Most fans usually support the local team. However, there are many sports fans which rabidly support a team which is not in their state. For example, I for one am a Lakers fan. I am originally from Chicago, and was a huge Bulls fan. However, when the Bulls were prematurely broken up by a insane management team (Jerry Krause & Jerry Reinsdorf).....I followed Phil Jackson to LA. In a way I see the Lakers current run as an example of what could have/should have happened in Chicago if Jackson wasn't fired. In cases like these....what makes you support another town's team?
