Lots of discussions about one Warrior player or another, who to trade, who to draft, who to play... and then you watch the Lakers.
OMG. That is an actual team. With an actual coach. And, real owners and management. A proud and focused franchise. Hot women in the expensive seats, it is all good.
Fakers? No, really, that would be the Ws in all the so many ways we have discussed.
I have been rooting for the locals for years, the Ws, the 49ers, even the Raiders for awhile, the Giants, even the A's back when. Great. I have been enabling incompetent rich owners and suffering from uncounted losses and disappointments. I envy the fans of successful teams and want to be just like them.
It is time to support winners and raise my self-esteem. It is depressing to be a fan of constant losers. The Laker fans, for example, are accused of being shallow front-runners. Yet, their team keeps winning and their fans seem happy. It must be fun to have your teams win all the time, to read the favorable statistics, to bask in their glory and to be able to insult the fans of losing teams.
Ws fans are "the best", supposedly more dedicated and knowledgeable, yet we support mediocracy. What does that make us? Smarter than Laker fans? Hmmm.
So, I am dedicating my life to being a front-runner. Whatever team is winning and winning in an interesting way is now my team. I will buy supportive T-shirts and join their forums. I will date very young and hot women and make out my credit cards so I can sit on the front row with them. Life will be better. I will feel the elation of victory and will not suffer the humiliation of defeat over and over and over. It is time.
So, which teams should I switch my allegience to?
Basketball: the Lakers are clearly the best and most interesting team now and have a history that promises continued success.
Baseball: The Dodgers are the best right now, and reasonably close geographically, but there is always the success and interesting dynamics of the Yankees. I like their striped shirts, too. There is no denying the passion of Boston and St Louis fans...
Football: the NFL is, in my very minority opinion, a dull league with most coaches trying not to lose rather than trying to win. They all follow each other and make the same decisions so they can't be criticized.
I'll take suggestions on this one.
Thank you for listening. I feel better already.
Talk about anything general in the NBA here.

It's never too late to start that campaign!
though it should have happened once they started snubbing Mullin...
and even earlier as they started to dismantle the 06-07 team instead of building upon it. talk about f*cking up an opportunity...

As far as I know Cohan has spent the bucks to produce a decent roster ... Rowell has just been a knucklehead on how to spend it (the Jamal Crawford deal ... resigning Jackson of all people ... the Foyle buyout ... could of brought a better talent in return). If you follow a team only when it wins, that makes you a bandwagon fan ... I guess we won't hear from your for about 10 years.
Sports is the original reality tv, it is unscripted (did anyone pick Warner and the lowly Cardinals as a Superbowl contender) and moments like "We Believe" or the Gibson Homer off Eck is what makes it worthwhile.
Right now we could be talking about Pietrus the Kobe stopper, if Stan could coach and leave an injured Nelson on the bench, or if Jameer could learn to foul a Fisher without giving him an open look, or if superhype could shoot some free throws. Now we are giving Kobe, Fisher and Philip tons of love.
The Giants have a great rotation ... I hate the bullpen, but homegrown talent with very selective free agency or trades is the key for the Warriors, Giants, Niners.
The future is bright, Nellie will be gone in two years, we have nice young players (Biedrins, AR, Ellis, our pick, Morrow ...possibly BW and BElli)... LO is leaving the Fakers, Fisher is getting slower (with only an injured Nelson giving him open looks), other teams are aging, and teams like Cleveland are looking to axe the coach of the year Mike Brown for aspiring billionaire sore loser self proclaimed King James.
