Currently, sports is dominated by bandwagons. The Warriors have been in the Finals the past three years and won twice, the Pittsburgh Penguins have won the NHL the past two years, and the Patriots have won two of the past three years. This has inspired many people to cheer for the three teams above. The Warriors went from the 15th most popular team in the NBA according to fivethirtyeight.com in 2014 to, in my opinion, one of the most popular team in all sports now in 2017. The Warriors have so many fans made in the past couple of years. For example, take a typical friend. Lots of Warriors fans were never fans of basketball until last year or two years ago when they decided that they are die-hard Warriors fans. Usually, it can be embarrassing to people if they are bandwagons-it shows that their love of basketball is just for the winners. And if they are bandwagons, they should be embarrassed! Choose a team, and cheer for it. It is not okay to be a bandwagon jumper.
