Ya think? Seems to me when i've seen games out of Phoenix the seats are filled. Wasn't it Phoenix that started that whole "white out" business for fans? One can only hope that having Wayne behind a bench will create some interest, strengthen ticket sales and viewing in all markets.

Glendale arena's seating capacity is about 17k, last years avg for single game ticket sales were about 14.5k.
