7. The fans will come back
The basic premise of "Did people miss the NBA?" stories run by every major news outlet is a flawed one. People who like NBA basketball missed it, while people who do not couldn't care less that the league is back. Only 35-percent of people care that the lockout is over, according to some polls, but how many people care about the sport normally? There may be some fans who take a stand, but they'll be replaced in the stands by people looking for a fun night out. At least in Boston, the fans will come back.
