    Hmmmmmmm I wonder how long you guys have been dubs fans? :holmes:
    I ain't gon lie...I've been with Warriors for 6 minutes. But truth is, I'm really old skul. My die-hard supporting years were exhausted when TSR was barely cracking its milk teeth. I was with Knicks back when Reggie was making counting sheep at night impossible for Ewing and crew. I watched most of my Top 10 members up there actually play then-current seasons. So it's not like I'm a joy-riding fan. I'm now mostly an entertainment-seeking fan, more than a runs-in-the-blood supporter. And which team is more entertaining to watch in the league right now?
    But you got me there...and that gif by @Malevolent couldn't have been more perfectly timed and fitting

    Actually leads nicely onto a discussion as to why you support the team you do. I expect we'll get a lot of people supporting X team cause of a favourite player but we shall see

    Also good news for OKC fans, Westbrook is expected to announce his signing of a contract extension (3 years) today.

    Yup, unless he somehow found his way into the Dubs or Cavs, I'd say it's the best spot for him.

    Oh boy...I can imagine the players on that list. Being a Heat fan, it would come as no surprise if you had clowns like Sam Bowie up there. If someone said their favorite movie of all time is Finding Dory, it would be safe to project that their top 10 films list might be a little underwhelming, no?

    my Top 10:

    1-MJ
    2-SHAQ
    3-Kobe
    4-Lebron
    5-AI
    6-Big O
    7-Melo
    8-The Mailman
    9-Chuck
    10-Grant Hill

    Can't really explain why im a Knick, Maybe because of Melo. but i was a fan before Melo arrived.
    Stephon Marbury and his crossovers attracted me already there.

    Fan of the Knicks now because of Rose as everyone knows. Not too upset really because now there's a good chance I can watch him play, making a trip to Chicago just for the Bulls always had me a bit meh but there's a lot to do in NY I imagine. Hopefully this year or next at the latest Noah is one of my favorite players too and Porzingod is a hit with everyone.
