If you’re an NBA fan and enjoy the Golden State Warriors’ brand of basketball, you might have more matches out there for you on the online dating world than you would think.
A recent report was just released showing that the NBA is the most-popular sport mentioned in online dating profiles with Major League Baseball, rugby, boxing and the NFL rounding out the top five.
The NBA has seen a message rate increase of 111%. MLB comes in second with a 108% increase. In what has to be considered a nice little increase, mentions of the NFL have increased by 69%.
In terms of the Association, it’s all about the Warriors.
- Golden State Warriors: 80%
- Portland Trail Blazers: 75%
- Indiana Pacers: 71%
- Orlando Magic: 69% (nice)
- Oklahoma City Thunder: 67%
This could be due to the Northern California Bay Area being among the first regions to issue stay-at-home orders during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Despite their team boasting a league-worst 15-50 record when the NBA season was suspended, Warriors fans are missing basketball.
Blazers fans seem to be talking a lot about basketball on their dating profiles, too. Maybe we will see some love children named Steph and Damian born here soon.
