Thumbs up A Message of Respect

I wanted to make a post on here regarding how much I admire the Toronto Raptors. You guys have the most passionate and rowdy fans in the entire league, and you guys truly are respected among the league even if you don’t receive much media attention here in the states. I am indeed a Nets fan, I grew up one, was a fan way before their success in the early to mid 2000’s. They were a really cruddy team that I had to endure countless seasons of almost unwatchable basketball. So your pain over the years is certainly relatable.

I really respect this young and very athletic team and out of all the teams in the league, gun to the head and I had to pick if the nets were to lose in the playoffs, it would be to you guys. Of course, I am passionately rooting for the Nets in this series (going to Game 3 and 4!) but I wouldn’t hate it if I saw you guys get far in the playoffs. Another thing you guys have to look forward to is seeing these young guys get better and better and in result the team improving a lot. If the Raptors do lose to the Nets in this series, I wouldn’t be down about it. You have something that not many teams have, a very bright future that I can see a winning culture being built there. Much respect to you all.

Jeff you just have to ruin everything dont you?

Anyways TheTruth, thanks for taking time to register and post.

Regardless of what Masai said, it was all in good nature, I would be happy to see the Brooklyn Nets beat the Miami Heat.

Real classy of you to say those things, may the best team win.

I just witness a lot of jabs back and forth on the internet on various websites between Nets and Raptors fans. I thought I would go on a prominent forum for Raptors fans and change it up a bit by saying something I honestly feel.

glad to read your post. very warming words.

honestly i kind feel the same way. if we lose this serie against you, (i would be crush) but at least Nets have a real chance to beat the Heat. so i would cheer for yours in the second, of course only if you beat us in the first round !!!

Thanks Truth, but Brooklyn has players I just can't stand - especially Beetlejuice (Paul Pierce) - that I just cannot reciprocate the sentiment.
