Twitter rolled out a new map that shows which NBA team is most followed in what area of the country. We highlighted the most notable facts in this new feature. 

-The Los Angeles Lakers have the biggest following in the country, beating out every NBA team by a substantial margin. 

-Despite being one of the best teams in the league, the Golden State Warriors get little love in the state of California. 

-To no surprise, the Toronto Raptors rule the northern area of North America. 

-Alaska is divided between the Raptors, Miami Heat and Lakers. It looks like some LeBron fans stayed loyal in Alaska. 

-The Heat dominate Florida, leaving little respect to the Orlando Magic.

For more facts, check out the map.
