    Hard not to love that team with some of my favorite ex-Rockets there. They play how I wish we played, with a bit of passion and agression

    Too bad they aren't playing much better than the Rockets right now

    Yeah, I find that team pretty easy to cheer for. I'm worried they are pretty limited, but am interested to see how it plays out.

    I've always like Casey as a coach, going back to a friend who knew him well, way way back in the college ranks @ UK. Fun fact: he won an NCAA championship at Kentucky as a player.

    Supporting the Eastern Conference Rockets? Sure.

    I do. They're my home team since moving north. That said, the Hornets also got some attention from me. I love that team's chemistry after Houston's very disappointing season.

    Nope. Not supporting the Craptors.
    I love the passion of their fans but a team that features Derozan as a star is not for me.

    Nope

    I'll always have love for the Toronto Rockets, but I find their fans have an undeserved and exaggerated sense of entitlement

    The Hawks fanbase was the same way last year.

    Nope, I will be supporting the Hornet's because I am a fan of Lin, and I hate the Heat more than any other team in the East. Watching them and their fans complain about fouls is the funniest thing I have seen in years

    Yes - but they have no shot at winning the East, much less the title.

    I'm thinking a second round series between Toronto and Charlotte would be a really good series. Charlotte seems to playing well on this little 3 game streak they've started and Toronto always has potential to play really really well.

    I like both teams so I would just hope every game was close and exciting.

    Our fan base is about as pessimistic as it gets. You ask any Raptor fan and they'll tell you that winning a first round series is our championship.

    I definitely cannot root for the Raptors over the Pacers (my hometown team).

    For the sake of their great fans, I wish them the best if they advance.

    Yes the craptors fanbase isnt entitled. They are more like manic bipolar often flirting with suicide.
    If you want to see an entitled fanbase that would be boston chicago and lakers. All my most hated teams.

    There's not a fan base in the league more entitled than the thunder. Who proudly claimed to be the best fans in the NBA during their inaugural year....probably because the Jumbotron told them to say so.
