That being said, most of the other big cities will get behind whichever of the NBA or NHL team is doing better, Boston and Chicago being perfect examples. However, New York is much more slanted towards basketball than hockey. Granted if the Rangers made a deep run, things would pick up a little bit, but they have been good for years while the Knicks just won their first playoff series in forever this year, yet the Knicks are much, much more popular. It's kinda similar to LA - people will jump on the bandwagon, but for whatever reason hockey is not viewed as "equal" to the other main sports, and it pisses me off.
