    Come playoff time when all my other teams are gone, I'm on the Spurs bandwagon. Huge respect.
    Lol, I'm also riding on the Spurs wagon, always do in the playoffs.

    My team B was Houston.

    Lmao, as a montrealer, there is so few media coverage to anything beside the NHL and the Canadiens that it makes any interest in any other sports a marginal interest. The remaining sports coverage (about 10%) is split between soccer, CFL and NFL.

    The only people I know who are basketball fans were basketball players. And the Lakers/heat/Celtics connection is more related to in-store merchandise then basketball interest.



    Really? Where are they at.
    In my area (Little Burgandy) there's a lot.

    I honestly don't have a second favorite team. I have teams that I prefer to cheer for more than others but in the end I just like to see games come down to the wire so during the course of a game between any two teams not named the Raptors I pull for whoever is losing.

    It's interesting to compare this map to the baseball one. Baseball fans seem to have much stronger geographical ties. Lots of regional teams that control huge areas.

    I would be very curious to see a soccer map. I wonder if local MLS teams break through Euro teams, or would the whole US and Canada be just Barcelona, Manchester United, Arsenal and Real.

    Well I took a bet back in 1996 with a friend of mine who was a huge Sonics fan that said that whoever's team would get a ring first would force the loser into spending a full week wearing the winner's jersey EVERYWHERE (home, work, downtown, everywhere).

    For a long time, we were both safe, cheering for losers. Then came Durant, and since then, I've been a massive anti-OKC fan come postseason. Whoever plays them has my unconditionnal support.

    This is very painful, cause it basically means that in addition to that, I also have to cheer for the Heat in case OKC reaches the Finals, cause I don't see any other Eastern team able to take them down. And believe me, it sucks to cheer for the Heat...

    But the minute the Thunder is out, oh boy, I haaaaate the Heat.

    My wettest dream ? Sign KD in 2016, win the bet in 2017 and have him hit the streets with a Durant Raptors jersey on...

    I agree with that, I usually root for the team playing against the one I dislike or the underdog (used to that as a raptor fan).
    Myself (March 2014):
    The raptors are a tremendous young team and will win a championship in the following five years.

    I live in Winnipeg and me and my friends have made the 8 hour drive a couple times to go see the Raps in Minni. There were crazy amount of Raptor fans in the stands this year! The good part about Winnipeg is there is a very large Filipino population and they treat basketball like a religion. So many Laker fans though!

    Cool find, amazing to see how far reaching the raps fan base is. Disappointed, but not surprised that Ottawa is the only major centre in Ontario that doesn't have a majority of raps fans (even more happy to have left that sleepy little town).

    I wonder how accurate this is? I'm assuming the researcher's data is based on Facebook likes.

    This is really cool. Makes sense too because I'm on the east coast of pei and I'm a raptors fan but all my family is Celtics fans. Wonder how that developed.

    Seeing the Lakers dominate W. Canada is not that surprising btw. I live in Vancouver and i know there's a lot of Lakers fans here. Heck, i like the Lakers, they're like my 2nd team. They've been a successful franchise for years. They have the greatest player of this generation in Kobe. And they have Steve Nash who's a BC boy.

    If there's a team that i want to see win the lottery(Wiggins) it's the Lakers. I don't want to see Wiggins in our division.

    Ugh, I hope Wiggins isn't a Laker. That franchise has had enough winning already.

    The draft lottery is Tuesday. It will interesting to see if the Lakers somehow move up and the conspiracy theories start again.

    I predict a top 3 pick for the Lakers!

    If that happens, I hope whoever they draft is a damn bust, they are always good the nba is just on their dick. Like c'mon, give the pick to someone who will actually suck for a couple years and that has sucked for a while now.

    If lakers get Wiggans or something, they got another nba champianship in 2 years, quote me on that
