For evidence, look no further than the way the Lakers have been supported even when their teams were horrible. If you think about it, LeBron helped attract attendees and viewers to home and road games involving the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Lakers were going to get those fans, anyway. That could certainly be a factor.
