A Reddit survey, consisting of over 42,000 votes, has compiled a complete breakdown of the most hated NBA teams by state, and the results are not all that shocking. The Miami Heat are the most hated team in 24 states, the most of any NBA franchise. Congrats, South Beach.
The Thunder are the most hated team in only one state; Washington. The NBA desperately needs to get a franchise back in Seattle. Until then, Sonics fans will go on hating Oklahoma City with the fire of a thousand suns.
The Los Angeles Lakers were the second most hated team, being voted 'most hated' in 21 States, predominately those on the west coast. The Clippers were voted most hated in Mississippi and Tennessee which is just bizarre, and Delaware hates the Cavs for reasons that are beyond me.
