Do you pull for a certain player more or a certain team more?

I pull for a certain player more.

07-23-2008, 06:52 PM
Certain team for me.

I was always I huge fan of Yao, even when he played in China, since my cousin lived in China and saw him play. He told me that he is amazing, and I gotta come down and see him. So I did, and saw about 6 of his games, and started following him. At the time, I wasn't a huge fan of the NBA. I then decided that I would be a fan of whatever team drafted him, and since it was the Rockets, I am a Houston fan ever since.

I pull for the Lakers no matter what, but I can't help but cheer A.I. the guy has always amazed me.

07-23-2008, 07:15 PM
i pull for the bobcats and all players who went to Duke...odd considering the bobcats are a UNC heavy team

07-23-2008, 07:29 PM
Raptors fan first and foremost.

I pull for some former Raptors like Morris Peterson, as well as some guys not affiliated with the Raptors team at all, like KG.

Team first, but there are some players I pull for.

Team. I've been a Laker fan all my life. Kobe just came along.

07-23-2008, 08:07 PM
Team....i pulled for the hornets before paul, west and chandler

07-23-2008, 08:15 PM
I've been a Laker fan my whole life, but I'm starting to become a CP3 fan as well (after kobe of course).

07-23-2008, 08:20 PM
My team...I love the Mavericks, but I always root guys like Kobe, Iverson, K.G. and a few other that play with heart.

07-23-2008, 08:21 PM
Team, all the way, anything but the warriors is boring as hell.

07-23-2008, 08:27 PM
I pull for the rockets but i would like sum players to have good numbers, especially the ones from texas like Okafor, Gerald Green, TJ Ford etc.

07-23-2008, 08:53 PM
Player more than team.

07-23-2008, 09:10 PM
Yea Lakers

07-23-2008, 09:14 PM
Pacers fan first, and a Vince Carter, TMac, and Kobe fan whether they play where they are now, or Italy, don't matter always a fan of them 3.

07-23-2008, 10:55 PM
Raptors first, Steve Nash (and the Phoenix suns) a very close second.

07-23-2008, 11:03 PM
player- carmelo is a great player and i liked him since college but my favorite team isnt neccessarily the nuggets b/c they suck in the playoffs

07-24-2008, 05:42 AM
Players come and go, but true love (to a team) lasts forever!

I've always been a Wolves fan, but I am very happy for KG to finally have his ring (though I would have preferred it to happen in a Wolves Jersey ;)) I think it's stupid when 'fans' abbandon 'their' team to jump on the bandwaggon xD

07-24-2008, 09:04 AM
I do a combination of both, although I hate more teams than I like...

The first team I started watching was the Lakers and then I realized Kobe was stupidly good. So I guess my man love for Kobe outshined my love for the team. Say if KB actually went to the Bulls last leason, I still would love the Lakers but Chicago would have catapulted from just an average team I liked to a top 3 favorite.

I do the same thing with all players too though. Guys like AI, Lebron, and Melo although I don't like them or their teams I have no choice but to respect there game. I always root for players like Kidd, Nash, CP3, D-Will, and Dwight Howard to name a few. So in turn because I like them, obvouisly I want their teams to win.

Interesting question. I usually would respond with Team, because Im just a huge fan of my local teams, Seahawks and Mariners. But now the Sonics?

Im finding myself still interested in "that" team, but find myself despising every bit of it --- except for the coaches and players.

So im torn

07-24-2008, 03:11 PM
Team fan, sixers. Although when iverson was here i liked him more than the entire team but i am better now.

Team and player---Heat and D-Wade...:D

Naw but for real it's a team sport....

BMW--Beasley Marion Wade

07-24-2008, 03:46 PM
team- liked the celtics before the big three

07-24-2008, 03:47 PM
I could care less for a player.
I will always be a Heat fan, even after Wade leaves.
Even if we have 15 D-Leaguers on our team I will always be a Heat fan, I could care less about a player.

07-24-2008, 03:49 PM
I'm a die hard Kings fan, but the only thing I looked forward to last season was Kevin Martin, due to all the injuries that ruined our season, and when Martin went down, it was TOUGH to say the least.

definetly a team however i had a 5000 dollar pool last year for fantasy so when my players were playing i was going for the players

I love the wizards ever since I went to their game when I was 5 against golden state my friends were all going for the warriors but, I was going for the Wizards and stuck to them ever since. But, I've alwas loved 3 point shooting and have been A fan Of Ray Allen longer then a wizrds fan by about a year. So I was cheering for him to win MVP in the finals.

07-24-2008, 04:08 PM
team definitely but i like to follow certain players also

07-24-2008, 05:45 PM
People who just root for players aren't real basketball fans, they're just imposter's who live to hunt for glory.

Player fanboys are the gayest thing around and when I find them on PSD it just makes me love the NBA a little less every time.

07-24-2008, 05:49 PM
Neither really. :shrug: I like basketball first and foremost. I like a lot of teams, even the ones I didn't like previously. If they do something to improve themselves, or they have great talent, why not cheer for them? I just want to see the best basketball possible.

I pull for all of the teams in the league that have smart and strong management, just 2 years ago Kevin Prichard and the Portland Trailblazers have skyrocketed my stock for them.
