Don't think anyone was questioning buckpack's credibility.
I don't even really care that you wanted us to lose, I just can't manage to hope for my team to lose the game unless they are tanking or there is something tangible to hope for. I find it dubious that whether we make a move was predicated on beating BKN, and I find it very hard to believe that a literally buzzer beating loss after a good game from BJ is going to be the catalyst for a franchise changing trade.
Honestly if we are basing our long term strategy on the results of the 2 games before the deadline, we are doomed anyway.
Maybe so. But I justify rooting for what I want to happen by simply trying to play the percentages. I'm choosing the info I feel is most likely to be most credible and rooting for losses based on my -possibly erroneous- interpretation that losses make what I think is best more likely to take place, even if that only very slightly changes the percentages of what I want to have happen in favor of it happening. Even if a couple losses before the deadline only changes a Monta trade from happening from 1% to 2%, it's still worth hoping for IMO...
