really? the Penguins aren't having any trouble right now with Crosby, Malkin, Letang and the current core. As long as those guys are still wearing black and gold, it's going to be mighty hard bringing a basketball team in and having to compete with a successful Penguins team with an already established fan base.
the NBA isn't exactly thriving right now in terms of popularity either. i wouldn't even think about it for another 10-15 years if the Penguins are in the dumps again.
