Phoenix is an interesting sports town. They like to think of themselves as avid sports fans and quickly point to the fact that they are only one of a handful of cities who have a franchise in all four major sports (stay with me on this and accept the fact that I referred to hockey as a major sport).
Looking closer though you soon realize that none of the four franchises draw particularly well. At the top of the attendance heap is probably the Phoenix Suns. They have the longest tenure in town and extended success suggests that first and foremost Phoenix is a basketball town.
