@Klow7: I love our fans to death , but booing one of our players isn't cool and it should NOT be done!! Hopefully next game it won't happen!!

I'd rather here this from someone like Amir or DD than a guy who hasn't had to endure all the painful years.

Lowry is new to the team. It would mean more if somebody like Demar or Amir said it because they've been watching his lazy a$$ for the past 4 years.

This is why I like Lowry, he plays the game and treat his teammates as friends.
His leadership is very important for us going forward, and I like he continues to shout at people, and take that leadership role.

Good on Lowry.

I posted this in another one of the Booing Bargs threads, but I don't blame those who boo him but it looks bad for us.

TorontoSlaptors wrote:In this situation, I believe booing our own players gives us a bad rep around the league. We're trying to attract opposing players here, and after the NYK announcers kept bringing up the point of us booing him, it may come back to bite us. However, I will say that Bargnani deserves it all. Everyone kept trying to motivate him and positive reinforcement never worked for him. A little negativity will help Casey limit his minutes on the floor.

I've never been a fan of booing a single player of your own team. From VC, to TJ, to Andrea

If you're gonna boo, then boo the whole team for putting up **** performances.

It is interesting that nobody felt the need to do this until the deadline passed. It should have been said before regardless of whether him being a teammate for the rest of the season was in doubt or not.
When will we just change the name of 25 of the 30 teams to the Washington Generals?

Please advise….

Yes Bargs has been as frustrating as they come as a player but he didn't deserve the boos tonight. I can't stand Bargs play for the past 7 years and the fans are just fed up but booing isn't gonna do anything.

Bargnani wants the booing to stop? How about playing like he's worth even HALF of 10 mil per year instead of getting teammates to politely ask them to stop booing?

Our fans are (Please Use More Appropriate Word) and brain controlled by the media, but what's new? Booing a player that's been exactly the same for the last five years just because they no longer need him and depend on him screams class

Yep and it's only going to distract the team.
