As we get closer to the restart and we are all rooting for the Celtics, I figured we can talk about who we would be least disappointed in if that team won instead of the Celtics.

Please share your reasoning.   


(and please no fan shaming if someone actually picks the Lakers)

Clippers.

Because that would upset the Lakers the most.

Anybody but the Lakers and 76ers, for obvious reasons.

If not us, Iíll pull for the Clippers or any of the true long shots, particularly if theyíve never won before.  Pelicans, Jazz, Pacers.

I chose the Bucks because I want to see the Giannis to the Warrior's (or heat) talk die.   


It was a close to the Clippers to stick it to the Lakers.  (or even better, the Pelicans with one of the former Lakers as final MVP)

  • A true Celtic plays with heart.
I believe in equality.

I would be equally just as upset if anyone else the Celtics won.  :angel:

 :P

Probably the Bucks, just so people don't assume where Giannis will go next. And secondly, I chose the Clippers, only because I like the team, and Ballmer seems like the type of owner you'd love to work with. He really cares about that team, and is super invested in it.

If not the Celtics, I wouldn't mind if the Bucks won. That could change if there's a bitter series between the Celtics and Bucks though.

Absolutely anybody but the Lakers. Not crazy about the Sixers either, but at least if they win, they will be on the hook for Alís entire contract (although it would be worth it at that point).

Probably the Lakers. Do not like the Clippers (it is the Clippers + how they came together this summer) or the Bucks (boring team). Lakers are the only non-Celtics legit title threat left so them.

I have always loved AD and I have been enjoying LeBron out-smarting / out-maneouvering people this season as his athleticism has dropped off. Pity Rondo got hurt. I always cheer for him.

Blasphemy!

I went with the Bucks.

That organization has suffered a long time, with some decent teams along the way.
Yup

None of the Above.

But since that wasn't offered, I clicked on the Clippers.   'Would get Doc another ring and would probably p--- the Lakers off almost as much as BOS winning it.

^^^this. The Clippers also have been one of the most inept franchises prior to the last decade - their fans deserve something to cheer about after decades of malaise.

Pacers, because I think Bird is still involved with them.

I voted for the Bucks cause I'm greek and I have a soft spot for Giannis and Thanasis. The team they were playing for in Greece (Filathlitikos) is based really close to my home. I even played in their gym once when I was a kid.

I've come to like the Bucks since they drafted Giannis. I follow their news from time to time.
