Thread: Who are you 2nd and 3rd favorite teams?

  1. #1

    Default Who are you 2nd and 3rd favorite teams?

    No team comes close to the love I feel for the Pacers, but I really enjoy watching Portland and Golden State. Portland has two of my favorite players players in the league in Batum and Aldridge, and I've loved watching Golden State for the past 5+ years. Seeing some high-scoring offense is a breath of fresh air in comparison to watching the Pacers this year. Plus Curry is having an awesome year.

    Do you guys like any other teams besides the Pacers?

    I enjoy great shooters so I naturally enjoyed the Mavericks and the Suns for the past few years.

    In NBA 2K I've played several MyPlayer seasons as a member of the Rockets, the Jazz and the Bucks so I tend to like those teams a bit as well.

    Also, due to Agalloch and Wolves in the Throne Room I became enamoured with the Cascadian region so I have started to like the teams that come out of Oregon and Washington.

    Last but not least, I have a deep respect for the San Antonio Spurs' of basketball. The way they scour all over the world for talent is just what I hope the Pacers would do. FAs aren't coming here? Good. Find cheap internationals then to fill out your roster and strengthen the bench. There are a lot of NBA talents out there that are yet to be discovered.

    So, to recap. We have Mavericks, Suns, Rockets, Jazz, Bucks, Blazers, Spurs and the upcoming Seattle team (if the Kings relocate there).

    That's it

    Spurs, Grizzlies. And to be honest I'm only so so on the Grizzlies. Anytime you play defense, and team oriented basketball. Im impressed. Too much superstar ball in the NBA. May as well play 3v3 and eliminate teammates all together.

    I like the Thunder, mainly Durant. I haven't really watched too much of them this year, but I like what the Blazers have. I really like Damian Lillard. I was watching them against the Heat last night and they honestly reminded me of the Pacers. They've got a pretty solid starting 5 moving forward. If I had to pick another team I'd say the Rockets.

    I loved the Mavs for a long time cause of Dirk. I was genuinely upset when they lost to Golden State. I'm a big Heat fan since they got LeBron. I don't know why but I've also always really liked the Rockets for some reason. Maybe because of Hakeem and I like their uniforms.

    Since my career path would send me to Los Angeles, and I could never root for the Lakers, I would call the Clippers my second team. My earliest exposure was playing NBA Jam "back in the day" and picking Lamar Odom because his stats were all evened-out. As opposed to picking a superstar whose name I wouldn't know at the time.

    Also, MyPlayer got drafted by the Denver Nuggets, which was great as a shooting guard, because the roster was awesome: Lawson, Iggy, Chandler, Faried, McGee is an incredible video game line-up. I played well enough to get into the starting lineup, with a 3-man wing rotation between myself, Iggy, and Chandler. For these reasons, and a few others, the Nuggets are probably my third team. Ironically, myself and Faried got traded to the Clippers for (dammit) Blake Griffin, and CP3 had already been traded. So the team kinda sucked then, until I started Lebroning us (literally) in and out of the playoffs. I'm on my contract year, and I'm trying to decide between staying loyal with the team I've worked hard with, signing with Indy for whatever money, or going with the highest contract I'm offered.*

    I also like the Nets, simply because Deron Williams is one of my favorite players, and my brother currently lives in Brooklyn. He's a blue-and-gold-bleeding Pacers fan to the death of him, but he's taking advantage of his proximity (as I did with Orlando before I just hated them), and repping the Nets hard while he's in NYC. So I'll root for them when necessary.



    * sorry for the MyPlayer rant. I take that game a little too seriously.

    Boston, mostly because of my near Larry Bird worship and the entertainment I get watching Rondo play. Also Housten, I think because I'm so starved for points watching Pacers games sometimes that the exact opposite gives me a balance. Plus I love seeing a potentional guy play up to his talent *coughpaulgeorgecough*, ala James Harden.

    My brother got Clippers season tickets when they got Blake and got incredibly lucky that they turned out to be so exciting. Naturally getting the chance to see them so much, they're my second favorite team. Number 3 this season has to be the Warriors, Steph and Klay are just a joy to watch.

    I follow players mostly.

    Second and Third would be Lakers and Spurs probably, but I like watching Houston a lot.

    Umm... I'm not a fan of other teams obviously (I'd never actively root for another team other than the Pacers), but I do like to watch Houston (they score a ton of points and play no defense... so the exact opposite of Indiana), and Rubio is fun to watch so I try and catch a Timberwolves game every now and then on league pass.

    I like Durant so I guess the thunder, but I like memphis because they are built in a similar way to the Pacers

    The Bulls, except when they are playing the Pacers. There, I said it.

    Having said that, the 2011 playoffs really tested my Chicago mettle. Love the team but they have some incredibly $h!*ty fans.
