Add fragile celtics fans to that

i got a 1 day suspension for what they said was "trolling" when all i did was point out exactly what was going on with their team beyond kyrie and how our situation is different

its going to be a rude awakening when they realize the systemic issues went beyond kyrie (Brown-heyward fued runs deep)


Yeah I have a feeling there are some salty Celtics fans on the low. I haven't come across them on the GB but there are some folks who are pretty miffed at the way I've been dogging out the Knicks fans as of late.

As much as I want to hear these guys talk, it may also be strategy. Marks et al might be wanting to keep the attention down on these guys. If the reason Kyrie and KD liked us is because their focus on basketball, then so be it.

I would like to see Kyrie and KD make the trip to China for team chemistry though. Even if they don't play.

i would think that Joe T would want them to come so they can talk business too. Lots of opportunities await those guys in China.

That's a good point. Another incentive for the entire team to be there.

Brooklyn bout to take over China...

There's definitely salt from both fanbase. Can we refer to Knicks fans as MSG (salty) and Boston fans as the Saltics?

anything sodium related will do :lol:

on the low I think some Warrior fans might be hating too. But that's just a hunch though. I think we're going to have beef with multiple fanbases this upcoming season :lol:

I've seen a few, but I would say a lot of the hate are Knicks and Celtics fan. Maybe a few Sixers sprinkled in, and LA still butt hurt about Russell.

Raptors would hate too but they too busy hating on Clippers

:lol:

Yes we can.....

I also think we need a nickname for the new band wagon fans that we will most likely pick-up.

I propose....."Nouveau Venu" it's French for newcomer.. I thought a foreign language nickname makes us sound more elitist ... :D

How about we just call them noobs. :lol:

Not surprised he was sold on the system. Brooklyn is a fun well organized/organic place which is prefect for someone with his personality. He’ll be at peace here with the exception of those annoying and jealous knick fans

The Nets are like a Chinese restaurant. But instead of putting free mints on the front desk, we put draft picks in the bowl.

I don't think it has sunk in yet for me that KD is a Net.

Love seeing him up and about and progressing. I know we are super cautious with injuries which is good but man the thought the Nets playing well without him and then him coming back in March for a playoff run is awesome to dream about.
