What is your favourite basketball team and why?
Rahael Yohannes, first-year International Studies
“The New York Knicks. Not because I really care, but because I really like New York. Oh wait! I change my team. So my favourite team is the Dallas Mavericks, because I really like the German guy who won, Dirk Nowitzki, who won the championship two years ago.”
Jesse Stamberg, third-year University-transfer Business
“I hate the [Boston] Celtics. I would say the [Indiana] Pacers right now just because the youth on the team and they’re not really a team that consists of natural all-stars. People that were like number one, like LeBron James and [players] like that. No trade controversies and they weren’t ever put together as this super team whereas most of the bigger teams that are winning a lot of games right now are these super teams or veteran teams such as the San Antonio Spurs. So I think at this point [my favourite team is] the Pacers.”
