Basketball fan votes

With the NBA preseason still underway, and the basketball regular season quickly closing in, ESPN.com asked fans to vote for their favorite franchise. However, not only did they vote for NBA teams, but also for NFL, NHL, and MLB franchises. They used this information to determine just how good a team or franchise is viewed by the fans, not only based on current standings and performance. They take into account different aspects like coaches, previous wins, and even the most affordable team.

Every basketball fan loves to hate on the New York Knicks, which is probably why they are not only placed last among other NBA teams, but also second-to-last against all sports franchises in the United States. If they want to put a positive spin on this, they can always say that any news is good news!

We have the San Antonio Spurs coming in first spot, after being there in 2013 and 2015, along with the Memphis Grizzlies coming in second, but were first in 2014. These two teams continue to rank extremely high not only due to their endless talent they have on their teams, but because they are good at winning games. They also have a great coach and coaching staff, and even the owner played a part in them coming in first place again this year. Let’s see what this next basketball season has in store for these teams, and hopefully they will keep impressing all sports fans.
