The Thread, Becoming Jazz Fans

I saw someone comment on the topic of becoming a jazz fan in todays DB that they had only been fans since the 06-07 season.  I would be curious to find out how long some of us have been fans.  Why did we become fans?

The first jazz game where I truly remember the jazz fan spark being born within me,  was in 97 I was 11 and it was the western conference finals game 6 and it was Stockton's (uh-oh) shot.   I watched many games before this but this is where i really start liking the jazz.

John Stockton Game 6 WCF vs. Houston Highlights (via memoismoney) because you can never see this enough.

 

But it wasn't till the 03-04 season that i became an obsessive blog reader, and internet  jazz news scourer. and hardly missed watching a game.  That was the season where we lost stockton and malone and where we were picked to win less the 9 games.  This was the season that solidified Sloan's hall of fame legacy and the fact that he lost to Hubie brown for COY is a joke, but I digress.  We ended up playing with more heart than any team that year scrappy and play physical it was such such a fun year to watch we ended with a  42-40 record.

The why i am jazz fan is more simple, im from utah my dad was a fan.  Plus i think we play the right way and that we have standards unlike other organizations.  Oh and my cousins are laker fans.    


So what is your Jazz story?  When how and why?
