Yes. Dbacks in 2001. Never for Cards or Suns. This town will forever be a suns town. They were the first and only ticket in town for 30+ years, so they have a fairly loyal fan base.

I'm certain you have. I'm just bandwagoning on someone else's comments about your fandom.

The Valley ones have also grown on me quite a bit. I was sort of unsure about them initially.
I've seen tons of people wearing Suns jerseys over the last month or so and I haven't seen one of those Kevin Johnson era ones. I've seen tons of people wearing The Valley ones.

Yeah I looked on NBAstore.com and that style jersey is not available for purchase.
Though to be fair, The Valley isnít either. There may have been a run. Stilll I donít think it would be very popular as it looks both generic and dated.

Because these are so much better than the old ones which look like more of a classic uni to me


The valley unis look like they came out of a 3D printer.

Giannis asking to go to the bench after 3 minutes and walking around near the tunnel is not what Bucks fans want to seeÖ

Mike Breen saying "Bobby Portis is always so positive" is hilarious. Yeah I mean other then punching and breaking a teammates face in a practice.

Bucks playing like they should as this is a must win game. Giannis is just incredible and Booker is off. Weíll see if that changes.

Pretty predictable game, probably more of the same game 4. Not sure if anybody will win on the road

Well, Foster was reffing a CP3 game...

The big question mark coming into the Finals was the health of Giannis and at least so far the dude is a cyborg or something because I know if my knee bent the wrong way like that I'd be out for a year.

Yep. I was listening to the Bill Simmons podcast after game 2 and he said no way Suns sweep because Scott Foster is going to ref one of these next two games and sure enough.

Booker has run pretty hot and cold in the last two rounds. Maybe the broken nose is still a factor.

This is a wild game. Booker dodged a bullet from fouling out.

Thank you for completely shitting the bed Chris Paul. What the fuck man. You looked like you were 50 years old.

Nice to see NBA officiating is as horseshit as NFL and MLB. My god. Btw, both ways. Booker fouled out with several mins but there were garbage calls everywhere.

Middleton is the real deal. The Bucks are going to be a tough out.

I don’t really give a shit about sports anymore, but I have a few friends that are legit long suffering Bucks fans that I’m really happy for. Even if they don’t win the series, I know two of them are just really happy they made it back to the finals.

Thatís the good thing about this series: Both fanbases have been waiting a long time. Even better, itís now a best of three.

Long suffering

Your team has won a championship and they got the benefit of a stupid coin flip.
