I don't see one so I will make one. I'm a Celtics fan disappointed in their performance tonight.

Alps:
I'm a Knicks fan disappointed in their performance this millennium. Carry on. Also, f the cheatriots and sux, re: your tagline.

Speaking of which, 'f the yankees' I get, because fuck those fuckers.  But 'f the jets'?  The Jets have been terrible your entire life.  I don't see how one can hate a team that their team has dominated for so long.  That's gotta be your dad talking, I assume.

How lucky are Pats fans to be in a division where every other team has been an absolute trainwreck for 20 years?  That's like 6 automatic wins every season, excepting a few flukes here and there.

Anyway, on the topic, the quality of the team in Milwaukee is causing me to pay attention to the NBA a little more recently.  They've been mediocre to terrible my entire life, so I never got into pro hoops so much.  But then along comes a certain man with a name you can't say without sounding drunk and now it's suddenly more fun.  Call me a fairweather fan if you will, but screw it; the local team is finally good so I'm jumping on the Gannis bandwagon.
As a bonus, it's distracting me from thinking about all the money spent on a new arena.  If the Bucks are still playing deep into the baseball season, that'll feel like we got something for our $480 million.

Max Rockatansky:
Lifelong Pistons fan, seems like they are really on and competing every other decade.  There is really much to get me interested in a 16-17 team this year.

This reminded me of the Indiana Pacers when they opened up then-called Conseco Fieldhouse in 1999. That season was likely the pinnacle of Pacers success in the NBA. Of course we had our most famous player playing at that time with Reggie Miller but that season saw the Pacers reach the NBA Finals for their only time in their history. In their first year at the new arena they had the best home record I believe the team has ever had, and included a 25-game home win streak to boot.

And now, the Pacers own the 3rd best record in the Eastern Conference and the 4th best record in the entire league, and barely anyone's talked about them.
