I was a huge Warren Moon fan and hate Dallas. That pissed me off. I knew the Bills would just choke against Dallas and wanted Moon to get his shot.

The only one that mattered for raptors I can think of was Game 7 against philly in eastern semi finals 2001 Vince carter missing game winning shot. Maybe best chance to go too the finals that year

No one was scared of bucks. Lakers would have destroyed us in finals. No problem there lol

But that was when I was in elementary school 16 years ago. I don't remember it that well

But the most painful loss for me that I remember really well was 2013 game 6 finals. I wasn't spurs fan just hated the Miami heat so bad. When ray Allen hit that 3. I had to go on a walk at midnight after the game to cool myself off lol
Let's go Raptors

Is that an issue?


I wouldn't say it's an issue, it's just that a lot of people believe that if you're a fan of a team - that team is your only team.

My friend is the same. He's a Jays fan but is also a Dodgers "fan". I don't like it because it seems that he's only an LAD fan when Toronto isn't winning.

Not sure if it's the same for you but it's just not a common practice for the die-hards.



I like my own teams, I just think being a die hard fan doesn't give me reason to knock a casual fan or someone who likes multiple teams. At the end of the day it doesn't ruin my quality of life

One time an air conditioner broke before a finals game and the heat lost. I will forever hate air conditioners for that loss.

"Most" painful, the options would be Game 5 vs Suns, Game 5 vs Thunder, or Game 6 vs Rockets. I would have to choose game 6 vs Rockets. Game 5 vs Thunder sucked, yes, Clippers would have gone up 3-2, yes, but the Spurs went up 3-2 vs the Clippers in 14-15, and look who won that series? Game 5 vs Suns might actually beat the Thunder loss, the reason being that the Clippers won game 6 unlike vs the Thunder where they lost game 6 anyways.

So Game 6 vs the Rockets, awful loss, very disappointing.

Easily game 7 against Houston in 95, mainly because the Suns were up 3-1 and had game 5 at home and it went into OT and they lost it, so as much as that sucked, I just kept thinking.."if we lose game 6 we better be able to win game 7" and it came down to the very end. No road team had won a game 7 since 82.

Patrick Beverley taking out Russell Westbrook with a dirty play in the 1st round of the 2013 playoffs. That one killed me. Even though we won that series, I knew we were done without Russ and I've never forgiven Beverley.

2006 1st round vs Suns, Game 6. What a garbage Lakers team, but we were one rebound from beating the Suns. Man, I was pissed.

No road team had won a game 7 since 82. Also, Ainge shot a 3 and got fouled at the end, but only got 2 free throws because that rule about getting 3 free throws for 3s didn't exist so the Suns lost by 1.


Rockets were trying to take the foul there, the foul was called on the ground, not in the act of shooting, that's why Ainge only got two FT's.

As a Raps fan, a lot of people will say 2001 game 7 against the Sixers, but I thought 2014 game 7 against the Nets was slightly worse. Vince Carter missed a game winner, but Kyle Lowry got blocked on his, on our own homecourt no less. Not trying to be poetic or anything, but what it felt to me was the Vince Carter game winner represented what could have been, and the Lowry blocked defined who we were.

2011 Western semis vs Mavs. We got swept by a worse team on paper after winning back-to-back titles. Fortunately, that collapse led to Phil's departure.
Arguably the greatest franchise ever

Spurs fans have been blessed but there are three that are still painful to me to this day:

1. 2013 Game 6: Nba Finals vs the Heat (Heartbreaker)

2. 2004 Game 5 vs Lakers: D Fish 0.4 shot (smh)

3. 2006 Game 7 vs Mavs: Manu fouls Dirk to give them a three pt play and eventually the ball game.
(unfairly, I've cringed every time Manu plays D in clutch situations bc of this, even this past yr w the block on Harden)
