Just FYI, I became a Mavericks fan when I moved to Texas in '89. I was also a Micheal Jordan fan because I lived in a non-NBA city and saw all of the nationally telecast Bulls games. Jordan was a phenomenal player. How could you not hang on every shot? Call that what you will, but it doesnt bother me any.
Bandwagon Fan Characteristics
A bandwagon sports fan will typically root for a team in a particular sport that is the most visible and is successful. Most often bandwagon fans prefer teams that have a long tradition of winning championships (New York Yankees, Dallas Cowboys, Los Angeles Lakers, Chicago Bulls
, Duke basketball, Notre Dame football) as well as having well known popular athletes playing for those teams such as Derek Jeter, Magic Johnson or Michael Jordan.
If the Mavs lose before they reach the finals are you going to jump on the Shaq and Wade bandwagon?
