Specifically, who are you going for? The Celtics are nursing a 2-1 series lead, but the momentum (and venue) has shifted back to LA. Kobe Bryant dominated game three, but game two was controlled by Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.
Before you decide consider the following:
- For BYU fans: Cheering for the Celtics means cheering for Danny Ainge, BYU Hall-of-Famer and architect of the 2008 Celtics team.
- For Jazz fans: Cheering for the Lakers means cheering for Western Conference basketball. This is kind of like BYU fans cheering for Utah during bowl season because it's good for the conference. Not everyone's cup of tea, but it works for some people.
- For Jazz fans: Cheering for the Celtics because you hate the Lakers. This, of course, is the opposite route than the one above. If you're hatred for the gold and purple runs deep, maybe this is the best choice for you.
- For basketball fans: Cheering for the Celtics because they're just plain good. Who cares if you're on the bandwagon?
So if you're a Lakers fan, if you're a Celtics fan, if you're a basketball fan who normally doesn't care about either, or if you hate basketball period, let your voice be heard. Leave your comment, and don't be afraid to step on some toes.
