I started out as a Kansas City Kings fan and saw the amazing Tiny Archibald Show live and in person. It made me realize that point guards really can be the foundation of great NBA franchises.

After moving to Chicago, I adopted the Bulls, but knew they would only go so far when they passed over a chance to draft Sam Perkins. What were they thinking?

The Miami Heat were founded the same year that my parents moved to Florida, so I took special notice. When the Heat made their move for Jon Sunvold in the expansion draft. I was hooked for life because I knew that they would win multiple championships.

I guess I'm always right.
