Wow it's a slow news week. We're about 6 weeks away from the preseason, Dave is writing posts about Lonely Island songs that have absolutely no point (but are hilarious nonetheless), there are multiple front-page posts about Jason Quick leaving the Blazers' beat with Oregonian, and the news that caused the most stir this week was us getting dissed by a guy from the Portland Tribune (which also made the front page, for reasons passing understanding). So, let's get into something less Blazer-centric:
Who is your "other" NBA team? Come on, everyone has one. It's ok. Which team excites you when they're on TV because you love watching them? You like their players or their coach, or maybe you just like their uniforms. For whatever reason, they're your second team.
The beauty of this is that you get to hop allegiances from year to year because you don't have any deep-seeded allegiance to them. The last couple years I liked the Nuggets because they were deep, fun, fast, I loved the Manimal and Andre Iguodala and they had juuuust enough crazy to make things fun. I got to root heavily for the Spurs in the playoffs. I already know who my other team is going to be this year: the Golden State Warriors. Between the Splash Brothers, Iggy, Andrew Bogut, Mark Jackson and their style of play I'm going to love every nationally televised game of theirs. But if they lose? Oh well. If Bogut's ankles don't hold up? I won't lose any sleep over it.
So who's your "other" NBA team?
