In the comment section, state which basketball team you follow, and why you love your team!
It really is that easy. Just do that, and in a week (because that's how long the contest goes for!), I'll pick an entry to be the winner.
(note: this is open to anyone, anywhere. You don't have to be a resident of the US to win - as so many contests require!!)
Thanks WithMalice!! I just received my brand-spanking-new SOL Republic headphones. It's like there's a party in my head! I love 'em! This was by far the most rewarding blog entry that I have ever written!
Thanks again, and thank you to SOL Republic!!
Some great responses here, but the one I liked best was from rikstenz.
Loved the line "...the fact of the matter is: even when you live in your mom's basement, it can't get much worse and all you really have to do is move out. C'mon Wolves, time to pack your bags!"
rikstenz - please contact me via the contact form (tab at the top of the page), and we'll organise delivery.
can't get any easier, there is no question that the best team in the world is Celtics. Garnett and Rondo are by far my favourite players and i would never miss a game. i live down under and i budget weekly so i can afford foxtel. i think i would rather starve than miss a game of the celtics. i have been saving for 2 years now so that i can go to boston to see a game. i think it will only take another year. i am so excited. WOOOOOOOOOO LET"S GO CELTICS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Lady Yellow Jackets rom Georgia Tech are my team! I'm a Rambling wreck all day! GO JACKETS!!! As for pro basketball I'll have to say my favorite team is the Hawks. Hometown fan through and through, win or lose. Gotta back the home town team. Oh, by the way, those SOL Republic personal music enhancing devices are sweet! USA! USA! USA!
Miami Heat !My father took me to a game of the Heats and since I've been there I can't think of anything else.
Their mood, their style - it is all perfect and I can't describe it ...I love them an always will !Hope you can understand that and good luck to everybody who participate :)
I remember it like it was yesterday. The year was 1988 and the Minnesota Twins were just coming off of their best season ever which ended in a world series, the Vikings were still middle-of-the-road and I was heavily into the University of Minnesota Gophers ice hockey and basketball. It was all that I knew at the time. I had heard of this Jordan character and of course Larry Bird was always in the mix but it really meant little to me. That all changed in 1989 when the Timberwolves and I enjoyed their inaugural season. I had always heard stories of the Minneapolis Lakers and how they used to run the league until they got shipped off to the Left Coast where they remain successful until today. I really wanted that for Minnesota again, the second coming if you will. After 5 years of struggles of watching the Wolves hang out in the basement of the NBA (it may have well been their mother's basement) even the international help of Luc Longley failed to help us move out and up. That was when it all changed with the 5th overall pick in the 1995 NBA draft of Kevin Garnett. With KG came growing pains aka. Stephon Marbury. However once KG was matched up with Latrelle "Choke Your Coach" Sprewell and Sam "Alien" Cassell (Also known as the 3-Headed Monster), I knew that our time was now. Since the Twins were on their down stroke after winning their 2nd world series in 5 years and who is really going to blame them, and the Vikings kept ending up being a one and done team in the playoffs, now was the time for the T-Wolves........ As we all know this was stopped abruptly by Dirk Nowitzki, Steve Nash and the Mavericks (who later went on to actually win the title in 2006. That was as close as we have gotten. As a Minnesotan scorned by sports teams: The Strikers (soccer team) The Northstars (who went on to become the Dallas Stars and won the Stanley Cup their 1st year in Texas, figures) and eventually even KG, who only took one season to promptly win a title with the Celtics, although I am sure he can't take all of the blame, I have grown accustom to almost expecting to be let down.
Fast forward to 2012, with a big man in Kevin Love, who can shoot the 3 by the way, coming off an injury and our international help Ricky Rubio soon to make an appearance things are looking up. I continue to be a glutton for punishment, that's what all of my sporting years in MN have taught me. The bottom line is that we are poised to make a playoff run, and the fact of the matter is: even when you live in your mom's basement, it can't get much worse and all you really have to do is move out. C'mon Wolves, time to pack your bags!
I've been a Houston Rockets fan my entire life (44 years roughly). I remember my aunt taking me to games back in the 70's against the Denver Nuggets. Loved the championship seasons that finally brought the first really recognized championships to the city of Houston. Loved them through the great years and the pitiful ones. They will always be my team.
Well I really just follow players. So I go with the Timberwolves. Josh Howard and Alex Shved, throw in some AK-47 and JJ Berea and you have a team I can enjoy watching. But you know I'm still a King James fan, soooooo......
I've followed the Nets ever since I was a boy growing up in the suburbs of New Jersey. Now, I live in Atlanta and have grown fond of the Hawks as well. So I was excited when talks of Joe Johnson being traded to Brooklyn were made final. Now I get the best of two places on one team. We're lookin' really good this year especially after that OT victory against the Knicks. It's gonna be a heated division this year! Let's Go Neh-Ehts!!
