Wac Center in top 5 B-Ball arenas

This is an old story, but I thought it would be interesting to consider the fan experience on the eve of the season opener. In a ranking of NBA arenas, based on a survey listed in USA Today, Philly ranked 3rd. The survey ranked the seat, parking, fans, entertainment, and concessions;

The top 5; Denver (4.16), Indiana (4.14), Philadelphia (4.14), Phoenix (4.11), Detroit (4.05). The seat was the most heavily weighted factor, but in the fan category Philly was ranked superior for Fan enthusiasm and basketball IQ. As a season ticket holder, I am not surprised. But outside of the Wac Center, Philly's rep clouds our image.

Keep in mind that this is a USA today ranking. The paper that regularly attempts to peddle surveys as journalistic content. Complete Survey
