That could be a long, flat section to the court, which would suck for the floor seats that aren't courtside.
As for SW Basketball, they do seem to work on the cheap but they also seem to have decent plans for sustainability if they don't sell whatever team they are operating. Rent was pretty high in Fort Worth from what I remember; we can only guess what Reno wants.
Austin looks pretty fan friendly though, not to many if any bad seats along with the basketball court for the kids in the corner...... I think that is the main factor....
One thing's for sure: if the showcase is ever in Reno, I'm going.
