Like:
1. Clippers. Fan since 1992. I had moved to SoCal a couple years earlier and my mom knew a player's mom. Yeah Chris Paul goes chasing a ring but I don't like the Griffin trade and apparently DeAndre Jordan didn't like the team being blown up around him.
2. Bulls. Used to be a big fan, having grown up in Chicago, so from the 70s until 1999 I was a fan, but walked away when the management broke up the team. I still am on their side since I have relatives there but don't follow them. Markennan played a year at Arizona and is doing good for the Bulls so that gets me to pay a little attention.

Dislike:
1. Lakers. The Dallas Cowboys of the NBA. Enough "history" to get LBJ to try to revive a team that hasn't made the playoffs in 5 years.
2. Warriors. They are from No Cal. Natural enemy but when this cycle is over and they are irrelevant again, I won't care as much.
3. Houston. Harden.
4. (since I only took two liked teams) Dallas, because of the DJ stuff but mostly because they are from Texax.

Revised list after recent history.

Like: Bulls, Spurs, Lakers (Magic, and fans have learned some humility even if still overly optimistic)

Pity: Knicks (owned by dolans)

Hate: Used to be Knicks and Lakers but things have changed.

Can't hate GS, too much class even if I don't like the player stacking and the fans that act like they just reached up a girls shirt for the first time and are about that age.

Moderately like with a passing glance:


Timberwolves
Celtics


Have always disliked and now with the "GOD" LeBron giving me more reason to dislike:


Lakers


When it comes to basketball, the NBA bores me to tears. I watch college.

Like:

Pacers - Live in Indianapolis, this is my team.

Grizzlies - I don't know why, going back to the days of Stromile Swift and Shane Battier they've been my number 2.

Dislike:

Bulls - Yes, the MJ thing. Also, when the Bulls play in Indy the Bulls fans at the game are tools.

Pistons - I was indifferent to the Pistons really until the Malice at the Palace. F*** em.

Knicks - Despite it not being 1995 anymore, they're still the Knicks. Hibbert over Melo was very satisfying.

I think it's funny that you hold Malice against the Pistons but not the Pacers.

Why would I hold the behavior of Pistons fans and Stern's unfair punishments against the Pacers? Reggie Miller wasn't throwing chairs at people.

That's funny because I have a hard time watching college basketball because of how dirty many of the programs are.

I'm with you on that one. Until March madness, I'm following my alma mater, U. of South Dakota, and a couple other regional colleges like Iowa, Nebraska, and Briar Cliff (small NAIA school my cousin's kid plays on). A HUGE % of nationally powerful college programs stink with corruption, "student" athletes that can barely read and will hardly ever see a classroom during their 1 year of college prior to turning pro (Kentucky as a prime example), and narcissistic mega-wealthy win at all cost unscrupulous coaches.
