Can’t Stop Talking About Basketball

Last night I traveled to the Izod Center to see the New Jersey Nets and the NBA Referees defeat my Sacramento Kings.

I’m not gonna get into the game. I don’t really want to talk about it. But, one thing I do want to talk about is the crowd. Not a lot of people go to Nets games. Kind of reminded me of the Expos games I used to attend. But that’s not what this post is about.

There are a crazy amount of Jews who attend Nets games. I’m not talking about people I’m guessing are Jewish. I’m talking kippah wearing/long skirt Jews.

This got me thinking. What professional sports team has the most Jewish fans? I’m not talking numbers here. I’m talking percentages. Sure the New York Knicks probably have a good amount. But everyone in NY roots for the Knicks.

I have a couple of nominees: The Nets, Brooklyn Cyclones, and the Florida Marlins. Each team has very little fans and are dense Jewish populations. If baseball were played in the winter, the answer would hands down be the Marlins. But the answer really might be the Nets.
