The buzz of the upcoming NBA season is in the air, and fans are gearing up to cheer on their favorite teams. But which teams have truly captivated their audience online and in the stadiums? We embarked on a mission to find out.
The Genesis of the Fan Engagement Score
In the age of digital connection, simply counting game attendance or tallying up social media followers doesn’t give the full picture of fan engagement. We introduced the “Fan Engagement Score” – a metric that melds social media engagement with physical game attendance, painting a holistic portrait of a team’s relationship with its fans.
This score combines two essential facets of fan interaction. First, we analyzed each team’s social media engagement rates across various platforms, giving weight to the number of followers. This provides insight into the digital rapport teams have cultivated.
Next, we factored in the game attendance data, focusing on home and away game capacities.
By seamlessly integrating these elements, the Fan Engagement Score offers a holistic perspective on a team’s success in engaging its fanbase online and in the arena.
The Leaders of the Pack
The results were both intriguing and insightful:
- The Atlanta Hawks soared to the top, showcasing an impressive balance between their digital presence and stadium attendance.
- Not far behind, the Dallas Mavericks and Utah Jazz demonstrated their prowess in connecting with their fan base.
- Teams like the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers also made their mark, revealing interesting dynamics regarding traditional fan loyalty and digital interaction.

The Modern NBA Landscape
As our founder, Daniel Barker, aptly puts it, “The modern NBA landscape is a fusion of traditional fan spirit and the ever-growing digital footprint of teams. This analysis underscores the essence of this relationship, setting the stage for an exciting season ahead.”
While rankings provide a snapshot, the real story lies in the evolution of fan engagement. The digital realm offers teams many opportunities to connect, engage, and grow their fanbase, and it’s clear that the most successful teams are those that strike a balance between the virtual and real worlds.
As the 2023 NBA season inches closer, these insights are more than just numbers. They offer teams a roadmap to enhance their fan engagement strategies, spotlight areas of improvement, and celebrate successes. For fans, it’s a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes dynamics of their favorite teams, adding another layer to their fandom.
