Sports teams enjoy an intense amount of popularity in Pittsburgh.
The Steelers hold more Super Bowl victories than any other franchise, the Penguins enjoy the highest TV ratings for any NHL team since 2000 and the Pirates are experiencing a surge in popularity following their first winning season in 21 years.
Even college teams like the Pitt Panthers or the Duquesne Dukes hold strong followings.
So why doesn’t Pittsburgh, with its avid sports fans, have a major league basketball team? And will we ever get one?
