    Well this is the first year they've sold out you can argue they've sucked.

    Dallas, like most sports markets, isn't going to support a team that isn't winning. There are a very few notable exceptions to that rule.

    Cubs and Bears are definitely bigger than the Bulls, but that shouldn't take anything away from how crazy the Bulls support is here. Just because the Bulls are part of the 3rd most popular sport in the country shouldn't be any reason to discredit the fan support because of that. It's similar to Boston in the sense that the other two will always be bigger because of tradition and popularity of the sport, but the Bruins and Celtics are popular too. Same goes for the Hawks and Bulls. It's what makes great sports towns great.

    Plenty are. The thing about the Rockets lower bowl is that a lot of those seats (the ones that are bought/given) are empty because they're corporate seats, especially the club ones. The Rockets are always usually in the middle of the pack around attendance in terms of tickets sold every season, and even though the lower bowl is sometimes empty, they aren't close to being the worst in the NBA in terms of empty seats.

    How r****ded is it that the Warrior's aren't up there?

    On a scale of 1 to 10 that's a 10 on the tard scale.

    international fan base wise we are probably the top 5, but home fan base we are pitiful. its like everyone forgot about the rockets who are the only major sports team to bring us a ring. (not dissing other houston sports teams) i have and still see places playing other games in the NBA over ours on game night. very disappointing. this comcast **** has to get fixed, because people are starting to notice the rockets once again. i heard the announcement on the radio commercial thing addressing houston sports not being available on TV for many houstonians. hopefully that will help, but people seem to be more interested in the texans as of late, but i will always be a rocket man!
