Oke everybody has his Favourite team, teh one you go on cheering trough THick and teen, and of course there are those teams that for wherever reason you bandwaggon for a time , you know when your team is NOT winning yuo still bleed for them but you ask yourself who ofthe title conteders is gonna Win and tend to like one or anotehr you may also temprorary like a team becaus eof some player, for example i used to hate Toronto and now wish good things to them and follow their steps closely because of Calderon and Garbajosa but i know that in most cases there is ALWAYS some SECOND team that you ALWAY follow, not only ocassionally but consistently you dont take it so serious as you take your FAVOURITE team but still cheer if they make a good trade or pass to the next roudn of playoffs, basically that team you would like to Win the finals if your team cant, or the one you would like your Fav to Beat in the finals.

Im a laker Fan since mid 80s and forever will be no matter waht , no matter how many more 91-96 or 04-08 periods we go trough but i will also always follow and like The Knics as a secodn option.

what about you? Whi are your second teams? not bandwaggons like Spurs, celtics or suns because they MIGHT win this year but teams you alwayus cared about?

Favorite team: Sacramento Kings. Been watching them since I was like 6 years old. Family was season ticket holders for 10 years. Let's just say I even have a Kings Tyus Edney jersey.

2nd Favorite: Charlotte Bobcats. Started to watch them when Gerald Wallace was picked by them in the expansion draft. I'm also an Emeka Okafor fan, like Jason Richardson, Felton, Caroll....basically most of their team except Adam Morrison (Hack).

I also enjoy watching the Warriors play because they are entertaining and I like some of their players (Barnes, Ellis, Biedrins, Davis).

And I NEVER do the whole bandwagon team thing. I think you can tell...I'm a Bobcats fan.

I've always admired Baron Davis and the Warriors.

I am a Laker fan for life, yet if I was to root for a team other than the lake show, it would be them. I love his intensity and style of play. Plus, he went to UCLA, my school, and went to high school right down the street from where I live.

I also like the Trail Blazers simply because of the way they've transformed from the Jail Blazers to what they are today... a solid team.

I must say that I absolutely don't root for any team but the Sixers...while I may like other players around the league, I view every team as an obstacle in my teams persuit of a championship and I hate any team that gets in the way of that...I'm not being critical of people who like more than one team, but I won't allow myself to take joy in a team other than my favorite team winning

CELTS20
02-05-2008, 02:24 PM
I'm a big fan of Jose Calderon and Chris Bosh, so I'm liking the Raptors a lot lately.

However, next year I plan on following the Portland Trailblazers very closely as I am a HUGE Greg Oden supporter.

Celts have always been #1 in my heart and as crazy as this may sound, I would have to say the Lakers are my 2nd favorite.

I love Felton and Okafor! And I also like G-Force, J-Rich and Morrison

I bleed blue and silver for the Lions, and I bleed a lot cuz they rip my heart out each year, but when they're out of it, usually after five or six weeks, I root for underdogs. The Saints last year, Browns this year, Titans two years ago. Teams that have chemistry and are fun to watch.

I loved them in the first NBA street and have loved the Mavs ever since

02-05-2008, 03:53 PM
Right now it's Portland...I always like seeing an underdog team proving people wrong. Jarrett Jack and Brandon Roy are two of my favorite players.

They are a true team in the sense of it and I love how mature they are despite their age.

I live and die by the Bulls. If I HAD to choose a second team, it's usually a bottom dweller that has a few players I like on it. Before I didn't mind the Grizzlies, but not anymore. The Bobcats are aight.

02-05-2008, 05:09 PM
Favourites are the Raptors and Suns. 28 other second choices. :D But I've always liked the Bulls, and I like a lot of the underdog teams because they're underdogs.

NoSense
02-05-2008, 05:13 PM
I'm a Suns fan since '03, well it's since I've been into the NBA...

But my favorite second team was New Jersey with K-Mart and J-Kidd but right now I like the 'Cats....They've a really good team IMO....

Born proud NY'er the knicks are in my blood ....

My second fav team would have to be the Cavs..
Always was a Bob Sura fan and he was PG there from 95-00
Then I loved when they got Ricky Davis
And then they pulled a instant hall of famer L. James

But be for sure whenver NY is playing the Cavs .... im rolllin with NY

I disagree. I'm one of the biggest Kings fan out there but I also follow the Bobcats. I like to think of it as my Western Conference team and my Eastern Conference team. They only meet twice a year and the Kings are always given the edge when they meet. Also if you only follow one team in the NBA, you are missing out on a lot of great basketball/players.

Then yu dont like the sport at all.

Its like a friend of mine who likes U2, and its his favourite band but he does not like any other band in the world its all Bono Bono Bono.

well i hardly consider him a person who likes MUsic, he jsut likes one group, thats poor.

everyody has his favourite Group/ Team im a Lakers/ The Cure fanatic

but you can enjoy with the Basket/music for itself i enjoy the Mavs, Hawks, Cavs, Sonics etc / Jayhawks(band), Kiss, Joy Division, Steve Earle, Pink Floyd etc

Adn of course there is always that other Band/Team you SPECIALLY like as your second choice Knicks/ Aerosmith.

Its like this, Love Basket, have an open Mind, Be Water my friend.

02-06-2008, 06:54 AM
Im from NZ I first saw a nba game and the lakers were playing supported them ever since (10+years) have become an avid supporter and kobe fan, also a big bynum fan ever since the shaq game last season....

2nd team used to be denver but i really dont like AI so I would have to go with the new york knicks as bad as they are :)

02-06-2008, 07:31 AM
LAKERS, baby! Second is Memphis! Thanks a lot for the gift, Grizzlies, we owe you a lot!

Right now I have to agree. Memphis really helped out, not only in getting Gasol but finally getting rid of Kwame. But in all seriousness it is the Lakers and that is it. I used to have a soft spot for Sacramento, as I'm from there, but when they started to challenge L.A. all bets were off. Lakers for life. I'm just glad I don't support an annually weak team, it would kill me every year watching the losing (I'm sure Clippers fans know what I'm saying).

I'm not a true fan of any team after the Pistons.

I liked the Mavs and the Suns back when they were still the top dogs in the West; I really enjoyed watching the Suns play, Nuggets too. I was also huge on the Warriors during the end of the 07 season/ Playoffs.

This last year, my second favorite team was the Celtics 'cause I love KG and they were the one team I could accept a Piston defeat to. Their win was the most satisfying championship for me since my Pistons won 4 years ago.

Currently, I really like the Celtics, Hornets, and Jazz.

Not true, i don't even support Oklahoma (formally Seattle.) I don't watch their games, I don't post in their forums, just sayin if the Nets are out of the running I wanna see them win. Nets for life, doesn't matter how bad they may be next season, who they trade, or where they move.
