My apologies, stunted.

It was wholesome a.f. to me. I can't imagine the wild crap the players have heard and seen with the fans sitting literally right next to them. Bro was clearly 100% unfazed by that 12 year old fanning out.

Yeah, I know I was saying that he's probably well skilled at tuning conversations out that happens in those seats. Remember this one :ROFL:

How did you guys pick your fav NBA team?  All my other sports rooting interests are geography based.  The Timberwolves would be my best option I suppose, because I spend increasingly more time in MN.

I've had about half the league at one time or another as a favorite NBA team and it's always tied to a player. I currently don't have a favorite but in my lifetime that mantle has gone to, in order
Philadelphia
Chicago
Phoenix
Minnesota
Boston
Minnesota again
Oklahoma City
Golden State
I'd love to pick New Orleans as my new favorite, but the big boy can't stay on the court

I picked mine out of spite.  It was '93 everyone loved the Bulls so I became a Suns fan.

I was a Knicks fan back then for the same reason. Since then golden state is my favorite but only because of Steph. Who cares if he's not there.

If you’re compelled to pick a team, pick whichever ownership group you like best.

I’d put this in the proper nowell thread but don’t want to take away from the games there.

Quote
DALLAS -- The home crowd loudly booed at the American Airlines Center during a timeout midway through the third quarter Friday night, when the Dallas Mavericks trailed the Charlotte Hornets by 18 points.

"We probably should have been booed in the first quarter," Mavericks coach Jason Kidd said after a 117-109 loss to an undermanned Charlotte team that dropped Dallas (36-38) to 11th place in the Western Conference standings, a spot out of the play-in scenario.

Dallas is 7-12 since All-Star guard Kyrie Irving joined the team following a blockbuster trade with the Brooklyn Nets that Mavs management hoped would boost their chances to contend this season. That includes 3-7 when Irving and Doncic, who have both dealt with nagging injuries, are in the starting lineup together.

Irving scoffed at what he called "the pretty words that sports loves to put in, like hope and concern," saying that an adjustment period was anticipated after a major midseason trade. The injuries to Doncic and Irving, who has missed a total of four games due to right foot soreness, have complicated that process.

Nevertheless, Irving attributed the Mavs' poor start against the Hornets to a lack of energy.

"We're a very poised group on days where I feel like we put in the best effort, and then on days where kind of the energy falters or we don't start off well or the offense isn't going or people aren't making shots, there could be some emotional pulling in other directions that can dictate the outcome of games," said Irving, who had 18 points, nine rebounds and seven assists but shot poorly (6 of 16 from the floor, including 1 of 8 from 3-point range).

"And we're still feeling each other out in a way of getting used to each other's efforts and attitudes and temperament. And that's a real thing. That's a human thing. That's a human element. Whether people believe it in basketball or not, there's a very fine line between winning basketball games and everyone being on the same page and losing basketball games and things splintering and pointing fingers."

As much as Kidd considered the boos deserved, Irving considered the fans' reaction to be irrelevant.

"So? So what? Just the way I feel about it," Irving said. "I've been in New York City, so I know what that's like. You obviously want to play well, but it's only five people on the court that can play for the Dallas Mavericks. If the fans want to change places, then hey, be my guest. Got years of work ahead to be great enough to be on this level. But our focus isn't necessarily on the boos. It should be on our performance and just being there for each other."

I'm surprised that Dameshek didn't do that in a blaccent while mixing in some ebonics. Growth. Onward and upward.
