Maybe, maybe not. In two years' time (which, btw, there is zero chance that the arena will be ready in only two years), the new team smell will be off and their initial window of opportunity to make money during the honeymoon period will be replaced with the expectations for being competitive in order to rake in the buck.

It's effectively throwing away the free cash period of a franchise's existence.
