Default Time for me to come clean

I've always lived in Chicago but I never liked Jordan so I wasn't a Bulls fan, instead I was a Heat fan. Dwyane Wade was from Chicago and he played for the Heat and Shaq is my favorite player all time so I was a Heat fan.

Then Rose was drafted by the Bulls and I've always wanted to be a Bulls fan but I was afraid what the real Bulls Fans would think after all I said when I rooted for the Heat so I kept it on the downlow in real life and made this account on ISH.

When LeBron signed with the Heat was when I decided not to be a Heat fan anymore and ride with the Bulls.

Am I considered a good and loyal fan of my team and my city?

Who were you rooting for between 98 and 2003?

You can root for whoever you want. People don't care who you root for depending if you actually discuss basketball, don't dickride a player, and don't troll.

If you're from Chicago, and want to be a Bulls fan, there is nothing wrong with that. You can also be happy for the Heat when they win without actually being a fan of them, although the Heat have a history with Chicago.

In the context that you put it in, no.

I'm the exact opposite. I've been a Bulls fan since 82. I liked the Heat and Hornets when they joined the league. I too liked Shaq. Dwyane Wade was born around the corner from me in Washington Park. So I rooted for him in the Finals in 2006. Got to go to the party he threw here.

When lebron came, I didn't care for the Heat much anymore. I used to like Rony Seikely (sp?), Tim Hardaway, Zo, Juwan Howard (the first run there) and all those guys like Glen Rice etc.

But the main team was my Bulls. I will always be a Bulls fan.

You dont have to be from a state to like a team in that state. I go for Orlando and I live in Alabama, for example. As long as you dont d-ride.

I'd say you were an NBA fan but not a diehard fan

NBA fan- Love of the game

Diehard fan- Undying loyalty to their team

Who cares? Just root for whatever makes you happy/enjoy the game. I don't really mind "band-wagoners".

Bandwagonners are OK as long as they aren't frontrunners

I don't understand. "I never liked Jordan, so I was a Heat fan because of Wade"

Like someone else said, who did you cheer for before Wade went to Miami then? There's a big time gap here.

I was always a die hard fan of HBK but when he retired I rooted for The Rock. Does this make me a bad person? Maybe.

You must denounce Wade and the Miami Heat and in the future never waver in your loyalty for the Bulls even if you dislike a player, coach, gm, or owner. If people ask why you used to be a Miami fan, just say you were young and didn't know any better.
