    I'm pulling for

    Hello,

    What does "pulling for" mean in the sentence below?


    A. I think Sacramento has a strong team this year.
    B: True, but I'm pulling for the Lakers all the way.



    Thanks for your help in advance.

    "Pulling for" means the same as "rooting for." As in rooting for a sports team.

    Re: I'm pulling for

    In the UK I think a fan 'roots for' and a team-member 'pulls for' (but maybe that's just me).

    Re: I'm pulling for

    So meaning:

    to support or encourage a person or team.

    Thanks.
