Which NBA Team Do You Support and Why?

Just wondering which NBA team everyone goes for on here. I don't really follow one individula team but still take a large interest and follow Bogut and now Jawai aswell. Who do you support and why?

Phoenix - Love Amare and Nash. I also follow individuals from other teams though.

Hornets. As a 9-year-old I fell in love with my t-shirt with the Hornet busting out the front, and his tail on the back, and the teal-and-purple colour scheme. A victory for marketing I guess! Plus, Larry Johnson and Alonzo Mourning were pretty cool...

Started following b-ball back in 90. Didn't want to be another MJ fan so picked the second best scorer, Malone. Then loved Stockton because of his ability to dominate the assists each season.
So the Jazz will always be number 1.

I also have family in NY and went to a knicks game in 99 so i support them in the east.

Pacers, loved watching Reggie knock down j's and trash talk. Particularly the Spike Lee trash talk.

Hasn't been much joy of late.

"reggie for president" - you must have been spewing when your team drafted Jawai and then traded him!

You're not wrong! It amazes how often "professional sport administrators" show that they just don't have a clue.

The Clippers.

Started following them in 93-94 when the great Loy Vaught was still playing. Plenty of lean years but still support them.

New York Knicks

Fasinated with New York before I fell in love with the game. It's the Mecca and always a big city for sports.

Loved Ewing, Starks, Oakley, Mason etc.

Been a Knicks fan since even in these crappy times.

However I've admired teams over the years and love players from each team.

Eg- 2004 Pistons Championship team
Eg- T-Mac

Love the Jazz. Although i was young when they were playing the combo of Stockton and Malone was fascinating and i loved playing as them in video games. I remember the mailman scoring 146 pts for me in one match =)

Wolves - Started following them when i had a passing interest in ball cause they had this big, kinda slow red head on their team, who was a Perth boy. When I finally became serious about ball i just stayed with them - i was following them well before they blundered into KG (i can remember watching the draft results on ST back in '95 and thinking "#### you McHale - you drafted a highschooler BRAVO!!! As if Donyell Marshall wasn't bad enough..." - claps slowly...

Well that turned out alright... By alright i mean solid mediocracty...

Boston - followed them since 1981 when they showed the Finals against Houston on free to air TV. The games were on at 2am & as a kid I'd tape them all & watch them the next day. Became a massive Larry Bird fan from that moment on. So have followed them through Really Good, then Bad, then Really Really Bad, now finally Really Good again. Hated the Lakers then & still do now... maybe moreso with Kobe there!

Mavericks... followed them since before they signed the three j's... c'mon they had a guy named Fat Lever playing for them... and a junkie named Roy Tarpley... they were kind of a basket case back then...

Not only was he named "Fat" (short for Lafayette) - but he was an awesome baller, and is one of the greatest triple-double machines in NBA history...

houston rockets - back from the back to back chips with hakeem and clyde, and the great supporting cast of ellie, horry, kenny the jet. Theyve struggled to get back to those glory days, but over the past few seasons theyve slowly rebuilt and I think found a solid support crew for Tmac and Yao.
Clutch City!

Minnesota *Cue Laugh Now* ... Started taking an intereste in the days of Garnett, Cassell, Sprewell, Sczerbiak and Kandy Man.. Was a good team, struggled to throw it all into one though, now theyre all gone so still like to see how theyre going. Apart from that though like to watch the teams that play as a team and now just an individual for excample Kobe or Lebron... For example like to watch the Pistons play as they have a team full of capable scorers not just one or two.

Not one person owning up to being a Bulls fan *because of Mike*.

It is strange how anti-popular-culture works.
