Made worse when you look at the rubbish that made it in the East!

Don't choose to follow the Timberwolves unless you enjoy watching abject failure every year.

How about following no one and just watching games as a neutral therefore you learn more about teams and the sport of Basketball as you watch instead of having a tainted outlook on things because your choosing to follow one team.

If your serious about watching and following Basketball the fact you don't actually favour any one team shouldn't really matter.

Well to an extent I do that, I feel I have a pretty wide NBA knowledge for someone who can only watch limited games.

Of course, it's only natural that you pick teams to root for, even if not exclusively. Sport is all about the winning and losing, it's ok to watch casually but personally I think if you don't have some sort of rooting interest you do miss out a little.

That said I'm taking my time and seeing where the chips fall, if they ever do. I must confess that the news that Dumars is leaving the Pistons is also interesting, i do like the Pistons in theory but a bit like following the Knicks with Dolan at the helm, I couldn't follow an uninspired Dumars wreck of a team in salary cap hell.

Of course even in the NFL, where I'm purely a Saints fan, there are other teams I like to see do well, I'm not totally blinkered to the Saints though they are definitely the team I'm wed to.

Terminology, probably, but if you follow some teams then by definition you're not neutral?

An example i follow German Football but i don't follow one team. I watch the League as a Neutral i have no connection what soever and i don't really care who wins. I watch the Games for pure entertainment purposes and nothing more.

I follow the NRL and Super League but i don't follow any team and watch the games as a neutral. Again i don't care who wins the Grand Final at the end of the year.
