Magic’s Nikola Vucevic trolls Terrence Ross for Bucs bandwagoning in Twitter exchange


Orlando Magic All-Star Nikola Vucevic doesn’t like bandwagoner fans. Looks like even his teammates are not spared from this. Terrence Ross found that out the hard way on Sunday, as he got trolled by the 29-year-old Montenegrin on Twitter after pledging his allegiance to the NFL’s most hyped team this year, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Ross tweeted in support of the Bucs in their season opener against the New Orleans Saints. Vucevic couldn’t help but chime in by responding with the popular “Toy Story” meme about bandwagon fans, which sparked a hilarious exchange between the Magic teammates.

In Terrence Ross’ defense, he remains loyal to the state of Florida since Tampa Bay is just 78 miles away from Orlando. But as Nikola Vucevic cheekily pointed out, Florida does have three NFL teams (Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Miami Dolphins), so Ross’s sudden affinity for the Bucs does appear like some good old bandwagoning.

Ross, meanwhile, is not alone aboard the Tampa Bay hype-train, as the Bucs became the talk of the NFL after the arrival of former New England Patriots superstars Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski in the offseason. Unfortunately for Ross and other Bucs fans, their team lost against the Saints on Sunday, 23-34.

Vucevic and Ross, on the other hand, does have a tight bond both on and off the court, so the exchange is nothing but some ribbing from close friends. The two Magic players came up big for Orlando this season, as they managed to surprise the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1 of their East first-round match-up. The Magic, however, was eliminated early after dropping the next four games.
