Im actually with you laker_link. I thnk being positive and supportive is important in anything in life, even rooting your team on thats sucking it up.
Oh come on, now we're spoiled kids because we expected more out of this team than blowing a 15 point lead on the road to a terrible team? The night after blowing an 18 point lead, thinking maybe they had learned their lesson and would play with more of a sense of urgency. This is not the time to win 3, lose 1, repeat, this is a desperate time, a time to go on a longer win streak no matter what it takes. There's doom and gloom here right now because every time we start believing in this team they lay an egg, it's hard to start to get emotionally involved, start believing again, see signs of hope, and then have all that crushed. If I didn't care I wouldn't be here, if I wasn't going to keep watching and cheering them on I wouldn't be here, but it's a horrible loss and we have as much right to vent about how bad it is as you guys do to vent about how you don't like the doom and gloom.
And no Laker Link, I do not agree, everything cannot always be fixed, especially just because you believe so. Sometimes things are broken, sometimes things do not work, that's reality. This team dug themselves a huge hole, and now they are in a hell of a lot of trouble, that's reality, and losing games like this only makes it worse and shows that they have not truly turned a corner, it was a choke job. No the season is not over after one game, but they are making the road ahead increasingly difficult for themselves by losing games like this, making it damn near impossible really.
Weezy, I must be saying it wrong because I understand what you are saying and do agree with your points, maybe I just have more optimism on the matter. I am trying to say that this was not a good thing to happen, that people have the right to be mad and vent and everything. We screwed up. We had a chance to make things better and didn't, thus leaving us in the same spot as we were yesterday, don't get me wrong.....i understand all that and say "You are right", I just think they still can turn it around.
Maybe I am the only one and if so, that is depressing, but ok.
Look all I am saying is that the physical doom and gloom coming from every fan, that it seemed like would never be those kind of people to react to everything, makes something like this less enjoyable to deal with. To see fellow supporters seem to quit on the drop of a dime, and honestly, I believe you when you say "If I was done, I wouldn't be here" and you being upset about this is understandable, I am not hating on you or saying you all suck or anything to anyone that feels the same way to does the same thing, I am just bummed to see stuff so much, when it seemed like most of us would be there no matter what and wouldn't, like I said, run around like headless chickens, BUT we should be where OKC and the HEAT are right now. We are team that should be blasting people out of the water and looking to win the whole thing this year, obviously something happened and it isn't working, I just don't think we're done here. You said you feel the same way, however you also pointed out, which I get and think the same way about, that we are fighting more uphill right now, and honestly I think and hope we get through it. It won't be as nice as we thought, but I think we can do it.
Feel free, everyone, to post your feelings, good or bad, I am just bummed to see more of it than I ever expected to see on sites like this and LG, but fans need to be fans and act accordingly, so this is to be expected.
