Default Does your favorite player represent you or your generation?

Been reading this board for awhile and it seems that most posters have a favorite player, ie kobe fans or lebron fans etc. I rarely see someone who just appreciates ever player and the game itself.

With that said, does your favorite player represent you and your generation or does your favorite player change every 8-10 years depending on who comes into the league. Seems to be that an MJ fan isn't going to like a Kobe fan, a Kobe fan isn't going to like a Lebron fan and a Lebron fan might not like a KD fan. Is it a fear that their hero of their generation will be over taken by a younger and possibly better player?

** Ok basically what i was saying is that people like who is a mirror image of their own personality for the most part. Ie. Dwight lovers are probably the class clown, Kobe lovers are probably center of attention types or selfish. I can go on and on with different players, but that was my main point. My second point i was trying to make was the obvious, that people tend to like their own generation more than the next. **

Probably shoulda just hit the edit button but thought what I'm about to say deserved it's own response. I think a lot of who consider to be your favorite player is almost a mere image of who you are as a person in real life. I notice a lot of my kobe friends are more "i need to be center of attention" types and are a little more selfish in general. My lebron friends are a lot more laid back and usually a wingman if we are at the bars. My MJ friends are a lot more old school, like's older genres of music and seem to appreciate hard work by their peers and themselves. All my friends who ever liked the Marburys and Iversons of the world were always more of acqaintences and for the most part were douchebags in general.

Was gonna edit my grammar, but im too lazy. Yea i use to be a C-webb fan.

If I was like my favorite player I'd basically be the opposite of myself.

My favorite players are Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Jason Kidd, Tony Parker, Charles Barkley, and Derrick Rose. In a sense, I pretty much have a personality type similar to these guys, except Chuck. lol

TOP 3

1. Michael Jordan

2. Scottie Pippen

3. Derrick Rose (will eventually be #2)

These players do represent me because they are old-school, and I am too. The most beautiful thing in sports can be simply just letting your game do the talking for you.

Besides always being a Bulls fan, as a kid I loved Shaq and Penny big time, and Kevin Garnett, and i always had some mad respect for Mike Bibby trying to take on the 2000's Lakers by himself at times in the crunch.

But then I grew up and realized supporting your hometown team and the players on your team is more important than anything. Its more rewarding to go through the ups and downs with your squad instead of jumping ship like so many bandwagon fans of the world.

I have plenty of friends born and raised in Chicagoland that are die hard Bulls fans but have pathetic obsessions for Kobe which turned them into Bulls/Laker fans.... that shit does not cut it for me. You win and lose with your team, you don't have a backup team you also like that you can root for when your hometown team loses, especially when you only like that team cuz of 1 player.

If i had to pick another team to watch for fun, it might be GS cuz i like Monta and Stephen.

So basically, what you're saying is Kobe Fans are delusional? All you need is about a week of reading the front page headlines to know that much. And yes, Kobe's delusional too. He actually believes every shot he throws up is going in, no matter what spot on the court, or who's guarding him.


Magic and Jordan fan for the Old School, Duncan, AI and KG for the "Last" school, Wade, Durant and Rose for the New School.

Honorable mention J-Lin for the underdogs of the world (remembering my childhood days).

Default Re: Does your favorite player represent you or your generation?

wenll my favorite player has been kobe since i was like 10... i have always been a lakers fan and i just liked him more than shaq before them i liked eddie jones when he played for the lakers but kobe was really my first fav player.

however this year my new favorite player is ricky rubio. he is the epitomy of a pg to me and extremely unselfish. he plays the game exactly like i try to play the game completely unselfish yet flashy. he is magic esk in that regaurd. bringing out the most in your teammates is exactly what i try and do... kobe just doesnt do that i mean maybe they play a little harder based off of fear of his wrath, but its not the genuine desire timberwolves players have due to rubio. also his game isnt based off athleticism which is always something i appreciate.
