Default Who here has ever jumped ship on their team?

I am still a Dubs fan. But I have given them my all, all year round, plus the other 20 years or so. But they just don't have it this year and I figured that it would be best to find an alternative team. I have always hated the Lakers because I was always jealous of their success and I was hateful for the fact that the Lakers always ate up the Warriors in every way when they faced each other. But there were a couple of years when I just started to appreciate Kobe and couldn't help myself because it seemed like he was pure magic whenever he put the ball in the basket at will. So I developed an interest. An on and off love/hate thing.

There was a time when I hated San Antonio. What's ironic is that I rooted against the Lakers all those years when they won the championship. But they could never win when I rooted for them like last year against OKC when they got bounced. Same as the Spurs. They won whenever I hated them, but they always lost in the playoffs when I rooted for them.

And I see the old Kobe back. It's fascinating. To be honest, I was very excited earlier in the year to see the Lakers play. I thought with Nash, they really would break the 72 win season, like MWP said. But then they started to suck so I thought the hell with em, I never liked em anyways. But now they are just rolling. And the Dubs don't deserve my respect because they fail to show up. So now I have 2 teams to root for, but when the Dubs lose I already expect it. But at least get to admire Kobe's unstoppable offense. Lakers have 2 old guys in Kobe and Nash. Gotta appreciate before they retire.

I live in GB so technically I should be a bucks fan

but the bucks are ****king terrible

I dont really have a 'team' I just cheer for individual players, so if say the lakers met the heat in the finals, I would just enjoy the show and may the best team win.

I'm a Warriors fan at my core. But they cannot win games right now, so I have to find my back up options to root for because I love the game so much.

Right, so you picked one of the most stacked teams of all time to root for.

I'd suggest the Rockets or the Nuggets. Great to watch and they actually can win games.

Oh no. I choose Kobe because he knows how to father players. He makes players feel like queens and fathers the entire scene.

Your not a Warriors fan at all, not a true fan anyways. You constantly bitch and moan about them and now your talking about jumping ship and I presume its to the Lakers just because your team is losing some games YET THEY ARE STILL IN THE PLAYOFFS.

The Warriors won't miss you if you jump ship, and I don't think to many other fan bases would really want you their either.


So as the first response said:

Don't give up on your team, dude.

I've tried. I went to a small college in New England with no TV or internet access on campus. Then, I moved 2000 miles away. I've seen them play a dozen times in two years. And I still care. It can't be helped. You'll always be a Warriors fan. I'll always be a Wizards fan, even though they're not willing to spend money to win, and can't draft a good player.

Your team actually has a future. If Bogut gets healthy and as good as he was in Milwaukee, and your young guys continue to improve, you're a championship contender in 2 years. That's a much better future than most other teams. You have a great coach too.

What the f*ck does that even mean?

I imagine you've "chosen" Kobe a couple of weeks into your "OMG I LOVE THE WARRIORS" campaign and have been building up to this "gut-wrenching change of heart" for a while now.

I mean honestly, people don't have better things to do? Go have a wank Shady, and calm down.
