Kentucky fans are going to face a huge problem after the 2012 NBA Draft is done. Granted, the problem is a good one to have, however is a problem none the less. The tough question that every UK fan will have to answer , "Which NBA team do I root for?
Kentucky is set to send 6 more players to the league next season. This influx of Kentucky players in the pros will add to the already saturated Kentucky mix that is scattered all over the NBA. UK fans are the most passionate in all of sports and love following their players into their pro careers. This passion will cause a bit a problem now as so many NBA teams will have Kentucky Wildcats on their roster.
The easy fix is to cheer on everybody, and not align yourself with one team. This is good in theory but will wreak havoc on your wallet. For instance, you would have to buy 15 + different hats, 15 + shirts / jerseys, and 15 + different foam fingers. That would add up to quite a bit of cash.
So, your not Mr. Moneybags and decide that you are going to bite the bullet and only support one NBA team. How do you possibly pick? Do you go and buy gear for the NBA team with the most UK players? Do you pick the team that has your favorite player? Do you draw straws?
As you can tell, this is a tough decision for any UK fan to make. I’m included in this as I don’t know what to do. I wrote a very similar post as this one last season, and now our decision is harder. Next season, it becomes even tougher yet again. The problems of a Kentucky fan, and I love it !
