35 GIFs of NBA Fans at Their Best (and Worst)

by: Esteban On  Thursday, May 14, 2015

NBA fans gifs

If I had to rank the fans of the four major North American pro sports leagues from most awesome to least awesome—and I don’t—I’d probably put NBA fans at the top of the list.

They’re still not in the same league as college basketball and football fans, who are mostly college students and therefore expected to get drunk and party. And NBA fans also can’t really hold a flame to European and Latin American soccer fans, who are pretty much just insane. But again, among the major pro sports leagues in North America, I’d say NBA fans are the top.

Of course, as you probably know, the 2015 NBA Playoffs are chugging along at full speed now. And that means it’s peak season for NBA fanwatching. Which is kind of like birdwatching, only you don’t have to leave your couch, and there’s a lot more dancing.

So sit back, kick off your shoes (unless you’re on a bus, in which case that’s weird), and check out these GIFs of NBA fans at their best…and their worst…which is still pretty entertaining.

Come on, Cleveland, I know you thought Taj Gibson had kicked your boy Matt Dellavedova. (He really didn’t, and Dellavedova was just as guilty as Gibson, but that’s another story.) You still shouldn’t throw stuff at the guy as he’s walking off the court. Grow up already.

oblivious fan - nba fans

I’ve seen a lot of internet commentators assume this lady a Celtics fans because she’s doing a happy dance, and because the score shows the Celtics are ahead by four with 17 seconds left.

But look closely, everybody. That’s a Bulls jersey she has on—a green, sleeved, St. Patrick’s Day-edition Joakim Noah Bulls jersey. Not a Celtics jersey.

So this lady isn’t a happy Celtics fan. She’s an oblivious Bulls fan.

 

25. What Game Is She Watching?
