One seeds should never adopt the underdog mentality. Especially when they are about to play a 4 seed.The fans of the Milwaukee Bucks have officially put a target on their back. While it is pathetic for a 1 seed to ever chant they want another team, it is understandable given that the city of Milwaukee is not used to being on the winning side of anything.
If Bucks fans were going to chant anything, it should have been “we want Detroit” last round. Chanting “we want Boston” has not worked out too well for the chanting team in past. For example, recall what happened just last year.
That’s right. The ever so rational fans of the New York Yankees chanted that they wanted Boston right before last year’s ALDS. Then, Boston promptly laid down the gentleman’s sweep out of respect for their rival.
The Red Sox won the series with ease 4 games to 1. This included a 16-1 curb stomp in Game 3. Should have been smarter Milwaukee, because we all know history repeats itself. Celtics in 7.
