Well, one way which has been pure luck for me was that I had to miss the Magic and Celtics games so I think they are 6-4 at the games I've actually been to. Watching them play to the (bad) opponents skill level is greatly unsettling when it looks like the guys just are not giving their best effort. Like others have said here, it's much easier to handle the losing when it looks like they are trying their best but are just outmatched. I think the most annoying thing is when some of them just give up during a game, not because they are down by a lot, just because things aren't exactly going their way; one example of that was watching Jack during the Raptors game. I distinctly remember him turning the ball over at one point then just standing in the exact spot on the floor watching the guy take it to the other side for an uncontested layup. That isn't at all an attack on Jack because he isn't the only one but I remember thinking during that play "really, you are starting from the same place on the court and you aren't even going to try and run him down? at least get in his way a little?" Another fun little fact here is that from where I live its a 90 min drive ONE WAY so a game is ~4pm - ~11pm ordeal so personally I just wish that we had people who would at least give it their all.
Thanks for this thread, I think I needed it
