Maybe people are extending their boycott of the NFL.

Umm, I don't this is news, but the Pistons have been bad AND boring to watch for nearly an entire decade now. It takes most fans more than a few weeks to figure out if this team is actually any good. But even then, it's notable that attendance is actually UP by a sizable percentage this year. Winning IS bringing in more fans.

Detroit has the worst attendance of any team since 2012. The attendance is been historically bad at times. And I can't really blame fans for it. The product on the court has been horrendous. Their best year since fans realized the team was garbage was 15-16, which not surprisingly corresponded with the team's best record since 2008. Of course, that record was still a paltry 44-38, and realistically provided no great expectations going forward.

Keep winning, especially against good teams, and the fans will come. They've already started (as I mentioned, attendance is up overall in spite of the new arena actually having fewer total seats). That's always been the case here.

The Pistons this year are actually selling more tickets this year than last.
