    You can cheer for your team, while also understanding the future long-term benefits that a loss would result in. I would never want the players on any team I support to tank, at least so far as giving less than full effort. The players don't control who's on the roster and/or who's on the court, just their own actions within the game... I will always cheer for my team's players and expect full effort.

    It is ironic though, that a loss gives the team a better % chance of a more significant improvement next season and beyond... wouldn't cheering for that BE cheering for the Raptors team, given that a championship and even the playoffs are out of reach this season??
    I'm an admin of a basketball discussion board. I posted the lotto odds next to current standings in a table on this board yesterday. I understand the possible implications of a win or a loss and yet I stand by what I said.

    As for the rest, the ends never justify the means. That said I won't be broken up about a loss but to cheer on the Nets? Come on, anyone who does that doesn't deserve to ever have a good team to cheer for in Toronto.

    You are not the first to express these feelings on this board, but you might have expressed them best.

    And so they slapped around the foolish Nets who are possibly about to lose D-Will and who certainly pissed away their draft pick to the Blazers. If you're sad today about the Raptors losing 20 or so lottery balls out of a thousand just look at the Nets... Your lives as fans look to be a lot better than theirs' come next season regardless of those 20 balls. This was a legit win, the Nets had no reason to lose. In fact they should have been trying to win to stick it to the Blazers. What a mess.
