Any fans of the Celts that live in rural areas? I'm sure there more NASCAR fans than Celtics or NBA fans.

Boston is a Red Sox town. The Pats, Celtics, and Bruins are only relevant when they are winning, while the Sox are relevant no matter what.

The Pats maybe eclipsed the Sox during their era of dominance 5 years ago, but now the Sox have forged ahead again.

Basically:

1. Red Sox

2. Pariots


3. Celtics



4. Bruins

For me personally though, the Celts are my team.

They have been around before the NBA, BAA as the Celtics back then in the 20's were a Professional North American Touring Team and the days of Bill Russell and Red Auerbach had cumulated to the Celtics taking a mythical status in the old NBA days, therefore, a part of NBA lore.

It's worth mentioning that the Celtics have less International fans as well. Countries like Australia (where I'm from) appreciate the Celtics though. Australia is a very blue-collar type of country, and most basketball fans here prefer the Celtics to the Glitz and Glamour of the 'Hollywood' Lakers.

In saying that, I think Australia is in the minority in this area.

That interesting brodiejay. I don't think the Celtics are as popular as teams like Rockets and Lakers are worldwide.

I wanted to say is there any poll that shows which Boston team has the most fans? It would be interesting and like to know what demographic.

I dont know of any such poll, but having lived here my whole life I can assure you that the Red Sox are the most popular team.

I would agree but I think the Patriots and Celtics have more younger fans than Red Sox. Off topic but that Sting the wrestler right?

On the subject of the Red Sox, haven't they sold out something like 650+ straight games? I'd say the Celtics are pretty popular in Connecticut, even without counting all the bandwagon fans that hopped on a few years ago.

I think the sellout streak is around there but close. Celtics have lots of loyal fans but lot of bandwagon. Not bad compare to Patriots or Red Sox for fairweather fans.

If were looking demographic, Celtics may have the most fans in the black demographic.
