    It was super rude but that is in the moment. Raptors fans are the best in the NBA. KD, we are sorry that you were hurt. I have adored you as a massive basketball fan, get well. Sorry that you played before a full recovery. Get well and get out there. Molly, stop already.

    Saying every team's fans would do the same does not exonerate Raptors fans. It just kind of makes all fans look at assholes. In the famous words of some hockey player "it's only game, why you have to be mad?" And hes right. People take sports way to seriously. In the grand scheme of the world sports dont matter. You know what does matter? The wellbeing of humans. So please dont be a douche and cheer injuries.

    In Canada, you clap for injured athletes when they get up, especially if they can take their feet.
    It's trashy not to salute the critically injured.

    "You're a trash fan if you cheer an injury"

    No. Fuck you, we all know whoever rooted for toronto cheered when kd and klay had to step out. Do I want him to be permanently injured and not get to play ball the same way again? Of course not. Was I happy he was out of the game? yes. Stop the political correct bullshit.

    You can't assume that you know what all the fans were thinking and seeing in that moment. Nobody can read minds SAS/MOLLY. So you dont know, it's an assumption.
    Assumptions aren't facts. Look at the video evidence.
    Sure there can be a few jerks in the crowd. But the fans cheered for the turn over, then realized he was injured. Then they showed respect and chanted KD! KD! over and over. just seems like your looking for the negatives because your predictions were wrong. Smh.

    That was awful and disrespectful of those fans that did that. They knew their chances to win were slim a d none with KD out! Take 1 of their best players out see where they stand. Warriors best team. They had 2 good players out and almost won!.

    Any fan would react the same way when your own team gains advantage over the rivals due to loosing key player from another team, as a true fan we respect any player especially the legend KD,

  • Maximus

    It’s natural reaction when opposition loses the best gay, nobody wants KD to suffer, everybody wants him out of play, I can’t believe saying that but for once Max was right, Canadians are classy,

    Often agree with Max but this is unfortunate. Human instinct should at times be resisted. Ability to access the greater good is what separates human from the rest of the animal kingdom.
    While he's factually correct this is why players have to look out for themselves. Expendable assets have a shelf life and health is a direct link to the expiration of that commodity.
    I understand how primal competion can get but in most societies people can at worst jailed, at best judged harshly. Feels good does not always equal good.

  • Adrian Maynard

    Max is right. Lets not be hyppcritical. lets take this scenario to a high school setting where someone was runming and all of a sudden they slippes and fell down in the mud and got dirty. everyone or most persons reaction will be to laugh, especially if the way they fell looked funny. if after 5 seconds they see that the person isnt moving, and is bleeding from the mouth it is only at that moment that those laughters will come to a screeching halt be ause now they realize its a serious situation here and is no longer a laughimg matter. They are now hit with the reality that this person can die, or be seriously injured and probably be paralyzed and then begin to show some legitimate concern and compassion. Its the same thing with the raptor fans and KD. not that theu were lauhjing ,but when this man went down it was a sigh of relief because the way he started out it looked like he was gonna beat toronto so the initial reaction was like " yeah man ,the villian of the moment isnt lookimg like he can continue or at least be away from the game for long enough that we can make a comeback and take the lead. Naturally they will be happy. it is only when they realize that it looked aerious emough now that this man career can be in jeopardy that the care and compassion as a human being will take precedence and then feep sorry. so at the same time ypu are glad he can no longer participate in the current game which u see u can now probably win this game amd the championship but at the same time you dont want this persons career to be over. Thats the truth. If now after realizing that this mans career is in jeopardy amd u are still cheering, it is then when Mollys arguement becomes valid and the individuals will ve seen as evil and heartless
