    I don't even care if its 'one clown'. Teams tell their fans - WE WANT YOU THERE EARLY AND WE WANT YOU LOUD. The ABC announcing team remarked early in the series that the Toronto crowd was late arriving after halftime, and the lack of energy made a difference in GS going on runs.
    So now you want all this nuance?
    For fuck's sake. Build a bridge and get over it. Durant has bigger issues than the dude waving bye bye and the opposing crowd cheering.

    Jesus.

    One guy?

    You must be Trump’s crowd size estimator.

    Apparently heckling Durant was not enough for some Raptors "fans."

    Oh, please. As someone raised as a Philadelphia fan, all this is pretty weak tea.

    Many people need to learn how to be a fan from Charles Barkley.

    There was a lot of this last night and it was teetering on overkill. It sucks if Durant is seriously hurt. I hope no one wants that. But the dude has played for 12 years, made hundreds of millions of dollars and has had one of the greatest careers in pro basketball. Maybe I'm cold, but I just don't think KD getting more hurt after opting to play while hurt is the grave travesty the Twitterverse has made it out to be.

    Just so I'm clear - the narrative has gone from KD had "given up" on the Warriors to now the Warriors were reckless in letting him play. My head is spinning. I get it - particularly with the NY honks who had already bought their Knicks Durant jerseys but I sometimes wonder if these clowns listen to their own shows.

    Nope, not really the narrative either way.

    Well, that’s just, like, your opinion, man.

    That's what I've been hearing on sports radio - granted it's only sports radio where there needs to be a designated "bad guy" at all times.

    Since there's no offseason thread I know of yet ...
