As far as the culture, and caring more about basketball, more into the college and professional teams.

I would only put NYC and maybe LA or Chicago above Philadelphia when it comes to being a basketball city.

Between professional players and coaches that hail from Philly, The Big 5 Collegiate history and The Sixers history (althought at present they are abysmal) and the street ball culture, it is hard to find a better basketball city than Philly.

The Lakers are to basketball what the Cowboys are to football.

The most popular teams in the country.

DC fans will routinely leave or just not show up for games.

That said, when it comes from a talent standpoint, there's not many beating DC lately.

Lately maybe over time Philly may have the best starting 5 to have played and the Sixers and College history is stronger for Philly

The "lately" part of your statement deserves emphasis.
