Good question.

He didn't go Vince Carter and say he never played up to his potential, but his potential wasn't enough. The Pistons passed up on Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. I think you'd boo him too if you were a Pistons fan.

Well yea....that's a little more understandable. He was a major piece of the puzzle who bailed on them.

But Darko barely played......not because he didn't want to....but because the Piston coaching staff wouldn't allow it.

Why would anyone boo a guy like that? I still don't get it.

Well, there are a lot of things people just dont get and never will. Honestly, I am completely with you but that is the only reason i can come up with.

Well, it's obviously a silly thing to do but here is your answer.

Fans had huge expectations that Darko (be it his fault or not) failed to fulfill. Then he got traded, while fans realized what others that had been drafted before him are able to do. So the fans decided to blame their own expectations and their team's management's faults on the guy who is capable of taking all the blame in the world, because he still doesn't really deliver. Basically fans are mad at themselves for having bought into the hype and now they blame it on someone else.

It's called cognitive dissonance reduction.

It's not his fault he was picked first, blame the GM who made the pick. Plus, he was never really allowed to develop. Brown was notorious for not playing younger guys, and I think his adjustment and growth was stunted for not being able to play.
