Colin Cowherd is rooting for “the bad guy” in the NBA playoffs.
Cowherd is all aboard the Brooklyn Nets bandwagon and wants to see them win it all this year.
“The Brooklyn Nets are everything that’s bad with basketball,” Cowherd said. “They have the most starting lineups, one of their stars refused to get vaccinated, so selfishly he wasn’t available for home games, they never play together, they’re bad defensively, their bench stinks. Yet, I am rooting for them to win. I’m sorry, sometimes uncle Colin roots for the bad guy. Listen, Hannibal Lecter, Darth Vader, The Joker. Villains make movies more fun.”

The Nets are set to play in Game One of the NBA’s play-in tournament on Tuesday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Whoever wins this short series will take one of the final playoff spots and play one of the top teams in the conference.
If the Nets can get past the Cavs, they may be a popular pick to go deep into the playoffs.
