Default Re: Is NFL football the only North American sport where....

In basketball its most likely a player that make/made you a become a fan of that/his team, no matter what a "strict team fan" will tell you this is the truth by majority.... In a player im a fan of a specific skillset/talent/gamestyle.... its pure shooting, guys like Reggie, Ray, Bird and i like also super versatile games like Magic, Bird, Lebron, Pippen, Penny etc...

Unlike NFL (and soccer) a basketball player can single handedly literally dominate the game, yes it is a team game, but much less dependant on it than what NFL is....
A single player in NFL cant just "catch fire" and take that egg ball slithering his way to 50 touchdowns and win the game...
A single player cant control the game whenever he wants to...
A single players immense talent/skill over other players doesnt matter even close to as much as it does in basketball....

NFL is 100% dependant on a team game/team play.... Basketball is aswell but due to the 5 vs 5 matchup, the different rules and as an individual being able to control the ball from being deflected much better than in soccer or NFL it makes it possible for individuals to shine.... but basketball can also be a much more team play dependant game aswell than any sport at the same time depending on strategy/style of that team...

Its spontanious, versatile, filled with flash/drama/action/excitement/scoring/plot twists from a team standpoint or individual standpoint etc....

Hence why basketball > anything...

Orlando has no NFL team, but I root for the Dolphins, all Florida sports teams are terrible besides the Heat and the Gators.
