PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Philadelphia 76ers are generating a real buzz around the Delaware Valley and across the NBA, and their ticket sales are beginning to reflect their winning record.

It all starts with winning, and the Sixers are doing that frequently this season (see Monday evening game story).  Stir in some enticements such as cheap tickets and “dollar dog” nights and you have a recipe for success for the new owners.

“Clearly, Philadelphia  is noticing that it’s fun to be at a Sixers game, and it’s more than fun to watch this team play,” 76ers’ co-owner and CEO Adam Aron tells KYW Newsradio.  “We’ve already sold more tickets to Sixers games this year, for 32 games, than the Sixers sold all of last season as reported at the end of the season in May, for a comparable number of games.”

While their attendance numbers are up, the Sixers still have a long way to go to reach the elites. They’re average attendance of a little more than 14,700 per game ranks just 23rd in the NBA.
