Your little brain can't comprehend that fans have a preference. Even if fans want their team to tank, it's not going to actually happen.
This board is for fans who want to share their opinions and views about the Celtics. If I want the Celts to tank, that's my opinion. I have that right because I'm living in a country where freedom of speech is important.
Of course my adult's brain can't comprehend what you said.
As a fan following American sports for 30+ years (British soccer don't have this tanking concept since they don't have a draft), I've NEVER heard of fans tanking. Teams/players tanking? sure.
Fans? they don't "tank". We don't call it "tanking". We call it "jumping off the bandwagon", "jumping ship", "bandwagon fans". Fans don't tank because that's an actual "action" carried out on the court/field.
If you say you "jump off the bandwagon", sure, then I get it. Is that what you mean? How long have you been in this country? following American sports?
However, fans usually jump off the bandwagon because the team sucks (e.g. Bobcats). Never heard of fans wishing the team lose in a conference finals in order to avoid losing to a superior team (Kobe/Shaq) in the finals. "Pick your fights"? What a laugh!!!!
In normal circumstances, fans want to see their team going down fighting, not going down fishing. There isn't one single Celtic fan in the world would rather see the Celtics fish in June than fighting to the last second (albeit losing to the Lakers) in June. Your fellow fans' testimony after the game 7 loss proved you dead wrong...
So by not playing while the Lakers were beating the Nets, Magic, 76ers, Pistons in the final, it's actually a discredit to the Celtics, even more so than the Lakers losing in the finals...
The difference between you and me is I don't need to go to Laker forums to tell Laker fans that the Celts are #1.
Yep, because the difference between this forum and the Lakers forum is that there isn't any
"XXX punching the Celtics in the grill" after every Celtics loss;
or topic like
the end of Howard to the Celtics;
Even doc thinks the Celtics are crappy;
Boston Celtics say Paul Pierce won't be ready for start of training camp | NESN
SMELTICS ELIMINATION THREAD!
Because Boston has no NFL team!
Minnesota must be the stupidest team in NBA history, etc.
A Celtics forum posting all these bashing on the Lakers, that's the dictionary definition of "inferiority complex"...
I don't recall seeing any of those threads anywhere. Do you have proof that they exist? Do you not have proof that they do not exist? If they do not exist, do you not have proof? Or, if they do exist, please produce one of them about 77 times, and I still won't believe you!!!
That's because you are a yellow belly tool!
As usual, makes no sense!!
