Show which teams you were rooting for and the result. Don't gotta bother with explanations, but I decided to provide my own.

Start wherever you want. I'm gonna start from 2000. Bolded are the teams I rooted for and result:

2000 - Pacers: It's MILLER time! I wanted Reggie to finally get a ring and I didn't care for the Lakers. Lost.
2001 - 76ers: Fan of Iverson and was happy after that electrifying game 1 win to keep the Lakers from sweeping the playoffs. Lost.
2002 - Lakers: Didn't really like the Nets all that much. Thought they were boring - but then I was only 15 years old. Won.
2003 - Spurs: Still didn't like the Nets, but I did like the Spurs. Won.
2004 - Pistons: I've always liked Rip, and I was tired of the Lakers at this point. Won.
2005 - Pistons: Enjoyed the Pistons over the Spurs. Lost.
2006 - Heat: Big fan of Wade. Had to root for him. Won.
2007 - Cavs: Rooted for the Cavs obviously. Loved LeBron. Lost
2008 - Celtics: KG is my favorite player of all time, was happy he got a ring. Won.
2009 - Lakers: Hated the Magic with a passion. Could never root for Turkoglu, Lewis, Alston, Nelson, etc... Plus it was nice seeing Kobe get another ring. Won.
2010 - Celtics: Had to root for KG. Lost.
2011 - Mavs: Would've rooted for anyone other than the Heat. I did like the Mavs too. Won.
2012 - Thunder: Same - anyone but the Heat. I did like the Thunder too. Lost.
2013 - Spurs: Anyone but the Heat. Lost.
2014 - Spurs: Anyone but the Heat. Won.
2015 - Cavs: Obviously my favorite team. Lost.
2016 - Cavs: Same. BEAT THOSE MFERS DOWN!
2017 - Cavs: Same. Lost - KD gonna cupcake.

Finals rooting record: 9 wins, 9 losses.

Didn't really like LeBron until I saw how much hate he got during his Decision to Miami. Couldn't blame the guy for having terrible teammates and a franchise that took his greatness for granted. Just amazed at how the guy has grown so far. If you had to pick the most perfect career, LeBron is probably the guy.

What do you mean? If we are picking careers, I'd probably most want to have Bill Russell's lol. Second would be Michael Jordan, third Magic Johnson.

In terms of handling on/off, I'll take LeBron's. The guy has been on the spotlight for 18 years and has never put himself in a position of hardcore negative attention.

You'd want to be diagnosed with HIV and miss about a third of your potential career before a weird 32-game comeback like Magic, rather than being an objectively more talented and durable player like LeBron?
