As paying customers and avid watchers we do have the right to boo whomever, especially if they aren't living up to expectations. I'm not about defending a person blindly. Either you are performing or you aren't.
There is a thick line between criticism and "hating". We all offer criticism. Doesn't mean we are hating. Who in here was happy with the way Melo and Stat were playing or the team as a while. I hate that stupid term hating because it is so misconstrued. It's like you can't say anything negative about anyone because you become a hater. Fukk the rappers that coined the term.
My man Kweli said it best:
So when they do good then you're gonna start cheering them? Like do you hear yourself? Criticism is fine, but why the hell is anybody gonna play here if the home crowd sh*ts on you when you're not playing well but cheers you & is your friends when you do well?
That's sheisty sh*t, I don't respect that f*ggotry.
You got people booing Melo because of Pringles firing & was waiting to boo him. What kind of sh*t is this? Nah, I'm not with that & Im pretty sure a lot of people agree with me on that.
