It's been a while since we did one of these.

Who is your favorite team and why? & How long have you been a fan?

I'm a Laker fan. I was born and raised in Los Angeles which probably has a lot to do with why I am a fan. It also helps that everyone in my family is a Laker fan as well. I've been a fan since 1999. Really started watching basketball any chance I got around 2002-03 season.

Kings fan here, and we're not moving to Anaheim, San Jose, or Louisville from what the reports have mentioned!

Go Kings!

Mavericks fan.
As a kid I loved Michael Jordan so I was a Bulls fan by default. After Jordan retired I stopped following specific teams and only had favorite players. Then I can vividly remember in 2001 I was staying the night at a friends house for his birthday. His dad was flipping through channels and the Mavericks were playing. Can't remember who they were playing but it was the first time I had seen Nash, Dirk, and Finley. It was such an exciting game and that was the moment that the Mavericks sucked me in. My greatest memories of the NBA were watching the Mavs and Kings go at it in the playoffs. Such exciting series they had... From like 01-04 they played in the playoffs each year. That was the high point of my love for the NBA.

02-22-2011, 05:25 AM

02-22-2011, 05:32 AM
kings fan, became one 9 years ago when they were actually winning and one of the best teams in the league, im not a huge NBA fan so if some day the KIngs actually do win the Championship it really won't be THAT big of a deal to me like the Giants winning the World Series or the 49ers winning the Super Bowl was/will be

02-22-2011, 05:40 AM

Nash is the reason.

I have been a kings fan for about 10 years mainly because of the unselfish style of play they had in the early 2000's

First sporting event I ever watched was the '91 Finals, been a Lakers fan ever since. A couple months later, I saw a commercial featuring Nique dunking like crazy, stuck by the Hawks despite all the crap they put their fans through. :sigh:

I was born in Orlando, moved to Toronto, parents split up; mom is in Orlando, Dad is in NYC, I'm studying at U of T and grandparents in LA... Starting law school at Columbia next year, so I'll be in NYC for pretty much the rest of my life.

I'm currently a Magic fan, I love Kobe and I'll be going to Knicks games soon :D

02-22-2011, 01:08 PM

02-22-2011, 01:15 PM
Can you feel the HEAT down in your soul?

02-22-2011, 01:19 PM
Born and raised in LA. pops was a HUGE Larry bird fan so I can remember being at relative houses for parties and him being the only Boston fan. Kinda started liking em then....

Watched Paul pierce play at inglewood high against my future high school and followed him ever since. However, I was a big kg and ai fan and supported their squads....

When kg got traded to the celtics, it was a match made in heaven.

By the way, I wasn't even allowed to watch the finals last year with my buddies. Apparently I was a little too enthusiastic in 2008.

Currently live in japan which sucks regarding all sports except for baseball

Been a fan of the Grizzlies ever since they moved to Memphis. Been to quite a few games and love what they're doing now. Playing well with high quality guys. Playoffs this season!

02-22-2011, 01:55 PM
Detroit - been a fan since 1986-87 and always will be.

02-22-2011, 02:43 PM
celtics. growing up in the tri state area i never had a favorite team, kg was always my favorite player. so i sorta followed the wolves, then moved to boston for school right around when garnett got traded to the celtics. figured it made some sense to pick up a team.

so the wolves, knicks and to some extent the nets are also close to my heart lol.

Knicks, hometown team. That's all.

02-22-2011, 04:35 PM
I'm 23 years old and have been a fan of the Warriors my whole life(through all the rough years and memorable moments). Born and raised in San Jose, CA!!!!!

02-22-2011, 04:54 PM
Been a Knicks fan ever since I was 6. Grew up around Knick fans so it's only natural I became one.

02-22-2011, 04:55 PM
I like the Bucks. I started to when I really got into Basketball in the early 2000's..2002 I believe. Man its rough since they have been such a poor team year after year it seems, I still love them though. When I was a kid I liked the Magic, because of Penny Hardaway and Disney World. So I still follow them.

02-22-2011, 05:04 PM
I'm more of a college basketball fan than an NBA fan. I'm a die hard Syracuse guy so I've always had a little thing for the Knicks but I've been pretty much just a Melo fan. So I'm a Knicks fan by default after the trade. Melo and Rautins on the same team, enough said.

02-22-2011, 05:17 PM
Dubz fan because I grew up in the Yay

02-22-2011, 05:19 PM

Celtics fan because I've lived in New England my entire life. I've been a fan my whole life, and actually found the crappy, young teams (Jefferson, Rondo, West, Green, Gomes, etc) more fun to watch than the current team.

02-22-2011, 05:32 PM
The Miami Heat.

02-22-2011, 05:39 PM

dont have favorite team, just favortie players on different teams

02-22-2011, 06:39 PM
Phoenix Suns since about the 91-92 season... It was the first time i paid any real attention to professional basketball. And since all of my friends in norther ohio like either the cavs(homers), bulls(jordan),lakers(frontrunners) i wanted to be a little different. So since my favorite color was orange and one day while i was playing basketball a older guys said boy you play like a skinny charles barkley(which at the time made no since charles was short and stocky dude and i was tall and skinny) i was a suns fan ever since.

02-22-2011, 07:28 PM
Portland Trail Blazers. Born and raised in Portland so I've been a Blazer fan pretty much my whole life.
