The latest musings of a Knicks fan…

I found myself at a conundrum yesterday as I watched the Chicago Bulls knock off the Miami Heat yesterday.

A lifelong fan of the New York Knicks, I’m torn. In the 1990s, the Bulls, who featured Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Horace Grant et al, demolished the Knickerbockers at every opportunity. I would be flabbergasted if I were to support the new Bulls team, led by Kirk Heinrich, Ben Gordon and Luol Deng.

My question: Should I root for the Bulls? On one hand, I’d be supporting a good team in my adopted city. I would allow myself to watch them on TV (and maybe make arrangements to, gasp, watch the games with others). I may even attend a game or two.

On the other hand, I’d feel like a turncoat. I can’t imagine my veins, which have always pumped orange and blue, to start pumping the Bulls’ red and white.

Perhaps I should take donations online for an NBA On-Demand subscription. Any takers?

    ::cough:: root for the bulls ::cough::

    At least we can have some fun going to a bar or two to watch the games!

    Agreeing on a sports team would be something, huh?
