All Aboard The Bandwagon: Teams you should root for when the 2020 Pro Sports Seasons Returns.

If you are like me and most of your teams are eliminated from playoff contention but you still want to watch and root for a sports teams, here are the teams that you should root for. And if you dont have a team for the upcoming seasons because your tired of your team, think about becoming a fan of these teams.


NBA:

  1. Miami Heat: In my opinion, the dark horse to win the east. They have talent, they have stars and Eric Spoelstra is still one of the best coaches in the league.

  2. LA Lakers: If you want to root for the team with one of the best chances to win a championship, Lebron James' Lakers are for you. Nuff said.

  3. Utah Jazz: Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert headline this western conference team. Plus they have the best throwback jerseys in the NBA (yes, I do own one).

  4. Milwaukee Bucks: Giannis Antetokumpo (I don't know if I spelled that right). But you get my point.


MLB:

  1. New York Yankees: A team that adds Garrett Cole and already should have won the American League last year should be a team you jump on the bandwagon for.

  2. Los Angeles Dodgers: Fans should hop on this team until the playoffs, solely cause they cant win the World Series. But adding Mookie Betts and David Price might change things...

  3. Washington Nationals: Like any good bandwagon team, always root for the previous years champions!

  4. Toronto Blue Jays: This is more of a team to start rooting for now so when they are really good in a year or two, you can be like the cubs fans of 2014. You rooted for them just before they got good.

NFL:

  1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Bruce Ariens funky hats should be enough reasons to switch to this team. And yes, I did buy and have a Tom Brady Bucs shirt myself.

  2. Kansas City Cheifs: Mahomes magic and defending Super Bowl champions... Too easy

  3. Tennessee Titans: Since they beat the Ravens in the playoffs last season (and I dont believe they will be this years "One and Done" team), they should get as many new fans as possible. Derek Henry is a monster, Mike Vrable is a great coach and either Tannenhill will be their QB for the next year or they will get a new young QB, watch out for the Titans.

  4. Arizona Cardinals: An offense of Kyler Murray, Larry Fitzgerald, Kenyon Drake and now Deandre Hopkins too. This team will be wildly fun to watch on offense.


NHL:

  1. Vegas Golden Knights: a team thats from Vegas and was the best team in the Western Conference before the Covid-19 pandemic hit. They also have the best record in the league.

  2. Boston Bruins: Top team in the east, and they should have an easy route to the Stanley Cup.

  3. Toronto Maple Leafs: Auston Matthews tested positive recently but by the time the league starts back up, he should be healthy and ready to go.

  4. Chicago Blackhawks: Always a dark horse team with Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Corey Crawford and others. Definetly keep an eye out for them.

MLS:

  1. Atlanta United: They have been the top team in the MLS the last couple of seasons and Josef Martinez is back (he was the 2018 MLS MVP).

  2. Sporting Kansas City: Another team that was 2-0 at the time of the Covid pandemic.

  3. Seattle Sounders: Defending MLS Cup champions.

  4. Toronto FC: They Lost in the MLS Cup championship last season so they will definetly want revenge on Seattle.

NWSL (National Womens Soccer League):

  1. North Carolina Courage: They won their match today against the Portland Thorns, so I guess they are good. Go root for them.
