    NBA fans?

    I've had a theory about NBA fans and I just want to test that here with a simple poll.

    The basis is easy, if you are an NBA fan, please vote as to your age bracket.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Re: NBA fans?

    I voted not a fan. I occasionally watch a Cavs game, and am a big LeBron fan, but I really can't call myself and NBA fan.

    Well thus far my theory is just not holding water. But its an interesting and enlightening discovery.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Do you mind stating what your theory is/was? Just curious as to what it was.

    Over 30 and a Knicks fan. However, if the Knicks aren't playing I really don't watch any games. (And they're really hard to watch, too.) For baseball and football, I can watch any teams play.

    Basically that the NBA appealed to younger fans and it was something you grew out of as you got a bit older.

    Not an NBA fan. I back up your theory a bit. I was a big Cavs fan growing up but have lost all interest in the NBA, though I respect the players big time.

    I was a huge Cincinnati Royals fan and kept my NBA fanship alive ever since then.

    But I'm probably in the minority.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    I dont think this poll can tell you what you want to know, because I have the feeling that the ages of the members of Redszone don't mirror the ages of sports' fans in general. I could be wrong.

    I spent a good many nights down at Cincinnati Gardens.

    Actually I think basketball was a better game in the 70's than it is now.

    That's partially why I am no longer interested.

    Each team would have 20-25 turnovers per game, but you didn't care because it was because of the nature of the fast-pace play (the way basketball is best played from a fan perspective). You'd see great "team" play, which is far better to watch than "individual" play. Mix great athleticism in with great "team" play, and you've got a "show", such as the Drexler-Blazers, the Magic-Lakers, the Erving-Sixers, the Dominique-Hawks, the Eddie-Johnson-Suns, the Aguirre-Mavericks, etc.

    31, soon to be 32, and a die-hard Indiana Pacers fan. Have been ever since I was little. Also root for Boston because I'm a Hoosier boy and grew up worshiping Bird.
