I don't think that it is much of an issue. What type of people are interested in NBA summer league? Diehard NBA/basketball fans, OSC posters, scouts, etc. It's not like these events are really geared to the general public who just want to be entertained -- this is the niche that minor league basketball needs to excite (minor league baseball has done a great job of this both the affiliated and indy leagues for that matter). For me, it is all about carving out your own niche -- promoting the team, providing a quality product, entertaining the fans, getting involved in the community...

But I agree with your point about the WBA -- they still have a lot of work to do...
