"Love" is not a word often associated with the NBA, but each team has at least one personality that its fans adore.
Typically, fan favorites are associated with an organization's best player, yet in reality, this is not always the case. Fan bases shower their superstars with applause, but they remain just as loyal to the player better known for his personality than on the court prowess.
More often than advertised low-key players generate a heralded type amount of support. Whether it's their swagger, humility or how they identify themselves to the rest of the world, certain athletes just appeal to fans for reasons outside of sheer talent.
