Default Bosh & Nelson Regarding the ACC Booing

``I don't think the energy is good. The energy in the building isn't good,'' Bosh said afterward. ``We get down a little bit and everybody is like 'Oh my god.' Everything just goes to shambles and I think we feed off that too much. We can't pay attention to what's in the stands.

``I don't boo,'' he added. ``If you have a bad fiscal year, how about I boo you?''

Nelson even had something to say about the hostility the crowd showed toward Bosh and the Raptors.

``I don't think that is right for any players,'' the Magic guard said. ``Everybody has a right to do what they want at a game because they pay their money, but at the same time he is out there fighting and playing hard. You shouldn't boo the guy, he is an all-star and is great for this team. I don't think he deserves to get booed, I don't think the team deserves to get booed.''

Bosh looked angry through much of the afternoon, including when he uncharacteristically missed a pass from Calderon that went sailing into the stands.

``I expect myself to play well, but missing a pass, that pissed me off, I'm not going to lie,'' Bosh said. ``I was in a rush, I was trying to go fast, I had the ball in my hands and I looked away ... I've really been struggling at catching the ball the last two games and that's unacceptable.''

I think the situation's clear. Raptor fans have passion and fire, the players clearly have no interest in those things. Perhaps Bosh would be more comfortable playing in Memphis where the team could not give a shit game to game and live without consequences or fans who notice. Seems like a fit to me.

All I can say though, is if we're making Bosh cry by caring about this team, New York or Chicago is going to send him to a psychiatric hospital. Watch where you're stepping Chris. The grass is not always greener on the other side.

I'm pretty certain CB4 is as good as gone. A shame though. Raptors fans will never be happy. So if its not Chris they're going to boo, it'll be Andrea or Jose next once Bosh is elsewhere.

I'd not boo them right at this moment but if I were in the ACC seeing them losing like that without a fight, I'd boo them np. I like Bosh but when I saw him at the bench smiling like Tracy Mc Greedy while his team is losing bad and some nasty words came into my mind.

I was at the game and if Jameer Nelson thought the Raps played hard he was watching another game. The effort as a whole since Triano took over has been horrible and yesterday was another example. I dont' mind watching a team go down fighting but other than Graham and Bargnani yesterday that wasn't the case and so as much as I don't beleive in booing a team i support i don't agree with Bosh or Nelson that it was unwarranted.

ACC fans never boo'd Sam's teams before this year. When we won 27 and 33 games with guys like Bonner fighting out every possession, we never booed. It's only now that we have lots of talent but no heart or stones that the fans boo and i hate to admit it but i side with them over whiny players.

But do we really have lots of talent? Maybe I'm in the minority because I don't think this team is overly talented at all but alot of Raptors fans really do overrate the "talent" on this team. I'll never figure that out.

Who care boys, Bosh is gone.

That means we can trade him now for that stud winger we've longed for since healthy Vince.

And in regards to booing, when Vince played hard, no-one ever booed that team, its was only after he,gasp, quit on the team.

Only difference now is that BC is smarter than Babs and will trade Bosh when his value is high, before Bosh totally gives up and demands a trade.

Bosh see you with Portland @ the ACC in 2009.

Does it matter if we're not trying?

That said, I think so... the talent is there at most positions... the mix of players isn't the best i'll admit but individual talent is better than in previous years. The last two teams we had won because they had chemistry (two years ago) and effort (last year). This year we have neither chemistry nor effort.

Shit, I boo'ed from home at one point.

When the players were all hittin' the locker rooms at the half, The Raps all went together like a team should.

But not Bosh, nooo of course not. Why would he stick with his team when it's more fun to laugh and joke around with the OTHER team who are currently kicking his team's ass thanks to him bringing the suck.

Makes me angry.

Don't go outta your way to fraternize with the opposing team when YOUR team could probably use more comraderie.

JESUS H. CHRIST does Chris Bosh have some huge character flaws.

Question: Why do we always end up with mentally weak franchise players? things get tough and they want to run and hide... Little do they know that they had a hand in things getting to the level that it's at.

At this point best thing would be to trade JO for Marion, Marbury or any other huge expiring contract... trade Bosh for young stud, good draft pick and expiring contract... tank the season and go for a high draft pick.

Next season Raps could have two great draft guys, young promising player and money to sign decent veteran or two... plus Jose & Bargnani... at least they cannot be any worst what they are now.

It's funny Bargnani has been booed more than Bosh and he's never complained. All he's done is stepped his game up.

Y'know, if Chris went to a big market, US team and this happened, he'd probably not complain, "Cuz, yo, the tradition and these fans know their basketball and I ate MAC-Donalds in Beijing, yo."

Chris better smarten up, or I'll remove him from my friends on Facebook. That's right. You hear me, Chris?!
