Every NBA fanbase has a favorite player.
In some cases, that player has represented the franchise as an All-Star for the last decade. In others, he is a rookie who carries the hopes of a rebuilding franchise on his shoulders.
For teams like the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers and San Antonio Spurs, the favorite player among its fans is strikingly clear.
For those franchises in transition, however—like the Detroit Pistons, Toronto Raptors and Orlando Magic—the favorite player may be more subjective.
In an attempt to provide some metric of general popularity, the Twitter following of each player has also been identified in highlighting the favorites for each team.
