Miami Heat, Cleveland Cavaliers, LA Kings, LA Dodgers, and LA Lakers, and the LA Clippers are teams that have the biggest bandwagon following in sports today. Loyalty is one of the hardest things to come across. Especially when guys are changing teams like girls change sex partners. When LeBron came in the league, so many people jumped ship and joined the Cavs bandwagon. I didn’t even know the Cavaliers were a team until LeBron. Most of them couldn’t even name the starting five!
Remember when the Lakers had a good couple of years, but then went downhill. Then they picked up Dwight and all the fans came back thinking they were going to get at least a 3-peat with him on the squad. It’s okay, we know you were one of those fans.
These past 3 years, the weak ass Clippers/Lob City got a big following because of Blake Griffin’s super saiyan dunks. Clippers use to never sell out any games. The stadium was so empty, security encouraged people to find open seats in lower sections so it looked like there were more fans at the game. Clipper tickets used to cost less than a bucket of chicken at KFC, now they cost more than Lakers tickets.
Back In ’06 when the Anaheim Ducks won the Stanley Cup, nobody jumped on the Hockey bandwagon. It must have be the LA natives hate of OC teams. It wasn’t until the LA Kings won one in 2011 that people started to like Hockey. I still don’t know why, that shit looks mad boring. No racial, but a lot Mexicans hopped on that bandwagon and none of them know how to skate.
Is it too soon to bring up Dodger fans? Because they only come around for the season opener and disappear after that. Unless they make the playoffs, but even then they’re only around for another 3 games until they get eliminated from the playoffs.
You can catch a lot of people wearing another team’s jersey after their team doesn’t make the playoffs. And they all say the same thing, “I just like the player”. Stick to your squad and don’t get caught wearing another team’s jersey or be prepared to be put on blast by yours truly.
Oh, and shout out to Aubrey Drake Graham for being the biggest Bandwagonner.
