Seeing that I was born in Chicago and I'm constantly visiting LA (I'm there most of the year tbh) I'm a die hard fan of both teams. I love them equally, even when they play one another. Is it wrong? Is anyone else like this as well? Please say yes lol

Yes it's wrong! Lol but not not rare....

You gotta have your main team, the team you create yourself to play on lol

Have the lakers as your 2nd team, that's not bad

Yeah, considering you said die-hard dude. I can undertsnad if you really like both teams, but can only be a die-hard fan for one team in a sport.

also just out of curiosity when they play who do you root for when they play

Depends on who needs the win more. Just like if both of them are in a race for a free agent, I root for the team that needs the player most to get him.

Example: T-Mac. Bulls need him more so I hope Bulls get him.
Kurt Thomas, Lakers needed him more so I was hoping they got him.

I'm telling you, I share equal love to both teams.

One team per sport for being a Die hard. Liking and being a die hard fan are completely different. When the Red Sox lose I am in a bad mood til next game, their loss effects me, but if the Giants lose I just shake it off. I like the Giants, but I am a Red Sox fan.

I agree with pretty much everyone so far - 'die hard fan' precludes you from having two, almost by definition. For the most part I'd say your childhood/hometown team should usually be your #1 - I think it takes a certain kind of personality to be a die hard supporter of a team then adopt another team just because you go there a lot or even live there. If anything you should go there and root against that team even more.
I'd be a lot better with it if it were a ****** team, eg you became a Clipper fan to get your local hoops fix, or if you moved to a small market like Memphis and adopted the Grizzlies, but I don't see how you can be a 'die hard' Chicago fan and just waltz in and adopt the Lakers. You should hate the Lakers more than anyone. To me it suggests a person who likes winning, and likes rooting for the popular team.

There is nothing with being die hard fan of both teams man... you dont have to choose a number 1 or a number 2... just do what makes you happy... Its not like the Bulls and Lakers are in the same conference...

I know alot of people who are die hard fans of two teams... in various different sports.. alot of times.. those teams dont even face each other at all because of the conference... and would only meet unless its the super bowl... world series.. nba finals...

So if you want to root for Bulls and lakers... by all means.. go ahead...

I root for ALL NY Teams...

My main teams will always be Yankees, Giants, Knicks and Rangers....

and if they faced their NY counterparts in the championship game..or playoffs... I would go for my main teams...

but if the Mets, Jets, Islanders and soon to be Nets were to make the Championship games and none of my main teams made it.. I would root for them to win...

I agree with a lot of what has been said.

I think you should have ONE favorite team, but it's OK to LIKE another team.

What I can't stomach are the frontrunner fans. I don't know. lets take half of the Miami Heat fanbase. Now I can be happy for and respect the diehard Heat fans. However it just irks me that all of these Heat fans who have join dates in June or July are talking trash, saying "we", etc. ANYBODY can pick to root for the good teams. A real fan can stick with a team good or bad.

As for your situation, it has a slight smell of being a frontrunner since you like a powerhourse from yesteryear and a powerhouse of today. However, I wouldn't say you are in the wrong.

My question...... if you moved to Memphis, Minnesota, Indiana, etc.....would you be a "die-hard" for them or only if they were winners?

A lot of that is true. I remember back in elementary school, every kid was a Knicks fan. There was a pretty good split between Mets and Yankees fans since I went to school not far from Shea although you'd expect Queens folk to be more inclined to be Mets fans (not to mention all of those free tickets they give out to kids to go to Mets games back in the day). Local is a bit relative if you take into account regional coverage. I followed the Wolverines and Huskies b/c they were on TV all the time. I think the only team that I genuinely thought about before I followed them was Everton FC.

If your 2 teams was wizards and Memphis i can understand but i bet you was a fan of the bulls because of Jordan and once Jordan retire you jump on the Laker ban wagon since they were the team of the decade. yes there's a huge problem.

I do think it's allright to be a fan of a team, yet still have your favorite player in a different uniform.

For example, my favorite player in the league is Rondo...yet I'm a Spurs fan, and I will be even after the day Timmy and Manu retire.

But two teams...maybe if you're in LA with the Clips and Lakers...but that doesn't make sense to me. That's like saying Chelsea fans also are allowed to be Arsenal fans.

I respect people that stick with their teams even when they stink.

its strange.

You always have yout team and other teams you also like but they feeling is not the same.

I mean I like Knicks a lot but should a Lakers vs Knicks finals happen theres nothing more than Purpe and Gold in my mind and Hard Frack NY.

And if Knicks won that finals it wouldnt felel any better for me since Lakers lost.

But also if its knicks vs whatever team from west finals not nameld lakers ill pull hard fro them to win and be glad if they do.

Well thats not the case with CLupes and lakers.

Obviusly if two teams of a city are great like Arsenal, Chelsea or totenhamm, Milan and Inter, Real Madrid and Atletico, ROmaa and Lazio people are not going to root for the other.

But they may have simpaty for some loser horrible , tiny team of the city say C rystal Place in london or Getafe in Madrid or Munchen 1860 in munich.

It is hard to comprehend loving two teams. It seems the team you grow up with is your favorite. I grew up with the Bulls being my team (i was born in 1986) and when the Twolves were created it took me until KG came around to really love them, and I was 10 years old when he was drafted. But now I could care less about the Bulls. I'll let everyone on PSD stone me to death before I stop loving the Timberwolves, no matter how bad they are and how ******** the GM is.

I think being die hard for two teams says you have self confidence issues.

Two very awful teams (although theyre turning it around :rolleyes: ) You could say I'm as close to diehard for the Warriors as you can get for a second team but I'm not an idiot and know where to draw the line. Any time the two are on the same court or even battling over a specific free agent or draft pick, its Knicks Knicks Knicks!

Im not trying to be rude, but its juvenile. You sound young. I remember growing up lots of kids would do crap like this. Im old school I guess. i was raised you get one team per sport. You can "follow" another team like in the playoffs or something, but never 2 teams. If my teams are out of the playoffs I root for the underdog 99% of the time, unless the underdog is a team I hate. Pick one.

I'd be a lot better with it if it were a ****** team, eg you became a Clipper fan to get your local hoops fix, or if you moved to a small market like Memphis and adopted the Grizzlies, but I don't see how you can be a 'die hard' Chicago fan and just waltz in and adopt the Lakers. You should hate the Lakers more than anyone. To me it suggests a person who likes winning, and likes rooting for the popular team.

Ya, that shizzle pisses me off too. It seems like almost every Laker fan I know also is a huge NY Yankee fan too. And, they like the Cowboys. Effing pathetic

I'm from Chicago, but my "true" team is the Eagles. I'm a White Sox fan, but usualyy I won't get devistated after a tough loss. So it is hard to imagine being a diehard fan of two teams between two different sports, let alone one league.

At least you have a connection to both cities. I can respect that way more then a guy who is a die hard fan of any team that has never lived in that area. Example: I live in Northern California and see die hard Yankees fans, Cowboys fans, Lakers fans, etc and they have never even been to their stadium. They just go when that team comes into town. I hate them all.

My friends used to rip on me all the time,along the way my Giant fan friends annoyed me so much,I became a strictly Jet fan,you just can't root for both.


I always hated the Yankees,and rip on anyone who roots for them and the Mets.

I agree with a lot of what has been said.

I think you should have ONE favorite team, but it's OK to LIKE another team.

What I can't stomach are the frontrunner fans. I don't know. lets take half of the Miami Heat fanbase. Now I can be happy for and respect the diehard Heat fans. However it just irks me that all of these Heat fans who have join dates in June or July are talking trash, saying "we", etc. ANYBODY can pick to root for the good teams. A real fan can stick with a team good or bad.

As for your situation, it has a slight smell of being a frontrunner since you like a powerhourse from yesteryear and a powerhouse of today. However, I wouldn't say you are in the wrong.

My question...... if you moved to Memphis, Minnesota, Indiana, etc.....would you be a "die-hard" for them or only if they were winners?

Even if I moved, I wouldn't switch teams. I moved from Chicago, yet I still love the Bulls.


If the Bulls and Lakers meet in the Finals, who do you want to win?

I've answered this before. More than likely, it'll be Chicago. Bulls haven't won in over a decade, so I'll be pulling for the Bulls. However, if it was the Bulls who dominated the last 10 years, and Lakers had not won in a while, then I'd go for the Lakers.


If your 2 teams was wizards and Memphis i can understand but i bet you was a fan of the bulls because of Jordan and once Jordan retire you jump on the Laker ban wagon since they were the team of the decade. yes there's a huge problem.

I was a Bulls fan from birth, and seeing that my entire family was grown to love both Bulls and Lakers, it grew on me. Moving closer to LA just made it that much sweeter.


Let me guess you also like the Red Wings, Yankees and Steelers

I hate hockey and baseball with a passion. If you pay attention to my avatar, you'll see I'm a Bears fan. No need for the smartass remark.


Yea you can only have one team. Sounds like we just have a bandwagon fan. I bet after this season you will be a laker and heat fan...

Lol this guy.


dont listen to any of them, you might have genuine die hard fandom for both teams but no one else will comprehend untill they have been in your spot

I know.


My mom is Jewish and my father was raised Catholic... Does that have anything to do with this thread?? just kidding.

It is hard to comprehend loving two teams. It seems the team you grow up with is your favorite. I grew up with the Bulls being my team (i was born in 1986) and when the Twolves were created it took me until KG came around to really love them, and I was 10 years old when he was drafted. But now I could care less about the Bulls. I'll let everyone on PSD stone me to death before I stop loving the Timberwolves, no matter how bad they are and how ******** the GM is.

I think being die hard for two teams says you have self confidence issues.

LOL! Nice philosophy lmao.


I like the Bulls and Rockets. But I like the Rockets mainly because I live in Houston now and my wife loves them.

You like them equally?


yes it is wrong. because when one team sucks u jump on the other one.

Is that why I still loved them both even before Rose came to Chicago and Gasol came to LA? They both sucked. Even after MJ, I still loved the Bulls just as much as the Lakers. Nothing has changed. Nothing will.

I'm also a huge Redsox fan, I'd even say close to die hard, and same goes for the 49ers, but even they play second fiddle to the Knicks for me...

You just cant like both. You love one and hate the other. Its like a law or something. People out of the area dont really get that its a pretty big rivalry in the area.

Look at it like this. 75% of the laker fan base today have no relations with the entire region of Southern California period. They hopped on the bandwagon.

In '03 when they were both playing in the World Series, I couldn't choose one over the other.

I really just wanted to see a great series. I enjoyed watching that series, even though I didn't root for one of them. Just enjoyed baseball because I knew at the end one of my teams were going to be champions.

I might have been rooting for the Marlins in game 6, though. Since the Yankees already had 26 rings at the time, I thought the Marlins could help boost their popularity by winning a second world series.

In the end, it was a win-win situation for me, but it's the only sport which I have two teams.

No, you're not. You can't be a "diehard" fan of two teams. That term means you live and breathe that team and stick with them. That you would never have to think "which team do I want to win?" when your team is playing. I'm a die hard Mavericks fan. Every other team in the NBA can suck my balls, and thats the only way a true die hard fan can think.

You can say you are a die hard Laker fan because you "visit there all the time" but something tells me if you visited Milwaukee or Memphis all the time your passion for those teams wouldnt be there. Not to mention since you visit LA and thats the reason, why aren't you a "die hard" Clippers fan? Exactly.... its just a convenient way for you to always cheer for a winner.

I mean look how lucky you are! Your favorite teams you are a die hard fan for have won 11 championships in the last 20 years. How convenient! Are you sure you're not a die hard Spurs fan also because you visited the Alamo once when you were 6? Think about it, that would make 15 Championships......

and if those two can be then sue theres a third team you like more than the others.

My teams are now in the same division as of this year and I will only follow one. I could never however, be a fan of two teams in american sports and especially a "die hard" fan.

No, you're not. You can't be a "diehard" fan of two teams. That term means you live and breathe that team and stick with them. That you would never have to think "which team do I want to win?" when your team is playing. I'm a die hard Mavericks fan. Every other team in the NBA can suck my balls, and thats the only way a true die hard fan can think.

You can say you are a die hard Laker fan because you "visit there all the time" but something tells me if you visited Milwaukee or Memphis all the time your passion for those teams wouldnt be there. Not to mention since you visit LA and thats the reason, why aren't you a "die hard" Clippers fan? Exactly.... its just a convenient way for you to always cheer for a winner.

I mean look how lucky you are! Your favorite teams you are a die hard fan for have won 11 championships in the last 20 years. How convenient! Are you sure you're not a die hard Spurs fan also because you visited the Alamo once when you were 6? Think about it, that would make 15 Championships......

I bet you've only liked the lakers since 08. Bandwagon is far from diehard

And unfortunately, this goes for about 70% of the laker fan base today. Ever since Gasol got on board, fans started loading up and ditching their former teams.

if youre a die hard fan of any team this is how it should go:

1.) you love your team
2.) you hate the rest of the league
3.) you really hate the conference they play in
4.) you really really hate the division they play in
5.) you have one or two rival teams that if their team plane crashed with all of their family and loved ones in it, you'd go piss on it, just to do it.

sounds like an eagles fan. ahh gotta love the midset

if you're an equal fan of both teams, you aren't die-hard of either.

Born in Boston, raised in NJ so I like the Nets and don't hate the Knicks (closer to neutral than anything). But they are not even comparable. I'm as die-hard of a Celtics fan you'll ever find.

you can be a die-hard of two teams, as long as there's no rivalry or anything. its kinda hard in basketball since every team plays each other at least once a year. football tho is different, for example, im die-hard jets and packers and always have been and they only play each other every 4 years. is that wrong? i think not. since this is the nba forum tho, i agree this would be harder in basketball. and in nba i only love the knicks!

so if your team gets contracted you cant root for another team? you need to give up the sport completely.

Die hard means you root for them no matter what. How can you root for both teams when they play one another? There are no ties in basketball, what's good for one team hurts the other. What if they meet in the finals? If you see no paradox with these scenarios, I have to question your definition of die-hard.

I dont think so, Ive been a Steeler fan (football) since 78' and a 49er fan since 1981 (west coast) mainly because all my friends liked the Cowboys and I hated them. Still give the edge to the Steelers but like them both.

I think there are several acceptable reasons for being a die-hard fan of two teams in the same sport.. one is sentimental, maybe ur dads or grandpas or brothers (who passed away) favorite team and your favorite team. also, location, if you were born in orlando and now live in portland and are a fan of both, i can understand. Also, say a kid grew up in OKC, absolutely loving the Mavericks or something, and all of the sudden, the thunder move to his hometown. i can understand being a fan of both. but general rule of thumb, pick one and stick with em, heat all the way.

Just like all the people who support different soccer teams in different league around the world. They follow a team for in premier league, serie a, la liga, bunderliga, etc. Just ridiclious. They are absolutely not die hard fans.

The only sport I really can see someone "loving" two teams is college sports. As far as professional sports go, only one. There are some acceptable answers that have already been provided, but I would in no way ever consider someone who likes two different teams equally to be a "die hard" fan of either team. Just that they like them both.

I think a lot of people on this message board consider loving ONE team similar to being in love with ONE person as a lover/spouse/boyfriend/girlfriend. But I consider being a fan of more than one team to be more in common with loving your children.

If you have two children, it is possible to love both equally? Similarly, if you follow two teams, is it possible to love both equally and be a "die-hard" fan of both? I say "Yes" to both questions. If you don't have children or grew up in one NBA city, then you probably wouldn't understand.

Its far more stupid to have 2 teams dude, its time to grow up and pick one. Ive never even heard of such things til PSD. People that really follow sports, I.E. diehard have one team per sport. Its the way of the world my friend. But I dont know, maybe yore young and are part of the generation that got "participation" trophies and you think that type of shyt is ok. Winning AND losing is a part of life and having one team will take you on that roller coaster part of life. But when you take 2 teams from the biggest markets that are almost always competitive, you will only know what winning is like.

And if you like baseball, you should really be a Yankee fan, or at least make them your second team.
