I'm sorry that he felt bullied that I called his take the worst in history, and joked about it on a message board, but when you make a scorching hot Skip Bayless esque take like that and you're NOT trolling, what are you really expecting? I joked about his state of mind at the time, I didn't make any personal attacks, nor did I break any board rules or I would have been warned.
You're right though, it IS a basketball messageboard, and just like when you talk with your friends at the gym, or talk ball in a group setting, if you have an opinion like Derozan>GA, then you should know that you're going to receive a strong push back from people who disagree with you, which will be anyone who isn't a Raptors homer who watched our series with the Bucks last year where Giannis almost single handedly beat us, or this year where he's taken his game to an even higher level than last year. We visit message boards to discuss and argue basketball topics. If you think my response was harsh, you should have seen the old raptors forums where people actually insulted others for their opinions. I was just going after his take, not him, so again, sorry if you felt bullied dude, but if you're going to post that kind of material, you better expect some backlash and counter arguments.
Raptors fans can't call other teams fans homers when you have posters who think that Demar is a better player than Giannis.
And Tommy, instead of going after my posting style, how about you try to back up your buddies claim and actually tell me how Demar is a better player than Giannis instead of playing backseat moderator?
And I am a cynical Raptors fan, so what? I think it's justified based on our history.
