List Rules Please vote for the teams currently playing that you like the most.

If you're an NBA fan, the odds are extremely likely that you have a favorite team you support. That includes the most-passionate die hard loyalist to the run-of-the-mill fair weather fan. Even if you cheer for your favorite player, he plays for a team so it would be impossible not to pick that as your favorite basketball team. A lot of frontrunning basketball fans tend to cheer for glamorous teams like the Los Angeles Lakers or the Miami Heat. While the Lakers have had the biggest gulf between ardent diehards and fair weather fans, the Heat fan base makes them look like the most loyal fans in the league. Lots of people will say that the Lakers are their favorite team based primarily on LeBron James and their history of winning NBA titles.

People's favorite NBA team could be the one that is closest to where they live. In cities that have more than one team, this can be a challenge, most notably in New York and Los Angeles. Even so, this is a better subscribed theory than people rooting for the team that wins championships. It's up to you to decide what the most popular NBA team is. All basketball franchises weren't created equally and here's your chance to have a say and make sure your favorite basketball team is represented!
