This may be the first time I have ever agreed with Hawker.

Which brings me to this question??? Who is hated more this year? Dallas fans or Phornix fans?? I hope its Dallas fans because I dont see much whining from Suns fans.

The suns fans now considering the whole entire board is filled with laker fans and dantoni just b!tched at phil jackson the other night. Ya, that sounds about right. Unfortunate yet true.

You were asking for it. This is a pity party thread. It's funny how the two most underachieving teams Pho/Dal "feel each other". I was and still am ready to support my team regardless. If the season really doesn't start for you until the "playoffs" why should you feel down at all? You know you're in the playoffs, you just realize the inevitable. What your team has been doing the last three years has been redundant. The wheels are falling off and people are jumping.

IDK Mavs fans like primetime/romosexudal/doomsday are making you guys look pretty bad. You are actually one of the best mavs fans. OMG did I just say that.

Probably b/c I just dont post anymore therefore you dont get to see as much stupid stuff.

Datznasty is pretty bad too. All he does is talk trash about the team. I would consider him worse then the above three.

Wrong. It's not a pity party thread. He's saying he just is having a hard time being as excited about this season as much as he was in the past, for MANY reasons. It's narrow minded idiots who took ONE of his reasons and called it his ONLY reason.

I'm in the same place Rab is, but after a few years. I work two jobs now (and probably will throughout the winter and into the spring), and I work nights during the weeks now so I don't get to watch games like I used to. I can't really justify paying for a League Pass when I'd just get to watch as many games with it as I do without it. I've gotten to watch two games now, and I probably will be able to continue watching Sopcast games on Friday nights (which are dead here at job #2), which is where I got to watch the first of those two games I've seen so far. Without being able to watch the games like I used to, only being able to follow highlights and boxscores, and having the same feeling that the NBA is a shadow of what it used to be, I'm just not as into it this year as I used to be around this time. Am I crying about my hometown Bulls getting knocked out by Detroit? Nope. Am I crying at the lack of success last year from my favorite players in the league? Nope. Will some useless, f*cking retarded idiot assume that from a post like this? Yep.

I feel sorry for you Rab, not because of your lack of enthusiasm for the season so far, but because you had the honesty to say how you feel about something, and decided to contribute it to the board to generate some conversation on the topic and only ended up with the morons of the board responding. Though, I'm sure you knew sh*t like this would be the inevitable result, but I'm still sorry you have to deal with these f*cking wastes of space.

But I certainly don't envy you

No, you are trying to turn it into a pity party thread, which isn't the case at all. It just gave you, a Laker fan, a dumb reason to blast a team and a fanbase you don't like. It just isn't normal for me to not be as excited for the season to start. Doesn't mean I don't want it to come around anymore. You, in turn, decided to make it into something it's really not. If that's how you feel, that's cool. I don't care. You assume that I am not supporting my team as well, when I have watched every minute of action, including preseason, that I have been able to watch.

Don't let these idiots get to you. I've been having a hard time getting excited about the NBA myself.. it seems to get worse every year. I barely even realized opening night was last week! Was reading the paper and finally realized that the season was starting..

There was a point in time when I would eat, sleep, breathe anything NBA.. I would've kept up with every offseason move, even if you were the 15th man on the worst team in the league, I'd be the first to know about it. I'd be able to recite the entire draft for you... nowadays... I dont know.. just the other day, I thought Jason Richardson still played for the Warriors..

I used to come on this board EVERYDAY.. things have changed.. I cant really pinpoint when I started to lose interest in the NBA... Basketball is still my #1 sport to play, but I find myself more interested in watching NFL or college football games now...

It is nice to know that there still is some shred of intelligence left on this board.

to homer fans pretending what happens in the season doesnt mean anything, does that mean your never going to post throughout this season regarding anything that occurs within it? It doesnt matter, right? Might as well not talk basketball then till they playoffs...

anyways Lakers are fun to watch this year even if your not a Laker fan w/ all the drama around them, plus their play has been like old Sacramento the last 2 games.

i like watching Yi too...crowd loves him. hes got surprising game and your not sure at this point what hes turning into, but hes turning into something pretty good.

theres alot more improved teams this year so the fat cats used to winning will have to work harder for it this year. Even the teams that are supposed to be bad(Minnesota) have given good teams a run for their money.

By your responses in this thread, it would appear as if you were born in the not so distant past.

Make this topic when the Suns win 10 straight games. $10 says you won't.
