What do people chant together to encourage their team in NBA?

I like watching NBA. I really want to know what the audience cheer for their team? English is not my mother tongue,so I cant figure out myself. Thanks.

It's in support of the team they want to win. We call it "team spirit" and it is meant to encourage the players on the court. You can do this for any sport!

You pretty much answered your question within the question: to encourage the team. If a team is losing, they need encouragement, so the fans use team spirit to get them pumped up and hype. Make them excited, not wanting to quit. By the way, the Spurs are gonna win. :)

It depends. Some teams have mottos that the crowd chants. Other times, the team just chants the star player. Right now, LeBron James is doing alright, so people may chant, "James! James! James!" The most common form of chant is the team chant. The People tell, "Lets go Heat, Lets go!" But most of the time, while you're watching it on TV, you'll hear a mixture of different chants from different groups. Some people just scream. Others create their own chants. It's all really random.

Forgot this one. This is extremely common: if the favorite team doesn't have the ball, people will yell, "Defense!"

Sometimes if your team is losing or the other team has the ball, you yell "defense." Like "de--fense." Then they'll clap twice and say "defense" again, until their team has possession again.
