BucksNation not sold yet... attendance at all-time BC low


The Bucks probably need to produce a winning record pretty fast. At the moment BucksNation, or at least the periphery of BucksNation, is not yet sold on ScottyBall. Enthusiasm for the team seems a bit low.

If you look at this chart I did (WARNING: you might not want to click on it... you get a bunch of Corel Photo crap... eventually the graph comes up though, if you're interested... sorry about that, I just grabbed the quickest graph program available) of the Bucks NBA attendance rankings in each of the 21 seasons they've played at the Bradley Center (with 1988-89 being season 1 and, of course, this season being season 21), you will see that attendance for Milwaukee Bucks games so far this season has hit its lowest NBA ranking (27th out of 30) since the Bucks moved into the Bradley Center twenty one seasons ago.

What the chart basically shows is when BucksNation is enthused, it can produce top ten attendance rankings. When its unimpressed, as it seems to have been over the last several campaigns, it will produce attendance rankings in the bottom 10. And this season, so far, attendance has hit the lowest of the low. That's disconcerting. But hopefully, as the schedule turns in the Bucks favor, the fans enthusiasm will build and attendance will swell.

Otherwise, if the present downward attendance trend continues, I don't see how the Bucks remain viable in Milwaukee. But, of course, its a two-way street. A good product usually produces good results at the gate. And I think the Bucks are headed in the right direction as far as that goes, so I'm cautiously optimistic things will change for the better.

ALERT: Possible Error: An astute reader has alerted me to the fact that ESPN's attendance numbers for this season do not jibe with the ones I used for my chart. My source was basketball-reference.com. In this case I would be quite happy to be wrong. Either way, though, the chart for the preceding years shows that the attendance trend since the mid-90s has been downward with the exception of the tiny "championship window" that opened and closed in the early Millenium years. We need to move back in that direction to get fans energized again, and I think we are. But thank you to the reader for correcting me.

Bad news (or good news)

Your numbers appear to be wrong.

ESPN has great sortable stats, and under every metric I could analyze I couldn't get them to equal 27th in attendance. Things were better.

http://beta.espn.go.com/nba/attendance

Also, there are some important things to consider. Yes the Celtics and Cavs have come to town, but other than that it's been a lot of BLAH teams.

Yes, it hasn't been crowded, but I think the tide is turning (which your numbers have shown). More home games should get more people in seats.

Item of concern at this point? How much people are paying to be in those seats, not a lot. But that's okay. The Brewers built a winning program under Doug Melvin and that sold seats for more and more each year. Hopefully the same can happen for the Bucks (with the exception of my seats, which should be locked in at their super row late for life).
