I don't really have all that much to add. Obviously the main reason that people root against Golden State is because - much like any other team that becomes good out of nowhere - their fanbase is increasingly bandwagon. This kid cheering for both goddamn teams in his home state of Indiana exemplifies that to the highest degree. I get that he's probably not old enough to truly understand the concept of team loyalty, but when he is I want him to look back on this short clip and feel shame. In fact, that's really the only reason I am posting this. I don't harbor any ill will towards him. I just want him to hit puberty and feel embarrassed about having a shirt of an opposing team, getting it signed, and rubbing it right in the face of the team that will probably do their best to turn him into a heavy drinker from age 21 on. It does make me upset that this kid left the building happy after the Pacers lost by damn near 40, but not as upset as it will make him in 10 years when he realizes his off-camera father wanted to leave him in the bathroom after the game ended.
