So...Now that the Rockets aren't in the playoffs, who will you cheer for?
The Miami bandwagon rolled off a long time ago, and I wouldn't want to catch a ride with them anyway. The Lakers bandwagon is always full, but they have that Championship trailer in tow that always has room for the Kardashians and the robofans who can only form an opinion of a team once they've made it to the finals. Celtics, eh, trading away Perkins was the equivalent of tearing a leaf off the Shamrock, and that just looks silly.
Mavs, never. Spurs...welll...never.
In the East, I like the Bulls. Really, I just enjoy watching Rose dominate games but their play takes me back to the days I grew up watching MJ on WGN. So there's some child-hood sentimental value in my support of the Bulls.
In the West, I like OKC. Westbrook and Durant can dominate. They stole Perkins from Boston and added more size to a young roster that has become increasingly strong. And the team they're likely to face in the first round, the Nuggets are playing great and I can't help but admire the Nuggets team and organization for keeping everything together after the Melodrama.
Any teams I've overlooked or overrated?
