    I don't think anyone will be booing him for his basketball performance. I am not sure I would boo him, but I certainly would not cheer him for the way he and his representation conducted themselves in this trade saga.

    I have said it before - it takes a long time to build your reputation and a short time to lose it - and Dame and his people have been working hard and losing their reputation this summer, unfortunately.

    I would not boo if he was traded,
    I would not boo as if I'm jaded.
    He has brought me ton's of joy,
    Even though his ploy can annoy.

    I may not ever feel the same
    But Dame can really play the game.
    He just wants a team to cash in,
    So he can be their assassin.

    I sometimes get a "Gesture",
    When I take the mode of lecture.
    Cuz there's months of vague conjecture,
    We're devoid of a clearer picture.

    In the end, we all are fans,
    It's what the sport demands.
    I don't care if the "trade" is a myth
    Let's get this fucking overwith.........

    Easy no

    And if you wanted Dame traded before this summer at any point in his career, I revoke your rights to boo him.

    Why? Someone wanting him traded because he sucks at defense and him fucking the franchise with his bullshit 1 team demand are two entirely different things

    I disagree with the general conclusion that he's screwing over the franchise. I think that's far over-simplistic, and frankly, Dame is not on my top 3 culprits for why this franchise is in a tough spot.

    If you wanted him gone, and now he's granting your wish, be thankful.

    Now that you mention it, you're not allowed to do that either... though not having you as the board heel and being on the right side of hoops debates will take some getting used to!

    I will, for sure, take an anthropological approach and just observe, regardless of what the crowd does.

    If I were to wager, however, I'd bet he'll receive a standing ovation.

    Might be the safest bet there is. The few psychopaths who start to boo him will quickly realize they're in the minority and put their tail between their legs.

    If it isn't in a game that is meaningful against our team, then I will always cheer for Dame. I don't love the way he's handled the last few months but before that he was basically flawless... his actions that I don't approve of were not unprovoked. So Dame is still my favorite player in the NBA and he will be (just like Clyde was) until someone else does something as a Blazer to supplant him.

    I don't mean this as a personal attack on anyone but honestly after the team did exactly what the best player in the history of our franchise asked them not to do, I don't give a fuck (in the long run) how Dame made his exit. The idea that some of you, any of you would actually boo him after everything he has given to this team is fucking bullshit.

    The issue is we have no idea what went down.

    If teams are asking #3 (Scoot) and Sharpe for someone like Mikal, I can see why Joe would turn that down. And if Dame is not happy Joe chose to do that, then I think Dame is being unreasonable.

    I think if we never got #3, Joe would have traded that pick plus future picks whatever it takes to get Dame win now help. It might not be enough to put us in contention but Dame wouldn't have asked for a trade. In a way, getting lucky to get #3 made it harder for Joe to just trade it for a marginal improvement

    For Dame it wouldn't matter how it went down just that it did go down the same way it did during Joe's first trade deadline which Joe never said he would do differently, then Joe's first draft which Joe told us and I'm sure Dame that he would push all of our chips in for a win now team and then again at Joe's second trade deadline and then again at this draft and free agent process. Every time Joe looked like he was doing a youth rebuild (with the exception of the Jerami trade which wouldn't be enough if I were Dame). So what Joe has done can be completely logical and what Dame has done can be completely understandable at the same time.

    For what Dame wants the reasons things didn't go according to plan don't matter and Joe himself has acknowledged that. Again, any booing of Dame if he returns at some point as a member of another team or of ours is fucking bullshit.
