Quote from well known personality who led their high school team to a state championship.“As a captain, I played furiously. I drew a lot of fouls, but I brought everything I had to every practice and to every game. I left everything on the court because I simply wanted the team to win”
Already been posted, where have you been???

And which part am I hating? The discounted ticket or the free shirt?
I am confused with the look of the onez....why the sadness or the scowl? They are happy guys from what I have seen. Is mlse behind the site? Are they selling something thats dressed up?
It looks like they themselves(Sonny, Amir and DeMar) could be behind it. I'm not sure what's to gain by separating themselves from the team and suggesting that they're more "special" or "important" than anyone else though.
I just threw-up in my mouth - this whole thing is f%#&ing ridiculous
I don't understand what they have to gain by marketing themselves in this fashion. It's one thing to have a nickname for a group of a few guys who happen to be good friends, but this places way too much emphasis on three players who are not even if the upper echelon of talent on their ball squad. I'll take the "International Flavor" strategy over this NWA drivel any day..."We are the heart and soul of T.O." ? What the hell? Have I been watching the wrong team? I love the unity there, and have high hopes for these guys, but this is getting out of hand in terms of a marketing angle.
Oh Jesus, I just checked out the "Chants" section of the website and I regret having done so. "Awkward" is an understatement. I feel downright uncomfortable.
Honestly, what have those 3 done so far, nothing new of last season minus Amir pathetic 2 game performance so far.
Bargnani is asked how he gets beat on the boards.
"Being lazy maybe," he says. "That's the only reason it can be. I've got the body, I've got everything to take 10 rebounds a game. It's just sometimes I get lazy."
Why not Public Enemy or Boogie Down Productions or Brand Nubian or Gang Starr or De La Soul or A Tribe Called Quest?
Why compare these basketball players to one of the most the most negative vile rap- not hip hop, groups to ever put words on records?*** Is that how you view them outside of basketball?
Folks who have a problem with this nick name subject- get a clue......Sherlocks...it's all fun & games...***
Anywayz the name Young Onez is pure wackness. The Young Ridahz or The Young Guyz (still could use the YG'z) sounds alot better to me but whatever the case they are the Young Gunz to me and most folks out there who follow the Rap's.

Or they could actually do something to deserve a nickname, you know, to earn their "badge of honor".
Making it to the NBA is doing something alot of us will never ever accomplish ie hoop dreams....***
Sitting on the sidelines with no guidelines....***
haha. Young Guyz sound really stupid. And NWA is still cool.
Arse already covered this but i'll reiterate cause i agree. It's nice to have 3 young players amongst all the TO hating that want to stay here and call it their home. But it would also be nice if they were, yknow, good...
Eh follow my TWITTER!
Man, i was at the game on Friday. There was like 10 kids sitting in the "youngonez" section. totally looked like MLSE planted them there too. they were chanting "demmarrr demar demar demar", one of the tunes it promotes on the site. PATHETIC. They even looked embarassed to do it.
Bogut has his own section for about 40 crazy fans in Milwaukee, what's wrong with them starting the same sort of thing here? At least they're trying to do something for the fans, unlike most of our past/present players.

NWA cool? Only to a negative stereotype loving fool...***
Eazy E's self confessed formula for song making (he didn't write Ice Cube, DOC, MC Ren & others wrote his rhymes for him) was to say the n word & b*tch as many times possible in said song not to mention all the satanic symbolism around him and in his music- when you speak about death you're talking to spirits. Eazy E is the one who made it popular to say the n word on records & that's cool...*** Life is not a video........*** Folks embrace the ignorance (NWA) over the intelligence (Public Enemy).....***
As well it's good to see 3 young players embrace TO & the fans....
