raw numbers doesn't really tell you the whole story.
And for the first time in franchise history, it has an owner with solid financials that knows this market. This isn't just a one or two year process. It's going to take time. That's not making excuses or avoiding the issue. It's grown up reality.
