Nets fans should jump in the Hudson

Those are clearly the seats of a baseball stadium. Our guess is Citizens Bank Park. Thoughts?

Point is, that may have well been the look at New Jersey's corporate airline company arena.

In last night's Cavaliers' 87-85 win over the Nets, the arena was silent. Not in a good, tension-filled way. We're all about that kind of silence.

But this was pathetic. In a tense game, the Cavs were leading by like one or something with the ball and, oh, say 40 seconds.

The crowd is on its feet, roaring, making the other team "not hear themselves think."

Quick aside: Normally we don't hate on clichés. We sort of embrace them. But hearing a commentator say, "It's so loud you can't hear yourself think" is bogus. Really, do you ever hear yourself think?

Anyway, so the crowd is on its feet, loud as hell, trying to help their team get the must-needed stop on a crucial possession. No wait, that was in a regular-season college game somewhere two months ago. Or maybe at the Golden State game.

Rather than chaos in the building, "Dun-dun-dun. Dun-dun-dun." The motherfucking organ!!!!! AGGHHHH!!!

That was one glaring example of what makes NBA fans so pathetic. We're glad the Warriors fans are getting a good rep by being loud and wild, but at the same time, they're giving credibility to NBA fans as a whole. And as evident by the fans in New Jersey, loud NBA fans is still an oxymoron.

Doesn't look like CBP. The shape of the seats is a little off.

The Cavs are sick. The Nets fans didn't want to waste their energy screaming at a team they know are losers. And plus, they still had to clean toilets and repair refrigerators after the game.

New Jersey is just not a basketball town. Why do you think they're moving New Jersey to Brooklyn?

Give the Cavs some credit!

whatever happened to curved walls? baseball stadiums used to have curved outfield walls. now they're all boxy and straight with weird angles. must be because they want to seats right up against the fences and its easier to angle the seats against a straight wall. I guess I just answered my own question.

worst fans in the NBA...I wouldn't be surprised if the game wasn't even sold out
