Topic.

the fan that likes the team because they saw them win a lot (a lot of miami heat fans nowadays) They also know next to nothing about the team, only knowing who the starting lineup is and maybe some bench players. Every moment they will tell you why their team is better but don't provide any actual statements other than "we won"


This exact post sounds like my cousin lmaooo. Only thing is he can't tell you the players beyond the big 3 and chamlers. Hell he didn't even know lewis/ allen were on the team till 2 months after the season started.

Trying to get into bball. Convos with him is depressing. For the fact he can hardly defend his " favorite team"

It is also important to note location plays a large role in bandwagoner status.

If you suddenly started cheering for a team that's local to you, you're fairweather.

If you start cheering for a team that's out of your market, you're most likely a bandwagoner.

A key here is also the word "start." If you've been cheering for an out of market team since childhood, that's somewhat reasonable.

Fairweather can eventually shed the term, after long enough. Bandwagon is for life.

there are some football players in my school that like the heat, I live nowhere near miami, I live in new jersey. I never seen them talk about the heat before.

My friends call me a bandwagoner cause I went from following wade (still do he's my fav player) to becoming a full time nets fan. Which to me makes no sense since I live in BK

Seriously, the Lakers are much more of a bandwagon team than the Heat. Literally every since Kobe joined the league and the Lakers got back to their winning ways they have been a bandwagon team.

Southern California is dense in population and basketball is part of the culture. Many people also move to other cities/states.

Miami on the other hand, not so much. It's more of a transplant city than anything else.
