The co-founder of 8664 offers his pro-NBA testimony.

Tyler Allen at IdeaMornings: ‘Expect powerful people to launch organized, well-funded campaign against an NBA team’, by Terry Boyd (Insider Louisville)

… Allen contends anti-NBA arguments – an NBA team will hurt U of L attendance and games are too expensive – “never quite line up.”

“This is a missed opportunity. How can we afford not to go down this path?”

Allen acknowledged U of L officials’ arguments about an NBA team interfering with the men’s basketball scheduling.

Then he stated that of U of L ‘s 54 dates for various programs including men’s basketball, there are only four games – one men’s game, three women’s – scheduled for a weekend night, when the NBA typically plays.

The main argument from NBA opponents is, ” ‘Louisville’s got to do what’s right for U of L,’” Allen said.

“No. We have to do what’s right for Louisville.”
