To compliment the "how many fans from each team" thread, I thought it would be interesting to see which is the most hated team in the NBA. Maybe you hate a team because that is your team's rival or because of their fan base etc. What ever you reason I want to know which is the league's most hated team. Please, if you feel the need to post your reason, do so without being inflammatory. I really dislike having my threads closed.

I'd say the Lakers just because they've won so much. During the recent playoffs I'd say the Nuggs are up there with all the "Thuggets" comments.

The Celtics. With ESPN showing them non-stop, and the dirtiest players on earth in Rondo, Pierce, and the spineosaurus that is Kevin Garnett, they are quickly becoming the most hated team.

The Lakers are like the Yankees. Overflushed with money, bloat, and did i say money? When they have a problem, they throw more and more money at it until it does away.

Both teams have the WORST fans in either sport. Lakers fans are too busy talking on their cell phones to watch a game, and usually leave by the end of the 3rd quarter. Yankees fans simply don't attend. Maybe if Steiny built a stadium entirely of luxury boxes, he could fill it.

Please explain?
Now keep in mind when you have a larger fan base, you are going to attract more bad fans as well as good ones.
So how do these teams have the WORST fan bases? Didn't the Caps fans squirt water at the Rangers coach? Why didn't you mention them?

Why to bring baseball into it...If you ever went to Yankee Stadium before it became too expensive to go you would know we have one of the most passionate fan bases in any sport and there is NO comparision to Laker fans. I like that you make misguided biased and extremely shortsighted claims though... So because the fans that used to fill the stadium were priced out this year, this makes Yankee fans bad fans? Ok. This guy is a clown.

For me it is the Lakers

At different times I would have said the Knicks or Pistons. I realized that it was the Lakers when they played Detroit in the finals and I was completely pulling for Detroit. So many LA fans expect them to be great and when they are not they usually act like they are anyway. The fans are pretty spoiled, like Duke or Ohio State football, and just get on my nerves. Please don't respond to that, fans of those teams- I am not referring to you, I am referring to the ones that I have encountered in the real world. I also have a problem with bandwagon fans of which the Lakers, as with any very successful team, have a lot. Kobe rubs me the wrong way also because of how he tries to be, not emulate but be, MJ. My friend back home is a really obnoxious Lakers fan and I'm sure that plays into this opinion too.

It hasn't so far and as long as people keep it respectful, both of other's teams and of other's right to have an opinion, it shouldn't. I am pretty happy at the way this has progressed too far with people not feeling the need to defend their team. I am very surprised though that it is so lopsided. Aren't there enough rivalries in the NBA to make this thing a little more competitive?

LA Lakers. Simply put - whining and lack of camaraderie in the game. I respect em and actually love the team they have. But they obviously have team issues person wise and Kobe needs to realize that he has an amazing roster and USE IT. SOme argue he does...but when u compare the LA - Cleveland situation....u realize LA's is misutilized by 'some' people.

Y do the Heat hate the Bulls? Is it because of the team, the players, or the posters in this forum? Or is it because the Bulls Dynasty knocked them out in the 97 conference finals or the sweep after the Heat won their first title, or because we got Rose? I don't hate the Heat, just the Heat fans....but this isn't asking which fans you hate the most. So I voted for the C's, I hate every player on that team except Ray Allen, the only true class act.

You're right. If I had thought about that I would have made it a poll that would allow people to pick several. Either way we would still end up with the team that is most hated and that way we would have an accurate ranking of who else is disliked. I think it's too late to change it but I'll look.

05-05-2009, 06:40 PM
It's always been the Piston's and the Knicks for myself as a Bulls fan. The past few years Miami crept up there but mostly because of Posey. It's hard to hate the Players on Miami right now, I do not like some Miami fans on this site but that's besides the point.

However, this recent series with Boston really opened my eyes to the way they play, and the things they expect to go their way in games. From Pierces arrogance to Perkins loud mouth to the media, to Rondo's over the top consequence free fouls, to KG acting like an animal in a classless matter on the sidelines of all places, it's been made very easy to hate the Celtics so that's my pick.

I don't hate any team. There's been plenty of teams that I've hated in the past because of rivalries, like the Pistons/Mavericks/Knicks/Bulls/Pacers. But it's hard to hate those teams now. The Pistons core seems to be fizzling out. As for the Mavs, those Finals were 3 years ago and I hold nothing against them now (still hate Mark Cuban tho). The Knicks and Pacers have had past success against us, but a lot of those main players that I hated are gone from each team.

I've actually grown to like the Bulls. I enjoy the small rivalry we've got going on. Rose is a beast, and I was really pulling for them this year. Obviously I'm not too hot on the Hawks right now. I don't think i hate them though....just Josh Smith and the fans.

As I said earlier, Boston doesn't have as many fans on PSD, who would vote Lakers, and a lot of Laker fans vote Celtics, as well as Bulls fans. And as we've seen in the other thread, LA and Boston are two of the most active and biggest fan bases on PSD at the moment, so it makes sense.

Correct, alot of Bulls fans just recently started to hate the Celtics too. I for one do not like this current Celtics team (I didnt like them before the Bulls-Celtics playoff series), but I have liked their past teams. I currently like this Lakers team, hated the Shaq/Kobe team though.

one team i cant stand is san antonio... they are just boaring, tim duncan is great player no doubt but he is also a yawn and arguably the most boaring superstar to ever play the game.

They keep duncan, parker, and ginobley and they sign whatever free agent is available EVERY SINGLE YEAR.

and when it doesnt work they release them and sign a new bag of vet free agents..
they have no identity,

staudamire,
thomas,
finley,
berry,
gooden,
horry,

the list goes on and on, but i think you get the point. they just dont solidify a consistant line up, its like every year theyre roster changes yet stays the exact same way lol ....

And when ever they make the finals, the nba always has low ratings and views ... ball fans do not want to see this boaring team in the finals, no one ever cares if they win accept the half full stadium fans in attendance. a team thats that good should have more fan base and suport.. they just all around doo doo to watch.

I hate Chauncey Billups....he's great player and all, but I just can't stand him, and I think he's overrated. Everyone thinks that he's so much more of an effecient player over AI when the fact is that he's not....

I'll just throw the playoff numbers out there, because AI's numbers are far superior in the regular season but everyone says look at the playoff stats, so here they are:

Chauncey Billups--------------------Allen Iverson

17.4 ppg------------------------------------------------29.7 ppg
5.8 apg-------------------------------------------------6 apg
3.5 rpg--------------------------------------------------3.8 rpg
40% from the field---------------------------------------40% from the field
19.3 PER------------------------------------------------21.2 PER

Kenyon Martin is just a dirty player.

George Karl is the biggest slob of a coach ever. I couldn't stand him when he was coaching the Bucks against the Sixers in the 2001 ECF. And last year everyone was saying how horrible a coach he was and how uninterested he seemed to be in preaching defense to the team....

Direct quote from my 08-09 NBA Preview edition of Sports Illustrated, "If you go scout a game it doesn't look like George Karl is into coaching his team. He's not taking timeouts at key times, he's letting guys go, he's doing nothing with X's and O's at the defensive end..."

And yet everyone says that it's AI's fault that the Nuggets played no defense last year.

Guess what, on the Sixers a coach by the name of Larry Brown actually told his team to play defense and the Sixers went all the way to the Finals with Allen Iverson.

Is it AI's fault that George Karl was too lazy to try and coach the team?

That's why I hate the Nuggets
