WICHITA, Kansas - NBA basketball made its return to Wichita Wednesday with the Oklahoma City Thunder playing the Chicago Bulls in a preseason matchup, drawing a capacity crowd to Intrust Bank Arena and plenty of excitement.
"I look forward to them coming here, and I hope they open it up and do it more often," Donald Turnetine, a basketball fan, said as he waited to get in to the arena.
The arena has had six sold-out events this year including Wednesday's game, matching its all-time high. That had businesses near the arena excited for the opportunity to make more money.
"I think it brings a lot of people to us that don't normally come to Old Town, a lot more families and a different kind of demographic than what you see here on a consistent basis," Keith Chavey, of River City Brewing Co, said.
Before the game, fans got a chance to shoot hoops, play in the bounce house, get their face painted, and get pumped up for the game.
"'I'd like to see it more often, honestly," Troy Resko said. "We should get a team here, even though we're not a big enough city, we should."
