    Default Comments From Observers Who Aren't Fans

    I was at the game last night. Despite the loss, it was very fun. Nice to have a packed house at the ACC. Some dude right behind me had a Rupaul sign that was classic.

    Sitting beside me were 2 drunk banker chicks that clearly didn't know much about hoops, BUT, clearly loved the Raptors and being there.

    It's amazing what you can learn when overhearing basketball 'outsiders' make honest comments about the game. Here is the highlight reel:

    "That Bosh is skinny now!"

    "Our guy, what's his name, Bargainey, he is making points everywhere!"

    "Why does that Jose not pass the ball"

    "That guy, #8, he can't score at all, why doesn't he pass the ball"

    "This is pathetic, every time we get the ball we make some dumb mistake"

    "Why do those refs call every foul on us but the Heat is hitting us like crazy"

    "Uggghhh....we suck...we were doing so good then we stop giving the ball to our guys that are scoring it"

    On Lebron "he is amazing"

    On Wade "he is amazing"

    "What is the crowd saying? Rupaul? What's that?"

    To me, that sums it up. Bargnani kills it. Bosh was good but IS skinny now. Lebron and Wade are amazing. Jose dropped an egg and put on his best TJ Ford impersonation. The refs were reminding the fans they get paid to pander to the celeb players.

    PS- Big props to the ACC media crew who played Rupauls "cover girl" song during one of the timeouts, that was classic, although i think only 1/3 of the crowd "got it"

    Towards the end of the game I swore I saw a Delonte West bighead picture? That is pure classic heckle material right there.
    Bosh's post game conference antics just made him look like more of a clown, after taunting the crowd with blowing kisses, he tries to play it off by saying, they're genuine to the true fans, but sarcastic to the others....
    and that CB1 jacket he decided to wear is classic 'EGOManiac' swag.

    It's more appropriate. This stuff hits the Raptors Republic homepage "Latest Forum Topics" feed. Your thread is intact.

    In defense of Bosh, if I had been booed the entire time during a game, I might have done the same thing if my team won. It's funny the lack of class that many showed, but then jump Bosh for basically doing the same thing.

    great post. The raptors fan base is huge and pretty serious but it amazes me how little some people in toronto know about basketball. I actually had to explain to a friend recently that the only time you could get a one point shot was at the foul line. ***

    PS Multipaul, your avatar is the best thing i've seen on these forums, do you have a larger version of that some where?

    i actually had to explain a backcourt violation to a friend of mine who only really followed hockey... couldn't believe he didn't get the concept of "cant go back across the half court line" but had no issues with two line passes, offsides, and icing..
