ANGRY WITH FANS
 
first off, i would liek to say i went to the game vs the clippers yesterday, and i was pissed at the fact our so called fan base cheered louder for blake fuckin griffin than any of our players combined

i dont give two fucks if we are shit, or if dumbass tank nation is in effect, show some pride in ur city you fan boy band wagon riding douchebags! and yes blake was ineffective, his numbers were decieving.

he only had one decent dunk, which was the alley oop, and ppl stood up like americanized pieces of shit and acted like the dunk was the goldiest thing theyd ever seen! im sorry but demar and sonny receive alleyopps like that all the time and u dont see the fanboys giving them a standing ovation!

i have to say i enjoy blake griffin, wish he was a raptor, but seriously, not EVERY dunk he does is AUTOMATICALLY amazing, and how dare u embarrass ur city by blatantly cheering for the other team likes hes some of sort second coming of christ. there was a section of blake griffen fans chanting his name if u believe it or not.

lol obviously u can see im very bitter about this, and im sure u all will rip me apart, but lets discuss this anyways. is it acceptable to just abandon ur team win the going gets tough, and ride the bandwagon of another team? honestly in my opinion, whats the fun in always cheering for the best team?

anyways DISCUSS

Totally feel ya man. I went to the Lakers game and came away feeling pissed too.

Our fan base gotta step up for our talent, or the players will keep leaving. THIS IS NOT THE MIAMI HEAT. We shouldn't need to FAN UP -_-

the NBA has always placed the individual star above the team. people cheer like crazy for Kobe when he comes here even though he dropped 81 points on us a few years back.

The casual fan is in it for its entertainment value.... Blake's entertaining, unfortunately the Raps aren't...

ahahahahahahahahaha that is the perfect way to put it man!

"OMG WE'RE GOOD ALL OF A SUDDEN!! GUESS ITS TIME TO.... FAN UP!!!"

LilRomeo 02-13-2011 11:43 PM

I saw people cheering very LOUD when Amir superblocked Griffin.

TOAO 02-13-2011 11:44 PM

griffin had about 5 or 6 dunks, and only 1 of them the fans went crazy about. and the truth is, it was the dunk of the game. people came to see basketball. they chant when they see something exciting. what's wrong with that? you're over reacting

Don Vito 02-13-2011 11:51 PM

Because Griffin is hyped right now. Back in the day people did the same thing wherever Vince Carter went.

wait till Miami comes and Lebron puts on a show :yeah:

or not. if it gets ugly early, the stars will probably sit a chunk of the game and let the bench play.

The Clippers fans did the same thing for Vince back in the day.

Although his dunk was amazing.


Didn't really see anything nice from Griffin today. Simple dunks.


EDIT: HOLY SHIT NEVERMIND. That alley-oop was sickkkk. Anyways the others were simple. lol

Toby 02-14-2011 12:58 AM

Nice sound off 123 :yeah:

That reminds me of what I thought after 2 Portland games this season. The Knicks came into town and completely destroyed my Blazers with a series of vicious dunks to finish us off, and had the Rose Garden oohing and ahhing. Then a couple nights later, the Kings came up in here and whooped us thoroughly, but they didn't dunk the crap outta the ball like the Knicks, and the Rose Garden booed their own team off the court.

Portland fans booed their own team, because they tried harder and didn't give up fantastic dunks. That makes a helluva lotta sense.

Ex2k 02-14-2011 01:41 AM

Cheer the talent and entertainment value of that dunk..... why not?

just4_raps 02-14-2011 02:23 AM

i was there too. most people were cheering for both, a raps win, and to see some griffin highlights. you could argue one was greater than the other...but not by much, and it varied throughout the game.

any city would do the same. we want our team to win first and foremost, and secondly see some entertaining ball. nothing wrong with cheering for that.

btw, if you identify your pride for your city by its sports teams...that doesn't say much about your city and your standards of why you love your city. toronto is so much more than the raptors, leafs, blue jays...

anybody find it interesting that Blake Griffin and Kevin Love are both allstars,

they both rebound like crazy but it doesn't show up when it comes to wins, why is that?

both these guys stat pad there rebounds in a similar way that Bosh did in Toronto, steal there teammates rebounds and get into a allstar game

then you look at a guy like Dwight Howard, who instantly made the Magic better because of his rebounds

same with Joakim Noah, his rebounds translate into winning,

another thing if we made some lay ups this game would ahve been a blow out, so how does Bargs lack of rebounding effect the game, especially against rebounding machines like Griffin and Love, which in the last month our only two wins

guys like

Bosh,Griffin,Love, Zach Randolph, David Lee don't effect winning with there rebounding

meanwhile guys like

Howard, Noah, Chandler, Perkins, win with there rebounding


everyone checks the stat sheet and you can see that Griffin got 20 and 14, and your like wow domination, but then you watch the game and you barely notice the guy out there, same with Kevin Love who has great rebounding but when you watch the game you come away thinking Bargs was the best player on the floor while Love is going to a allstar game

that dunk was ridiculous, i remember watching this game and that dunk gave us the momentum later on to win

Lol... the Clippers lost Eric Gordon... that's going to impact your games... Griffin or no Griffin. When he was in the lineup the Clips made a huge charge up the standings. Now they have to rely on Baron (who's too old) and Foye (who's not good enough) for their guard play.

Sorry.... but if you think that Griffin's rebounds don't impact the Clippers' games then you haven't been paying attention.

Ditto for Bosh. Lol... just look at our record now compared to last season and you can see how much he meant to this team.

…Or these guys (Howard, Noah, Chandler, Perkins) simply play on great “teams” and that is why they win.

Boston has been winning with Perk on the side-lines, Dallas has been a great winning team for years. Noah has been out for weeks and the Bulls are still winning.

To put it another way, Perkins plays with 4 all-stars, Chandler plays with a couple of future hall of famers, Noah plays with multiple all-stars.
To say these teams win games because of these guys’ individual rebounding is baseless.

As for Howard, his team revolves around him being the only guy at the basket. So, he better get the rebounds because no one else on his team will.

such a bad analysis and completely false

It's takes a fool to argue with a fool..... but I can't help being foolish. Your argument is a baseless one. The Raptors, as awful as they were and as overvalued as Bosh was, replaced their best player with a TPE. Given that, I'd say that the difference between our current record and last year's lottery placement isn't as great as you seem to think. I understand you choose not to accept that, but why keep bringing it up in an effort to defend Bosh on every thread?
