First and foremost I am not a SAS fan. (die hard blazer fan since birth) I was hoping you all would kick some laker butt today. Sadly it didn’t happen even worse was the crowd inside of the arena…
Let me give you some back ground. Up here at the rose garden we have a pretty ravage and robust fan base that is more than exocentric, however last home game versus the Lakers it seemed we somehow were outnumbered and more over shammed when chants of mvp from the upper sections roar’d when Kobe touched the ball. Constant cheers from laker fans as well every time they scored.
It was hard to hear during the game today (SAS VS LAL) however they were there, I personally was very upset the fact so many opposing team fans were at our home court cheering the other team on. I can imagine you all were as well…? It might be the love for my home team, but I wanted to reach out and ask your opinions. How did you feel about the “lets go lakers” chant in your home arena? I think it’s truly a mockery as I know our arena never has more than the 15-20% loyal laker fans over the past years (season tix holder since 97-98) since there recent titles more and more bandwagons come out of the dark. Down there do you normally have a large enough laker fan base that cheers can be heard on national television when you play them at home?
Sorry if this has crossed any line/offended anyone it just makes me sick to my stomach seeing the home team getting cheered against and booed.
On a side note it is completely awesome to see how well the SAS are playing this year a lot of people ruled them out as contenders due to a lot of factors including age. If my blazers are not in this year (good chance) I will be rooting along with all of you for the spurs to upset the likes of the laker, Celtics, and heat.
