What NBA team should you be rooting for?

An amazing flow chart to help you decide what team to root for (as if you didn’t know already).

Reddit can be a weird place. It’s one of the most popular sites on the internet with a bulletin board style layout where fans can rate things, chat, or even create their own inventions. One such invention was a flow chart to help you determine what NBA team you should root for by @NBA_Reddit user u/G00dvibrati0ns.

Of course, we all know what team we root for: the San Antonio Spurs! But how do we confirm that? Following the flow chart you, you can take either first path based on if you want to root for the best team or not, but ultimately you have not want to be hated to get back on path to the Spurs. You don’t care about rooting for the best player, you believe your team should be above average, your favorite position is the big man, all you care about is good fundamentals, and boom! You’re a Spurs fan. That seems about right.

I personally can’t drop my biases enough to get to an unbiased result, if only because this is pretty much right on point with my line of thinking. How about you? Do your team preferences ultimately lead you back to the Spurs, or is there someone else you should be rooting for?
