Is ATL a great sports destination? No, but I really don't think it's as bad as the portrait you're painting it out to be in my humble opinion.
They have 60% of the arena filled when they are great. The only time Atlanta supports pro teams is in the playoffs. It's a terrible market with terrible fans. I've been saying this for years. It is what it is. It's an anomaly, for sure. They don't deserve any of the teams they have, really.
