J. J. Watt has a good problem on his hands: His hometown Milwaukee Bucks are in the finals, and his new hometown Phoenix Suns also happened to make the big dance. Does Watt abandon ship and pull for his local Arizona squad led by Chris Paul and Devin Booker, or does he stay loyal?
He took this to Twitter, as he always does, for an answer.
Watt has 5.6 million Twitter followers, partially because he’s a beast football player, but also because he understands how social media works. Twitter is an echo chamber where people frantically seek out celebrities and average Joes to agree with them on everything, including sports team rooting interests. Now that the future hall of famer is letting both fan bases know he’s technically a free agent fan, they’re all going berserk in his mentions.
I’m just saying, as a lifelong Phoenix Suns fan, that J. J. would be a fool to pass up on this Suns bandwagon. Suns in 6.
