Re: So how come...
Pittsburgh isn't a huge Basketball City.
Football and Baseball have always been the Kings of the Town and over the last twenty plus years football(The Steelers)have ruled the roost.
Football at any level has always been huge in Western Pa. and it probably always will be.
Plus I don't think there's enough money in the Pittsburgh economy to successfully support four major league franchises.
I wouldn't be surprised if the Pirates end up closing up shop in the near future and move to another city.
