Basketball may be the only sport you see people playing as you walk around the city of Philadelphia and it's surrounding areas. Outdoor, indoor, winter, spring, summer, and fall, people go crazy for the game of basketball.
We talk about it constantly on Sports Talk Radio, even if the professional team isn't the greatest team in the world. People gravitate to basketball talk on the radio and get excited for the draft and free agency every season.
Even if the team isn't the best ever, all fans believe that they can make the NBA Championship every year, that is the faith we have in our team.
Not only the 76ers, but College basketball is huge in Philadelphia. Philly supports the Big Five and is the best college basketball city there is in the country. It is such a big sport that all fans choose which College team they support the most, and continue that support. We study the strengths and weaknesses of theses teams and can tell you why or why not they should be in the NCAA Tournament.
When these teams are in the NCAA Tournament, the city shuts down during their games. We watch every second wishing and hoping for a little glimpse of the miraculous.
We love out teams, all six of them and we believe that they all can do something special.
This is why Philly is a basketball town .....
