ESPN Poll shows that HEAT are most popular NBA team in the US


According to a new ESPN poll, the Miami Heat have jumped the Lakers as the NBA’s most popular team. This is in stark contrast to also being the most Hated team in America so it seems like the Heat is just on everyone’s mind. The poll was conducted over a 12 month period that ended in March so the recent Finals run didn’t effect the votes. The Heat are also the nation’s 6th most overall popular team coming behind a group of NFL Teams including the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers.
