Who should I follow?

So I havent really watched basketball since I was a boy but have been getting back into it lately after having no interest in the sport or any sport since I was like 6 years old because it doesnt show on TV where im from. lol

I was watching a few matches and was pretty wowed by OKC, mainly enjoyed watching Durant and Westbrook. Then I saw that seem to be the power house teams lol. Would it be lame of me to follow them?

I also enjoyed watching Lebron and Dwayne Wade but Ive already heard of them and knew they were that they were good.

Another notable mention was James Harding, he seemed pretty good to watch.

And since when was Charlotte not Hornets anymore. Charlotte Hornets was my team when I was young. I heard New Orleans were changing to Pelicans. Does that mean Charlotte is going back to Hornets too? I also enjoyed watching Kemba and Henderson were pretty cool to watch vs lakers. Im defs gunna keep an eye on them even though they barely have any wins but 'bobcats' sounds so.....yuk lmao

Clippers because of Chris Paul and Blake Griffin/
Lakers because more people need to know of the awesomeness known as Earl Clark.

Also I see nothing wrong in liking a team because of a certain player.

If you want to watch exciting basketball, I wouldn't advise the Lakers.

If you like to watch scoring: Denver Nuggets

If you like to watch dunking: LA Clippers, Miami Heat

If you ran out of Nyquil: San Antonio Spurs

Talented young players to watch out for: Kevin Durant (OKC), Kyrie Irving (Cleveland), Damian Lillard (Portland), John Wall (Washington), Derrick Rose (Chicago), Ricky Rubio (Minnesota)

The Houston Rockets are a good, young team to follow.

Dunno just watch a few games, highlights of many teams and go from there. Bobcats aren't as bad as everyone makes them out to be.
2012/13 Memphis Grizzlies: 31-18
Do you mind if my friend sits this one out...she's just dead!

I would definitely recommend the Rockets, They are a super young team that can score at a ridiculous rate. The defense isn't always there, but the games are extremely entertaining.
