We have two favorite teams here at RedsArmy.com: The Boston Celtics, and whichever team is playing the Lakers.
Since our horse is out of the race, we're throwing our Laker-hating weight behind the Denver Nuggets. So for now, we're renaming the site "Issel's Army," after Denver Nuggets great Dan Issel. And what a great team this Nuggets squad is. The addition of Chauncey Billups has been such a stabilizing force. Nene is playing like everyone had hoped he would play. You even got an internet phenom in The Birdman.
Hell, I'm even going to overlook my white-hot hatred of Kenyon Martin for this series. For the next couple of weeks, that lips tattoo is a wonderful expression of who Kenyon is… and not some ridiculous-looking thing that makes him look even douchier.
Is this bandwagon jumping? You betcha. But it's bandwagon jumping because we hate the Lakers. The enemy of our enemy is our friend. And right now Denver, you're our friends.
And you die-hard Nuggets fans have nothing to worry about. As soon as you eliminate Kobe and Kobe-ettes, we'll step off your bandwagon and change back to our regular ol' Red's Army. We have no rooting interest beyond you beating the Lakers. If you win it all, we won't celebrate like we did.
Just beat the goddam Lakers, will ya?
