    Have yall been seeing these comments all over the web? other forums, youtube, etc etc?

    "Beverley is a dirty player."

    "That was a dirty play by Beverley."

    Like really? I'm about as objective as can be when it comes to basketball. Hell even when Perkins (maybe it was Ibaka, can't remember) was holding Parsons' arm so he couldn't contest a 3, I didn't think that was dirty. That's the game, and if refs can't calls things like that then it's on them, but this is just stupid.

    If there are any OKC fans here reading this board, I have this to say to you....

    We all know your city is (relatively) new the whole sport of basketball, and the good lord has blessed yall with an absolute beast of a team (albeit the spoils of a failed franchise), but this is how things go. People get injured, even the so called "Iron men." Why oh why, we don't know. But deal with it, & stop making your fan base look like complete idiots all throughout the inter-webs.

    That is all.

    Meh, if say Reggie Jackson did the same to James Harden, we would all be calling for his head right now and saying Jackson should be suspended from the league or whatever. Not surprised at all.

    I don't think so. Especially this fan base.

    When did you ever hear anyone blame Kobe for Yao getting injured the last time we were in the playoffs?

    What it comes down to is that they have an inexperienced fan base whom thinks that their players are demi-gods.

    Most definitely. I think they should be angry. They are competing for a title and their 2nd best player gets hurt after the whistle.

    Fans should be homers IMO.

    Have no problem with them being mad. I would be mad if the same thing happened to Lin or Harden.

    what? It's awesome. Shows that the fans don't give care about anything but supporting the team and uniting. It's about supporting your team instead of just caring about whether you look super cool

    If we lost harden because some other player looked at him wrong, I would have eternal hate for that player. End of story, let it go.

    Yao's injury wasn't caused by Kobe diving into his leg to go for a steal. If it had been, you know fans would be furious.

    Although he did knock knees with him in Game 1, leading to that epic Willis Reed like comeback by Yao.

    I bet AB blames Manu for essentially derailing his career.

    On the contrary, Lowry probably sends the Ginobli Family a Christmas card each year.

    True. I remeber people were pretty pissed at Tim Thomas when he fell into Yao's knee even though it wasn't at all intentional.

    So yeah, stupid thread.
