I'm sure Ed Snider and Comcast are happy they found some dumb shmucks to buy the Sixers off them while still paying rent at the WFC.
Not really. Comcast Spectacor put in a bid less than a year ago to try and buy the Sacramento Kings and move them down here to Virginia Beach. It fell through in part because the city nixed a tax funded arena deal. There's still a ton of money to be made in the right market for the NBA. This area is a huge basketball market at the lower levels and is just dying for a pro team.
