Oakley lays into Toronto fans
 
The last part...........:wtf:


Quote:

Oakley let loose Tuesday morning on a number of topics — including the fans in Toronto, Bryan Colangelo’s strategy of building around a three-point shooting centre and the Carmelo Anthony trade.

When asked why it seems star players in Toronto often aren’t embraced by the fan-base the way hard workers like Oakley and Reggie Evans usually are, Oakley first corrected this scribe by saying about Evans: “We’re not even in the same conversation but go ahead ...” before giving his always unique take.

“When I first came to Toronto I told (the fans) my thing was, make the team better every year and that’s what I did,” explained Oakley.

“They are into the numbers and the hype but then when the hype leaves, they get mad at the person.

“Like (Chris) Bosh, they boo him. Why boo him? Why boo Vince (Carter), Tracy (McGrady)? I mean, why boo any of us? We didn’t do nothing wrong, we didn’t trade ourself, management did that.”

I agree... why boo Vince? Oak speaks the truth but it's partial

I like Oak, but he's off on this one, especially about Vince.

vince gave up by faking injuries and not trying in his last months here. he was averaging what 15-3 with us before he left and 26-7-4 with the nets the same season? we had all the right to boo his ass and we still do. he screwed this organization by forcing a trade since he wasnt playing up to his contract value and thus we couldnt get decent returns either. managements fault my ass

Bosh was a tease.
Vince was a bitch.
T-Mac was a Diva.
And apparently Oak is an idiot.

They all deserve their boo's now, yes including Oak for being that dumb.

Maybe so but to say Vince wasn't to blame is complete Bullshit. He pouted and demanded a trade.

DonMughal 02-22-2011 06:05 PM

The only players who really deserve boo's are Vince and Turk. I don't get why people boo McGrady.

It was deserved 10yrs ago, but at this point he should be an after thought imo.

Why did everyone hate him? Wasn't he a FA?

He pulled essentially what Bosh pulled last summer.

booing is fun

Aar_Canada 02-22-2011 06:36 PM

I've said it before, but I was at one of Vince's last games and during timeouts, when he was on the floor, he'd grab a chair and sit 10 feet away - almost in the middle of the court - from the huddle while they drew up plays. Towel on his head, looking off into space, sulking. This is why he's booed. Total insult to loyal fans who pay good money to come watch guys throw a bouncy ball around.

Wasn't Oak a ball buster? Like, if a teammate wasn't being a 'man', he'd have a word? Because Vince was a child.

Blazer fans boo their team if we lose 2 straight

komot 02-22-2011 06:46 PM

they all got boo'd because they all gave up on the RAPS. as raps fans you will have hatred no matter how well they played while they were here.

Kobe>LeBron 02-22-2011 06:52 PM

Maybe if they weren't such whiny little bitches the fans would appreciate them.

Vince pretty much forced us to trade him. Bosh with all his cameras and being an attention whore all off-season long and pretty much continued to lead the fans thinking he might re-sign here.

I think T-Mac left because he didn't want to share spotlight with Vince though I don't really think T-Mac should get booed.

And why is it a big deal if fans boo them anyways?

I love Oak, but obviously he's out to lunch here. I believe this isn't the first time he has said something that doesn't make any sense. Plus he's middle aged now - delusions starting to set in.

He was middle aged when he retired. Now he's pushing 50.

So you have proof that Vince "faked injuries"? Please share your link with us. I think you're lying. Leo Rautins saying he faked injuries doesn't make it a fact.
