Does anyone follow it at all?

I've been a diehard Pistons fan since they won their championship in '04, still keep up with their games even though they're pretty average these days.

Watching the playoffs at the moment has been nothing special but once it is culled down to the few contenders it should be good.

I wouldn't say I'm a huge fan, but I follow OKC. Starting watching at the beginning of the season before last, so I'm not a band wagoner ;). I watch about a game per week, good stream permitting.

Haha, good to hear, know a few Thunder fans who are all legit bandwagoners. I can envision a Heat/Thunder finals unless the Lakers take them out.

Struggle to see how they are going to re-sign Westbrook, Harden and Ibaka when their rookie contracts run out soon given cap restrictions though.

Westbrook is already re-signed. Ibaka and Harden on the other hand will be a challenge.

I'm a Mavs fan from back when Steve Nash was a Mav, so last year was great, good on OKC this year though, they are playing very well.

Huge Lakers fan since I was 11. Happens to coincide with the beginning of a dynasty. I still remember the day I pledged my allegiance. Watched a Lakers-Jazz game with my friend from Utah so obviously I went for the opposition. Lakers dicked them 113-67 and my obsession carried on from there. 5 championships later i'm a bigger fan than ever.

OKC are my designated bandwagon team for 2011-12 though. Will be an interesting match up next series assuming the Lakers wrap it up tomorrow in Denver.

I've always been abit of a Spurs man. Loved watching Horry play for them and also Ginobli and Parker, gave the team an international flavor. I want them to take the West but I feel OKC are the team who will go to the finals, theyve had a better series so far and look good in the 4th. KD unstoppable.

I'm a big NBA fan, the Suns are my favourite team but I also like the Celtics as two of my favourite players in KG and Ray Allen play there along with dudes like Rondo.

Really hope the Celtics get past the Hawks and get a chance at revenge against the Heat, but they will need Paul Pierce healthy to have a chance there as he will match up with Lebron.

I've got either the Spurs or OKC coming out of the West but imo its pretty wide open, I think both the Lakers and the Clipps have legitimate shots too.

Yeah Ibaka and Harden are two of the better young players in the league, if OKC can somehow keep that core of KD, Westy, Harden and Ibaka then they will be sick. Ibaka does not play enough minutes imo and when I see games where he has played 20 mins it leaves me scratching my head.

Does anyone follow it at all?

Got a really nice piece in Monroe to build around, plus Knight looks ok too if he develops and Stuckey is still young and really played well in the 2nd half of the season. You just need to find some other younger pieces in the draft and you will be moving in the right direction. If you could fiind a way to offload BG and CV and their horrible contracts that would be ideal.

Been a huge fan of all things LA and the first NBA game I saw involved the lakers back in the day. Been a big fan ever since. No love for Kobe tho. Respect his achievements dislike the bloke. Fave current player is CP3 so it's safe to say I was gutted when the commish nixed our trade deal pre season.

We may not get along.

We can call it even if you also have no love for LeBron?

They should get past the hawks at home, and move through to the Conf. Finals against the Heat. Should be a good series, I've always thought Rondo was the key to the celtics so hopefully hes running on all cylinders.

LeBron haha he's a choke artist bro. No love no respect either for what he did
Thats all good then.

Never spoken to a Laker fan that dislikes Kobe. I understand other people hating on him because of what he has achieved, and chances are he has single handedly embarrassed their team at some stage in his career but for a Laker fan to not like him? Thats weird.

Ill stick up for that guy through whatever.

Yeah I hope those 2 play in the ECF because if things go the Celtics way then they can definately match up with the Heat. KG generally abuses Bosh, well he certainly has this season though last playoff series Bosh came up trumps. The Celts have a big advantage at PG with Rondo and why I say Pierce health is key is because they need good production from their best scorer to help nulify Lebron and Wade some.

The celtics have 2 good perimeter defenders in Rondo and Bradley too to throw at Wade so the match ups are intriguing but if the Celtics let Miami run then they will be in for a long series, got to make it a half court game because thats when their defence comes into play and Pierce, Allen and KG are much more effective offensively in the half court set.

Iv come across a few on twitter. Mine is less to do with his skills on court more to do with what kinda bloke he comes across as etc. Plus I was a massive Shaq fan

I guess there must be a few but you lot are a rarity. I'm not overly fussed what hes like off the court. If he wins games he can do what he wants. It probably doesn't help Kobe's case that he doesn't really share much of his life outside of basketball to the public. I'd say a certain allegation in 2003 has something to do with that.

I love'd Shaq when he was a Laker, to think what could have been if they had stayed together another 3 or 4 years. Although in saying that, we probably wouldn't have a future superstar in Andrew Bynum like we do now. Bit of maturity and that kid will be in DH12's league.

Agreed. Drew can be anything he wants to be. He's got that ability and size. Just need to get that maturity and experience.

Don't get me wrong, I like having Kobe on the team, I just don't like him haha. There's always gonna be blokes on any team I support that I don't like. But I'm glad they are there.

Game 5 was a blip aye bro. We just wanted to get mettas suspension out the way before the real challenge begins haha

Bynum is a beast, The difference is Kobe takes up his limelight while howard is the star forward in the east, Bynum is going to be on another level to Howard. he's destined for greatness if he keeps maturing and developing his game

There has been in the past. Faumauina springs to mind. Always thought he was a bit of a dickhead even before his high profile public display

Yea man, just a little slip so Metta can be there for game 1. It's what Stern would want.

I'd be lying if I said I want a little worried though.
