Ignore sky he can be a bit passive aggressive (we can all be like that sometimes ) You are welcome to join us. You are better off being a nuggets fan since we are very good and becoming even better, while the bulls don't have good enough young core and will be looking to go into another rebuild and trade away some of their young players before they have to pay them.skywalker33 wrote: So you’re more of a player watcher than a fan of the game, very typical of Euro fans. Now a days, the players are marketed more than the teams itself
The NBA is like that these days it's not a euro thing if anything it's an nba/american thing. It's a players league where the stars/superstars have the franchises by their balls and fans being fan of players instead of teams and may later convert to also root for the team, but those type of fans can also ditch the team when their favorite player leaves the team. I'm in this category myself and there's nothing wrong with that most fans are like that these days.
I would still keep an eye for the nuggs since I have been a fan now for a couple of years but wouldn't be invested anymore if Jokic left, still love MPJ's game. I became a fan of the nuggets becuase of Jokic and it's like that for most fans, they have a player they love and start rooting for that team he is on, that's usually how it goes This is a controversial take and I don't mind debating it with u guys, but for me unless you are a fan of those big market team that can get rid of bust and some picks for stars and sign some in free agents it's not worth being a longtime fan of the small market team since it's soo hard to build a team and you have sooo many things going against you. So if you are not a fan of teams like celtics, lakers maybe knicks if they had good ownership and some other markets, you are gonna have a hard time and probably end like a treadmill team but it's extremly hard to be more than that with everything going against the small market teams.
Dark, I did point out that the NBA is marketing for to their stars, it's their platform to draw in the international fans a great marketing plan IMO. But I stick with my statement of it being more of a Euro thing because I continue to find so many Euro fans picking out their fav's (whether Euro players or American player) rather than following a market team. I grew up in Denver and have followed this team since Mack Calvin/Hayward Spencer/David Thompson days thru to today, thru the good and the bad. As you stated, you follow because of Jokic or MPJ, if they were to go, would you have any interest in the Nuggets ?? Probably not, you are what we Americans call a fair-weather fan. Nothing wrong with it, but it shows in so many Euro's post (Look at the guy who has twice come over advocating for the Nugget to draft Bolmaro, probably HIS favorite team, even trying to fabricate a FO relationship to support it ???? ) and it shows lack of depth and TEAM knowledge IMO.
