What Would You Do for an NBA Team?

Last night, the Chicago Bulls hosted the Memphis Grizzlies at the Scottrade Center in a NBA preseason game with the Bulls dominating the Grizzlies 106-87, giving the throngs of red-clad fans what they came to see: Derrick Rose and a Bulls win. We asked a few fans what they would do for an NBA team in St. Louis. Many stuck with the "but tickets" response, but the not-great attendance -- 13,497 -- for the pre-season game, and all the out-of-town visitors we spoke to could indicate St. Louis isn't ready for an NBA franchise again (The St. Louis Hawks moved to Atlanta in 1968).
