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.

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.
What makes it hard to be fan of a NBA team for a longer period is that teams that are good can soon be bad becuase they are old, injuries, reached their peak and it's not good enough etc and have to go into a painful rebuild and those are hard on any fan. This has to do with the cap and the nature of the NBA, but teams like celtics and lakers can get back quickly to the top becuase of their prestige and market, the lakers being a prime example even though they are horribly managed and got a garbage FO. In other words, the small market teams have too much going against them and when they draft super/stars they are pretty much impossibly retain and get to re-sign that third contract, since they wanna run of to those big markets. Just look at Giannis, bucks would be 65+ team if the season continued, yet here we are asking ourselves will Giannis re-sign a supermax contract which is even more what other teams can offer and built a great team around him. Now he might re-sign but we don't know that, they are a top 3 contender yet we are asking ourselves this with everything the Bucks have going for them..
