    Jazz, Spurs, Mavs, Lakers, Suns, etc.

    This team doesn't inspire as much hate. Not saying I like them, just noticing that.

    Like watching this press conference, I have to give props to the way Lilliard handles himself.

    I'm hating their bullcrap prayers that are going in. I'm hating the ridiculous free throw disparity. I don't hate their individual players....yet.

    They may not be "hateable", but it's getting really irritating seeing ALL five POR players out there, plus coach Stotts, complain about every single call.

    From the opening minutes to the end of OT, they always have this "ARE YOU KIDDING ME?" expression after the refs give them a foul.

    if anyone deserves hate in this series, it's the refs

    yeah, that's because we never lost to them in the playoffs.

    and it is expected that we will also win this series.

    Completely agree whether we win or lose. They're not as hateable as any of the other Western teams.

    I'll root for them or Memphis if we lose the series.

    Only dude I don't like on their team is Wes Matthews. Everybody else is fine.

    Which is totally laughable considering Aldridge gets the most absurd calls I've ever seen

    I hate the calls they are getting on all these little bumps, meanwhile we do not get the same treatment. Might be karma for all the calls Harden got during the regular season, but LMA is on the same treatment. Can't breathe on him anymore apparently

    except for mo williams and batum.

    Batum is a little baby ass french flopper. I dont care we drafted him I can't stand the french piece of crap. screw him.

    also how many times does stotts have to complain about every call? Its every single time. He sucks. how many times has his nose been broken you think? I'm thinking at least 18 times. Is he a former boxer too? dude must have some major snoring issues.

    but yeah not as much as I HATE the mavericks and jazz, lakers, and whatever team derek flopper is playing for.

    Its irritating watching Stotts on the sideline whine on call after call.

    I'd find it hard to hate them, Aldridge in the first two games just turned all the game sliders to 90, his overall rating was 99.

    Can't hate when you're admiring.

    There's no player on that team that makes me want to hate him.... There's nobody on that team who plays dirty.... (In contrast to David Lee or Metta World Piece.....) I won't ever hate players because they simply beat us with brilliant play.

    I'm still appalled Stotts hasn't gotten a technical yet. It seems like all he does is go up to the refs and starts yelling at them. And Portland whines after every damn call. They have the "what did i do?" look perfected.
