I loathe the NBA as much as anyone, but people thinking the Sixers will move from Philly are just delusional. As has been repeatedly pointed out, Philly is the 4th/5th largest media market in the U.S. Losing that would be a big blow to the NBA.

Let's not forget that the 2000 run to the Finals was huge in Philly. When Pat Croce was running the show, people flocked to the games. Even I watched Sixers games back then. When the Sixers aren't a laughingstock, this is a great basketball town. It's just that they've been so incompetently run over the past decade+ that people see no reason to support them.
