Feel free to chose them all.
The Lakers and all their undeserved media attention and fair-weather-celebrity fans.
I voted for the Lakers, but Phil should have been in there too.
The Heat are the masters of whining and blaming everyone and everything other than themselves for losing. I hate whining. And whiners.
And pretty boys. Did I mention Wade?
And Riles' hair. What color is it supposed to be anyway?
Not to mention Walker. How can he walk around with a head that big? Why doesn't he just fall over?
I'm actually starting not to dislike Indy as much. If they can get rid of Hunter, they're kind of bearable. Especially JO. He must have the smallest head size to height ratio in the league.
And White Chocolate. I prefer Dark Chocolate myself. Like Dikembe Mutumbo. That's dark chocolate.
I voted for all of them. I am an equal opportunity hater.
It's hollow on the inside.
I picked the Heat too. I even hate the PA announcer who says THREEEEEEEE after every three pointer
No I think it was Otis Thorpe. 6'11" with a 5'11" head. I couldn't get mad at Thorn, he fired LB during one of LBs job horing campains. Even though he tried to block the Sheed trade.
Phil is included with the Bull/Jordan hate.
In chocolate terms I'm partial to...
Chocolate-Thunder-Flying, Robinzine-Crying, Teeth-Shaking, Glass-Breaking, Rump Roasting, Bun-Toasting, Wham-Bam-Glass-Breaker-I-Am-Jam
In Your Face Disgrace
Dunk You Very Much

Spine Chiller Supreme dunks.
Now that's chocolate.
I like Wade a lot. (Not as much as Bill Walton does, or in the same sense). I quit hating the Heat after Van Jeremy left. Riley is ok with me. Shaq's a clown. They do whine too much, but so does Sheed and I love the guy. I think I'll hate the Heat again if we meet them in the playoffs, though.
Yeah, Indy just isn't the same this year. O'neals big mouth remains, but thats about it.
The Lakers always have someone to hate, I think. I never liked Jabbar, either.
Jordan/Pippen/Jackson Bulls, by a massive margin. I don't really hate anyone else. I "love to hate" the Lakers, which is totally different.
I really despised the Bulls of '91-'98. I hated how they put an end to the Bad Boys' reign, I hated how MJ was stuffed down the collective throat of the world by a fawning, uncritical media (AS IF he was the greatest athlete of the 20th century as claimed by ESPN -- the greatest marketed, sure), and I hated Jackson sitting smugly on the bench as his superstar got every call and non-call to go his way. Ugh. :P
I will never love another team as much as the Bad Boys, and I will never hate another team as much as the Bulls teams that succeeded them.
As far as current squads go, I actually like and respect both the Pacers and the Nets, and I've got nothing against the Heat. I'm sick of the Spurs, but I don't have a problem with them beyond that.
I used to have a problem with the Lakers when they were winning in '00-'02. It seemed like the Bulls all over again, with Jackson on the bench, Kobe was still a media darling and being peddled (convincingly) as the next MJ, and there were so many carry-over players from the Bulls it was sickening (e.g. Harper, Salley, Grant). All they needed was Pippen and I would have tossed my lunch....
However, they then collapsed in '04 under the weight of Shaq vs. Kobe, an apathetic Jackson, Kobe's legal issues, etc. etc. and of course a better Pistons team. Since then, Kobe's been absolutely dumped on by everyone, and the way he's responded has made a fan out of me. I love cheering for those that everyone else is cheering against -- it's the reason I gravitated to the Bad Boys in the first place.
I voted for the Magic and Darko ... because the Magic have always been jerks going back to the McGrady days, Darko is a two-faced whiner who never has a good word about Detroit for the Florida papers, and many fans in their forums think they ripped us off for some great player who's better than Dwight Howard.
If you don't appreciate Dwight Howard, you are despicable. Dwight deserves fans who appreciate the guy doing the heavy lifting.
Meanwhile the biggest flaw with this poll is the absence of the Cavaliers and LeBron James. They tanked their way to one great player and haven't won anything, but the Cavs still get to be Stern's dream team.
Maybe "Whatever team David Stern is pimping" should be a poll choice.
That's what I'm talking about, Nier and 1989, pure, rotten, vindictive- jealous- contrary dispiseness. Even if Stern were to pimp the Tons, I might gag. We don't need his coddling. That's why we all liked the BBz, they took what they wanted and didn't care what the league thought.
...However 1989 we got 6 to 10 pretty good guys here now you should open your heart to. They been bustin' their collective azzzzzs for us.
Remember try not to be so Biased Biased.
Don't ever let it be said that I don't respect and admire the current squad. I love 'em, I absolutely believed in them in the '03-'04 season -- I was convinced they would win it all after LB signed on -- and I want the current run of championship competitiveness to last as long as possible.
The B. Boys are the best, but I'm a Pistons fan forever.
Even though I hate the Lakers, I have to root for them against the Suns. Smush and the supporting crew really make stupid mistakes over and over. But they are starting to get inside the Suns' heads.
I bet there're a lot of Smush fans out there.
Lamar Odom is really manhandling Marion. They held the Suns scoreless for 7 and 1/2 minutes at one point. That ain't easy to do.
And Kobe is just starting to get PO'ed about losing the MVP to Nash.
Hey, I'm pretty embarassed about rooting for the Lakers but someone filled out my playoff bracket with the Suns going down, so here I am. I'm getting an Odom jersey tomorrow.
That's all Jim Rome could talk about today; Kobes bying in to the Zen Master. And he was pissed Nash took the MVP. Again.
That post is kind of odious, DBA. If not ordorous.
