Two Types of Hardcore Basketball fans (Bx3 #57)

Previous Comic (NBA playground) - Next Comic (That voodoo that who-do?)

I'm more of a Lev (the guy in the gray hoodie if you're new to the comic) type hardcore basketball fan- the long serpentine trying to be objective analysis- than the Chub (yellow jersey) rooting hard and having faith in one team kind of fan.  How about you? I guess it's possible to be somewhere in between those two extremes... and there's the people out there that just seem to root for individual players too, forgot about them when I was drafting up the comic.

I also have no idea who will win this year, despite my ability to talk at length about it. It's wide open in my eyes. That makes it all the more exciting, doesn't it?

A side note- I feel really bad for D. Rose and Shump.  Hate to see guys go down like that, but it just shows how hard it is to predict what will happen because anything can happen.  I tore my own ACL once playing basketball, and the resulting forced period of inactivity is when I started getting really into art. You just never know the path you're going to end up on, no matter how much analysis you do of the past.

Thanks to @Nerdnumbers for a little inspiration on this one.

    1. 200 years in the future when cultural historians inevitably unearth the archives if this comic, that will be a very cryptic comment Chump.

  2. Comics for a basketball fan, love it!!!! I'm like Lev when i'm putting down the pesos, or if i'm trying to prove to my friends i know more about bball then them. I'm like chub when i'm sittin home watchin games. These days i root for certain players. Overachievers, Legends(Kobe), or old vets like Celts. I guess it's because i'm getting older and have more respect for the whole body of work some of these guys have put in. Kobe & K.G hell even The Big Fundemental(I Hate Spurs). So i guess i'm a tweener

    1. Thanks for the great comment Yoshi. I think most people are like this. There are plenty of fans that support a single team that are still capable of analyzing the whole league. But that doesn't make for a very funny comic... I love the "Tweener Fan" idea!
