If your team doesn't make the playoffs. Is there a certain team you start rooting for to win it all?(if so who?) or Do you stop caring until the next season?

When the Lakers got knocked out a couple of years ago I was going for the Jazz. I love D Will's game. If the Lakers are in I hate the Jazz.

I have a question for you since you are a Jazz fan. Why is it that you guys have been playing so well at home but suck on the road over the last 2 years?

Our crowd is like a 6th man for our team. they feed off of us. also I feel it's all mental too. since we've got this win streak. our confidence is high. that we know we can win on the road now. so hopefully our road woes are done with.

If I wasn't a C's fan, the Heat would be getting my support.

Heat and Nola, but if its Boston and LA again, then its time to wait till next season.

This thread made me realize how much I dislike every team in the NBA other than the Bulls. I guess I'd just want to root for the underdog in each series.

If my team doesn't make it, and the Bobcats do, I'm rooting for them. They're the feel-good story of the year, along with Denver. Otherwise, I'm pretty biased against east-coast teams. I'd root for Houston, Denver, Utah, and Portland, in that order. If there was another Eastern team to root for, it'd probably be the Bulls.

I usually wouldnt root for anybody, but i love underdogs

for example, i wanted the hawks to knock off the celtics last year, i dont hate the celtics, i just like seeing upsets

That's just liking to see competitive basketball. When #1 knocks out #8 in four blowout games, it's really not that fun to watch.

If the Celtics got knocke out round 1 by..say philly. Id probabaly rout for philly to go far since they knocked us off. Kind of a soothing thing haha.

But, id just rout for the underdog in every series. I wouldnt want to see ORL,DET or CLE win. Probabaly an Atlanta or Miami type team.

And in the west...go JAZZ!

Since my favourite team seems a lock to the finals i shouldnt need to root for anybody else, ;) But if for some reason Lakers fail....well my second and third favourite teams wotn make the playoffs (Mavs, Knicks) ......So i guess i would root for Blazers (because of Rudy)....when they fall then ill just root for anybody who faces the Celtics.

If my team doesn't make the playoffs, I'll basically cheer for any team to beat LA ^_^.

Utah Portland NOs, Cleveland.

Utah I dont know why I just dont mind any of there players

Portland because they went through what my Pacers went through with all the off the court issues and have changed their team around, also I like Oden since he is from Indiana. I pull for all the local guys.

NOs I like them and the saints I want that city to do good. I've been there an always liked the city.

Cleveland I feel bad for those fans they need a championship. I know how they feel. I felt that way till my colts finally came through. Hang in there Cleveland it will eventually happen.:)

Well since I know the Raptors sure as hell aren't making the playoffs, I'm rooting for the Jazz. I want Jerry Sloan to get a ring, he deserves one.

Jaji
03-11-2009, 04:22 PM
When the Pacers are out of it, I'm routing for LeBron... soon to be the GOAT.

If, for some reason, the Sixers don't win the NBA Finals (which they will) then I would love to see Jerry Sloan finally get a ring. I also am a big fan of Deron Williams.

Or: Anyone but the Lakers. :pray:

If the C's got knocked out, then I would want anyone but LA or Clev to win. If those teams won it would be a 4 month circle jerk by ESPN.

shonk688
03-11-2009, 04:29 PM
Lets just pretend you can choose any team except your team to cheer for not just the one's that are in the playoffs this year. Who would you pull for then?

if the kings dont make the playoffs usually i go for the hornets or hawks

I'll be rooting for Phoenix if they make it. Also Portland, maybe Utah. In the east, hmmm... maybe Miami and LeBron against Boston if and when it happens.

If the Jazz go, I would pull for the Magic. I like the Bulls as well.

The Jazz for sure, it's my home town team and I follow them fairly closely. My Uncle and Grandma got me into the Lakers when I was younger, so my team has been the Lakers since I've been old enough to be a true fan.
I go to Jazz games for fun, and go to every Lakers jazz game with my Lakers gear. Sloan is one of my favorite coaches, doesn't take **** from anyone and Williams is IMO the best pg in the league and is one of my favorite non Lakers.

thats sooo true. it would be horrendous. id be watching MLB Network for allmy sports ha

i guess outside of the Celtics, i like the Jazz (love their old school style), Blazers (B-Roy is ill), Spurs (TP9 is unbelievable at those layups).

in the East, D-Wade (NO ONE has dedication to the game like him, i swear when u watch him, he is like in a zone of his own) I would like the hawks, but they just talk TOO MUCH and bad talked Boston like crazy so i cant root for them.

03-12-2009, 10:24 AM
i am a warriors fan and a california native. since we are not going to playoffs, kings are not going, clippers are not going, i will root for the only california team out there.

*celtics fans are band wagoners. first bandwagoners came because of russell, cousy and others. second bandwagoners came because of Bird. third came with KG.*

warriors had their share of bandwagoners too ( ahem jessica alba ) but with our current state of despair we know our true fans are ( and we do not wear paperbags )

If Portland doesn't get into the playoffs, then I'll root for Utah to win it all. They have one of the deepest, most talented teams in the league. With the way they're playing right now, they could take on the Lakers.

Super.
03-12-2009, 10:37 AM
If I wasn't a C's fan, the Heat would be getting my support.

yea...D.Wade is simply amazing

stop caring i just bet on the games to make interesting once ravens r done or vote against the steelers or red skins

Hey FRRRAAANNKKK, that's funny because isn't that what they did with the Celts. Don't act like they don't get non-stop love from ESPN too. Remember they are East Coast. Also your probably a Red Sox and Pats fan too so yeah you guys get su**ed off by Espn basically all year. Get over it.
