Why didnt you boo him when he was horrible then? Why do it now when he is a moderately impactful bench player that is now in game shape trying to work his way back from injury and back into the rotation? Makes no sense.

Decent man D, and decent offense off the bench on road games. like I said moderately impactful bench player. But youre right hees way more deserving of being booed now then when he was shooting us out of games and not in game shape at the beginning of the year. Where were the boo birds then?

Don't see why not if they are getting blown out on their own home court!

I think the Jazz were booed by their home crowd when Houston was just kicking the crap out of them. I thought it was acceptable then.

Then again Jazz fans just love to boo almost anything. Which I approve of, because disgust is better than apathy or blind loyalty.

I know he's not going to be the next Dirk and he's got some limitations, but I just want him to at least put some effort out there and pretend like he actually cares about basketball. If he had the heart and hustle of Amir Johnson, he'd be one hell of a player.


You want him to play better, so you boo him before he even enters the game? Brilliant!

What exactly do you guys gain from booing him? I don't get it.


If it's a player with any sort of heart he might actually show some effort.

But from what I've seen of Bargs (granted, not a lot) he'll just go though the motions and rob the Raptors of money. He's an extremely worthless player, and has no heart whatsoever. Since the fans can't get good play out of him, might as well boo him. It would make me feel better at least if I were a Raptors fan at the game.

Looking at his box scores is comical. He's scored double digits 17 games this season and the Raptors have won 3 of them. He has to be in the running for being one of the most uneffective scorers in league history.

Booing a bust is OK. If you pay for the ticket, do what you want as long as it is within the rules.

I would counter that with that American fans are far better than Euros, who blindly follow anything regardless of the crap product they put on the court/field.

Bargnani apologist needs to stop expanding this topic to the whole team, cuz it's not the team, it's just Barney alone, quit dragging everyone down and exaggerating. Fan can boo whoever they think deserved it, especially when they pay these $$$ tickets. If you dont wanna boo your lover boy that's fine, but quit being a nazi trying to pressure everyone else to stop booing Barney.

Wouldn't that rather depend on the money they spend respectively for the respective team?

If you as a fan are unhappy with the decisions made by the team (and Bargnani was signed by the Raptors!), you probably shouldn't pay for your tickets in order to make the team realise that they are at fault (in your opinion). But what exactly does it change, if Bargnani gets a treatment like that? Is he going to be any better? Will that raise his trade value? What exactly do fans expect in such a case?

Yeah, they can, but what exactly do they want to accomplish with that? What kind of influence will that have on the decisions by other players to play for such a team? Does any fan ever thought about the possible consequences?

If the team loses fine. All teams lose games. But if they lose because they gave no effort then you have the right to boo them.

I think there's a difference between booing your team's performance and booing a player.

Bargs deserves it.

I remember a game Chicago fans booing Boozer for poor performance. I remember a game Chicago fans booing the team for poor performance and getting blown out. That's fine with me. I'd boo if my team is underperforming horribly.

I am almost guaranteed that people, who are defending Bargnani, barely even watch any of the Raptors games. We had to suffer with watching him play on our team for more than 6 years now. He has absolutely no heart and if you know anything about Raptors fans, they value heart the most. That's why Amir is one of the fan favorites and why the fanbase hated seeing Davis get traded. Bargs doesn't play ANY help defense, doesn't rebound (4.5 rebounds per 36 minutes for a 7 footer), is incredibly inefficient and can't hit any shots in the clutch. I completely understand all of the fans frustration, because this was the first time that it actually looked like Bargs was going to get traded, but he's still with us. At least he's not in the starting lineup anymore, but it's very frustrating to watch Jonas, who's fighting for every rebound and is leaving his heart on the court, get benched for someone like Andrea. Someone compared Bargnani to playing a similar role on the team as Blatche did on the Wizards and I completely agree, only Blatche at least could get some rebounds.

Absolutely. When they are playing like trash, not putting in proper effort or acting like divas not caring about the fans who show up for their games, then you boo the **** out of them.

So what you're saying is Bargnani is not underperforming?
