Default If you jump on a bangwagon....

and then the team becomes horrible, but you're still a fan...

Does that make you a legit fan?

I jumped on the VC bandwagon a long time ago. Also always liked Bosh since he was at GT. Plus their jerseys were always sweet looking.

Possibly, but this scenerio would be the equivalent of "man bites dog".

Bandwagon fans typically move on to the next bandwagon.

If you stay with the team when they're terrible, I guess.

Well, we all have to start somewhere I guess.

Were you a fan of other franchises before the Raptors?

depends on the history behind the organization at that point in time. If bandwagoners have nothing to be proud of after a franchise goes down the drain for years, they'll probably move on. However, if it's a franchise like the Lakers/Celtics/Bulls, you'll get a few bandwagoners that call themselves fans.

When I first learned about basketball i read about Larry Bird and became a Celtics fan when they were terrible with Paul Pierce. They traded for Ray Allen and Garnett and i was pissed b/c they traded Jefferson my favorite player.

Anyways I am a closet Celtic fan but I dont want everyone to know I am a fan, b/c they might consider me a bandwagoner( I live in Las Vegas not Boston), am I a real fan?

Certainly yes if you stuck by the team for this long, especially the lean years of the mid/late 90's.

And I agree on Big Al - he was my favorite too. At least the squeezed a title out of it.

No such thing as a real fan. Stop this nonsense.
