Ha! I know, right?

Actually my Knicks fandom predates ALL my sports team fandoms...even FSU...

Became a Knock fan in 1987...we had a scrappy, but not so good team that (somehow) made the playoffs...

Didn't become a Nole until '88...

Born and lived in Johnstown PA until I was 12..then moved out into the boondocks of Western PA where I consider myself to have been raised...

Not really a Mecca for hoops those parts...

An Orlando fan since before they tipped off for the first time, I'm really thinking about giving them up.

But do I root for the home team?

Pick a player and root for them? Not sure which way to go. If this is the way, those two methods would probably land on the same result.

I have no real tie to Orlando. Started off on a whim, I kept it up for 30 years. But that ****ing team... they might be more soul sucking than the other two I root for, and that says a lot.

You can use a various set of criteria:

History:

Lakers/Celtics are the most consistent powers over time.
Spurs have been consistent since the 90s, but have fallen off.

Contenders:
Warriors are the best right now.
Rockets play a fun brand of basketball.
76ers are on the rise.
Raptors have Kawhi now and doesn't have to go through LeBron.

Good Teams, but not really contenders:
OKC has Westbrook/Paul.
Bucks have the greek freak.
Nuggets are a good team with no superstars.

Not a chance in hell any team wins except the Warriors. This is the most anticlimactic season since Jordan’s Bulls.

I started getting back in to the NBA a little when in Houston. Went to a few games. Saw the Westbrook / Hardin battle.

Really never liked the Lakers.

Now I'm conflicted ... watching Ball suffer is fun, yet I'm still not in the Lebron camp.

Help me

No trade



The Minnesota Timberwolves and Miami Heat advanced to the brink of a blockbuster trade for All-Star forward Jimmy Butler over the weekend -- only for the deal to fracture before completion, league sources told ESPN.

When the 3rd best scorer can do that, how do you beat them?

lmao I remember thinking this comment from Tristan Thompson was one of the dumbest, least self-aware comments I'd heard in a while back in september when I read it:

http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/24815653/tristan-thompson-sees-lebron-less-cavs-team-beat-east

The Cleveland Cavaliers may not have LeBron James this season, but Tristan Thompson says they remain the team to beat in the Eastern Conference.

"We're still four-time Eastern Conference champions, so until you take us down from that, teams ain't got much to say. Boston, Philly, they ain't got much to say," Thompson told reporters on Thursday. "Boston had homecourt Game 7 and lost. Philly, you guys almost got swept. Toronto -- we already know that story. So until someone takes us down, there's not much they can really say."


lol. dude. you lost lebron. you're not even remotely the same team wtf are you smoking

now today:
