ESPN recently updated its “sports misery index” and Arizona fans probably won’t be thrilled with how it ranked Arizona’s four major professional sports teams.
Arizona is home to four of the 40 most miserable fan bases in sports, according to ESPN’s rankings.
Phoenix Suns fans “lead” the list of Arizona fans mired in misery, coming in as the No. 12 most miserable fan base among all 123 major professional sports fan bases.
Suns fans, who get to see their team tip-off its season on Wednesday, are the second-most miserable fans in the NBA, according to the rankings.
Arizona Coyotes fans make up the third-most miserable fan base in the NHL and the 26th most miserable fan base among the four major professional sports, while the Cardinals come in 10th on the list ranking the misery of NFL fans and 33rd overall.
The Diamondbacks evidently have the least miserable major sports fan base in Arizona.
