Other NBA Teams You Root For- From Wisconsin, try to cheer on Bucks but lots of people have given up on them as a solid franchise lol
Other Sports Teams You Root For- Packers, Brewers, Badgers, Red Sox.
***I will add how I became a fan. I was always a fan of Ray Allen, since he used to be a Buck, so when he got traded to Boston I wanted to cheer him and the C's on. But what really made me jump on the bandwagon and became a fan was that my family went to Boston for vacation in the summer of 2007. Just loved the city and how passionate the city of Boston and the people were about the Celtics and Red Sox. I was hooked instantly. Reminded me of Packer fans.
So yes, I jumped on bandwagon you can say but I'm not jumping off EVER.

I am more of a sports fanatic than a diehard fan to a particular team, there are few sports figures that I hate but Danny Ainge used to be one of them, he was a whiny, annoying player, and overrated coach and exec, but ever since the 2007 summer when he landed KG and Ray to team up with Paul I changed my tune, and Celts became my team with the Sonics leaving town, obviously have been a big Ray ALlen fan and KG is one of my favorite athletes ever, watching them win the NBA finals together is one of my favorite sports memories ever. I love Danny's boldness and aggressiveness, his competitiveness is outstanding and great fit for the passionate NE sports atmoshere. He doesnt make the right move every time but he has to be one of the best execs in pro sports. If there is one person who is most responsbile for the Celts making it to the finals 2 times with 1 title the last 4 years it is Danny Ainge.
Also, I watched Avery play in HS and love him, not just because we hail from the same city but I love his game, not many players like him and he is one of Danny and Doc's guys they want to build around (hopefully, you never know with Danny).
Avery went to the same HS as Red Sox Ace Jon Lester, i used to take him deep with bunts to first base!!!!!!! OH YEA!!!!!!

I really hate MIA, I think Lebron is a good guy and a great player but he is still b----made if you ask me and I blame him for messing up the NBA. Ever since he bailed to MIA in pusuit of an easier way to win a title we have these other superstars following suit and holding hostage the teams that drafted them; Melo, CP3, Dwight....
I hate it when people argue that MIA did the same thing Boston did to win the title....WRONG....Danny landed these guys via trade first of all, 2nd KG and Ray were transitioning from being go to players in their prime, to vets who were OK with being compliments for the betterment of the team, also Celts won the finals and MIA lost!
