Bibby Says We’re Bandwagon Fans

After getting embarassed by Rajon Rondo Sunday night, Mike Bibby decided to take his frustration out on the Celtics fans.

They were kind of loud at the beginning," he said. "But a lot of these fans are bandwagon jumpers trying to get on this now. I played here last year, too. And I didn't see three fourths of them. They're for the team now and they might get a little rowdy but that's about it."

When asked if he thought they were fair-weather fans, joining the party only after the Celtics' offseason trades that brought Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen to town, Bibby didn't hesitate to pour more gasoline on the fire.

"You could say that," he said. "I remember them having bags on their heads [last year]. It's a different look. I guess that's what happens when you win."

If I played like Bibby did Sunday night, I'd be wearing a bag on my head. I'm guessing the Hawks would take bandwagon fans over no fans at all. Game 3 hasn't sold out yet. Can you believe that? Actually I can, because Atlanta is the worst sports city in America. Leave it to Perk to fire back at Bibby.

"Coming off a 2-for-10 shooting performance, you expect a guy to say something like that," Kendrick Perkins said. "We have the best fans in the world, but we don't expect other players to like our fans."

Although the Hawks have yet to sell out Philips Arena for Game 3 Saturday, Perkins is under the impression that the crowd will be bigger than usual in Atlanta.

"It's about time," he said. "It takes us going down there to pack their building out."

    Michael….last time your were here, your team was in the middle of an 8 game losing streak, we were in the middle of an 18 game losing streak, and we still drew to > 85% capacity. “And I didn’t see three fourths of them.”…. idiot, should have stayed in school.

    Perk…. Thank you!

  • Haha, well put!!! The Lakers fans can’t really say they enjoy Bibby’s presence either, it was great breaking his heart when he played in Sacramento. I suppose a fe bad losses will do this to you though. Boston sweep in round 1, and then Cleveland goes down in 5. Let’s see what Boston’s got…
