I was an inveterate UCLA and NBA (not always the Lakers, unless Kareem was there) fan, but I've wandered away in recent years as NBA needs a tv screen for most fun absorption. I did get so far as to be for the Warriors.
Here's a recent Warrior-local news piece -
I'll just copy the whole thing, which I don't usually do, but it's short with a good photo + I list creds:

The Golden State Warriors’ practice facility on Monday was not an upbeat place.
After meeting with general manager Bob Myers for their respective exit interviews, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green faced the media. They spoke of avoiding their TVs and how badly they wished to not be in their current predicament.
“To sit and dwell on it, that’s not going to do anything for me,” Green said. “I’m not going to sit and throw a pity party for myself or my teammates or anybody else. We were a minute away from winning a championship. We had a 3-1 lead, we had all the opportunities in the world we needed. Got to take your hat off to [the Cavs]. They fought, they battled and they took the series. It’s nothing to sit around and cry about.”
(Green won’t have the time to sit around and do much of anything as he committed to playing for Team USA in the upcoming Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, according to a report from The Undefeated.)
But once again, Curry’s 3-year old daughter, Riley, stole the show.
Well, the photo was earlier, so that part is rather manufactured, but, still I get the basic point.
