its the same concept as national pride ...

exactly... you would root for your country because of the pride you have for your country...

Do you take pride in Lebron James?

yes it does... Not everybody in the states has a team in their town to follow. They pick a team and root for it.. very easy thing to comprehend. Even people who live in a town where there is a team? they might like another team, but at least they stick with the team they like thru thick and thin.. They don't jump ship.

no sh*t its a free world fool... What am I threatening legal action against you or something?

calm down and keep the issue in perspective.. nobody said "its not a free world" no need for the extra drama

Yeah you can... pick one and stick with them. its a simple concept

you just dont understand the concept of being a fan...

You follow an American sport, and when an American tells you about the concept of being a fan, you scoff and claim its hubris?

you are getting called out by multiple people in here because you dont understand fandom, and you sound like an idiot... Im trying to help you out, but you will have none of that

it isnt just "my personal opinion"

Fine, brag about about how you bandwagon whatever way the wind blows.. Just dont be surprised when people respond the way they have in this thread

it was actually the Cavs-Pistons series that called my attention to Lebron. when the Suns were pretty much disbanded, that was heartbreak for me. i had to look for another team. thankfully, Lebron gave me a reason to watch the NBA again.
