I agree that the Nets have been better. But who are these fans anyways? Their whole team and our city couldn't even sustain itself so it had to move to Brooklyn. I knew someone who went to a Raps game in Brooklyn early last year and some clowns were trying to start a fight with him for wearing his Raptors
gear, and cheering for them. It was pretty surprising considering their team was like a month old at the time. How passionate can one be about a team that just moved into your town?
We're gonna go hard regardless, and for the Nets fans that think the pressure is on us, they're completely wrong. We don't have the highest payroll in the NBA. At the beginning of the season, no one expected us to be here. On the other hand, they were supposed to be a very good team. They did extremely well to come storming back, but they haven't been consistently good. Finished the season quite poorly. We'll have to wait in see if the Nets team people expected finally shows up in the playoffs. The Raps will be ready though.
