They are all bandwagon baseball fricktards and often use the black excuse ignoring the fact blacks play football

but it points out a fallacy in the OP
I don't think we will ever see that kind of stat with the draft. success means late round pick which is very uneventful in nba drafts. I mean in terms of local support for the team. would winning a title sell out games and have people at bars talking about the pels not just the saints? it's hard to go a day ,any day not necessarily just during the season, without seeing someone in saints gear. I want that type of devotion and loyalty to the pels.
I won't be going back there anytime soon. Way too boring of a city. Although I wouldn't mind catching a Pelicans-Thunder game there.
Nevertheless, once the Pelicans establish a winning tradition they'll attract more fans and interest.
The team has had 10 years to do this.
They will never consistently sell out every game like with the Saints.
Someone is not checking their facts!
Count the teams who sell out 41 games. Which if those compete with other sports? What are you left with?
Champs and big markets.
