Pat yourselves on the back, Spurs fans…
… you finished number eight in Forbes‘ list of America’s best sports fans. Spurs fans were the second-ranked NBA fanbase on the list, behind only the Boston Celtics, who were number seven overall.
In other news, it’s August and there’s not much going on in the NBA. When NBATV is running a special announcing the NBA schedule, you know it’s a slow news week.
Back to Forbes. Thanks to their list, the Spurs at least beat the Los Angeles Lakers at something. Despite Laker supporters seemingly appearing at every game in the NBA, regardless of whether or not the purple and gold were even playing, the reigning NBA champs finished back at number 12, one spot ahead of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Your devotion over the years coinciding with the success of the Tim Duncan years ranked you as high as you are. That and spending money on tickets and merchandise. This is Forbes, after all. So spend more money on Spurs stuff, I guess, and maybe next year you can take down Boston. Although that might be tough if the Celtics sign Shaq, I hear that guy sells tickets and jerseys like hot cakes.
