Default Fans love for Hoop players vs other sports

The main sports I follow are the NBA, NFL and MLB. I read various forums and play fantasy sports for all these leagues as well as go to local games. I notice more adult males tend to jock NBA players and wear their jerseys of NBA players as opposed to any other sport. More so, on forums/message boards I see players tend to jock their favorite player to death to a boarder line homo way - i mean see the coach Kobe Gallery thread. My question is, why do fans tend to jock NBA players more than another other sport? It seems that fans tend to cheer for teams in the NFL and MLB, even NHL but NBA they tend to cheer for the player. It's one thing to wear another man's name on your jersey as an adult male, but it's another to be jocking him hard on a message board like he is a hot swimsuit model.
