It’s official: Dallas Cowboys superstar linebacker is a bandwagon NBA fan.

One would think that Micah Parsons is devoted to the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers or Dallas Mavericks for obvious reasons. The Penn State product is from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and supports both the 76ers and Philadelphia Phillies of Major League Baseball.

But playing in Dallas, one could understand why Parsons might also side with Luka Doncic’s Mavs, who are now just one win away from the franchise’s first NBA Finals appearance since 2011.

Parsons attended the Mavericks’ Game 4 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday night, along with Cowboy teammates Osa Odighizuwa and Trevon Diggs. Unfortunately for the fourth-year linebacker, his decision to show up in a Mavs jersey led to social media detectives exposing him as a bandwagon fan:

We outlined above why Micah Parsons roots for the 76ers and Mavericks, but his apparent Boston Celtics fandom is a mystery. They’re the 76ers’ archrivals and have dispatched Philly from the postseason thrice since 2018.

Well, the good thing about being a bandwagon fan is that you’re never supporting a losing franchise. Parsons’ 76ers were eliminated by the New York Knicks in the opening round, but his Mavericks need just one more victory to set up an NBA Finals clash with his other team, the Celtics.

Micah Parsons Is In Line For Another Monster Year

It is no coincidence that the Cowboys have recorded three straight 12-win seasons in the Parsons era. The ex-Penn State star joined Dallas in 2021 and has single-handedly turned their defense into a consistent top-10 unit.

Parsons has racked up 40.5 sacks, eight pass breakups and seven forced fumbles over his first three seasons. The 2021 Defensive Rookie of the Year is set to go off yet gain as the Cowboys try to bounce back from last year’s stunning Wild Card Round loss to the Green Bay Packers.
