    I need a NBA team

    I want to follow the NBA. I have never had a favorite NBA team. Maybe for a little while I sort of liked the TWolves.. IDK. Sell me on what team I should follow.

    Maybe if OKC keeps DG they would be a good choice.

    Re: I need a NBA team

    I would have advocated the Utah Jazz, but then they chose Deron Williams over Jerry Sloan, so they are dead to me now.

    It's been rigged for decades, anyway. I finally wised up and stopped giving them my dough for parking, tickets, concessions, apparel... hell, I don't even watch on TV anymore. **** the NBA.


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    I'm waiting for an ISU great to be a stud before I have a favorite team.

    Golden St, they will get up and down the floor and score a lot of points. Curry is fun to watch and Harrison Barnes could be in for a big year.

    Re: I need a NBA team

    Been a lifelong NBA fan myself. If you're starting from scratch though, Minnesota has a team that will be very fun to watch for the next 5 years if they stay together.

    I'd be down with another bulls supporter, but as long as you don't pick Miami your cool.

    Re: I need a NBA team

    Think I saw something just a few minutes ago that Diante got waived by OKC. Personally, you can find something better to watch/get involved with than the NBA. But if you HAVE to, make it Golden State for reasons stated above. Plus, Oakland needs you.


    All people who make sweepingly generalized, stupid, uninformed comments are idiots.

    (maybe)

    Re: I need a NBA team

    I like watching any teams as long as its fun to watch. As mentioned above GS and MIN are young and fast. As Rulzzz said, don't pick the heat.

    I plan on going to some Mavs games this year, but lets be honest, they suck. I will try and go when good teams play here.

    Re: I need a NBA team

    I second DA BULLS. D Rose looks to be somehow quicker than before his injury and his jumper is 10x better. He could challenge LBJ for a MVP if he continues to play this well. The best part about DA BULLS is that they actually play the game the way it's supposed to be played...defense first. Every player gives 110% all game, and that comes straight from Coach Thibs. Coach Thibs and CFH are very similar guys in some aspects and he is an easy guy to like. I have found myself watching more and more of their games because of guys like D Rose and Noah. Noah plays with more energy and heart than anyone in the NBA. If he played for an opposing team, I would hate him. Deng is one of the more underrated players in the game and Jimmy Butler is quickly become a star. If I were you I would start cheering for them but I may be a little bias!

    Re: I need a NBA team

    I actually like not having a favorite team, that way I can pick any team to root for once the playoffs start and if that team gets eliminated I can just pick another team.

    If you must pick a team, I'd watch a few games of teams you think you might like and just pick the one you like watching the most.

    The Clippers could be an interesting team this year.

    Re: I need a NBA team

    Sixers. If you can get through this year which will be historically bad. They will likely have a top 3 pick and another lottery pick from New Orleans in a loaded draft. They also have Michael Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel to grow with. They will also have a crap ton of cap space (Kevin Love Im hoping).

    Re: I need a NBA team

    I'm partial, but I think I'd just stick with Minnesota. They are one of the few teams left this year that won't feel like you're jumping on an established bandwagon, but will still be fun to watch and competitive.
