    What team should I root for?

    i am a knicks fan but i am so done with them. i want to root for a winning franchise maybe OKC or Cleveland? What team would make me smile and possibly make me some money too over an 82 game season.

    I learned long ago to take emotion out of the game if you want to decrease losses or increase profits. Just root for the team you bet on at that current time, if you must, but I recommend you don't fall in love with anybody. It will derail your emotions (even rooting for the team you currently bet on will do this) which will eventually contribute to a short circuit in rational thought, which will contribute to falling into a one of many traps waiting for you; which will result in a loss.

    How bad the loss depends on the nature of the derailment and the nature of said trap.

    If you are an adult you really should only root for teams that you have money on. Fandom is for squares and children

    I have m teams I grew up cheering for. I still cheer for them. The thing is I fade them as well. Cheer on you bet. Don't bet on your team just to cheer on them.

    its too easy to root for the thunder or cavs. why not root for the houston rockets right now? this horse is headed to the finals. golden state are good but without curry they are done. i know the series is 3-1, but the rockets were in a similar position last year against the clippers that seemed unbeatable 3-1. best fans in the nba, nothing to lose, +6000/+50000. clutch city!!

    Atlanta Hawks is the team to root for now. Don't be gay and root for Lebron and Durant.

    Please don't pick Cleveland. There are already far too many Lebron worshipping arseholes in this world.
