It’s never a great idea to make fun of your own fans, but that’s especially true when the Nets have dropped three in a row and could use all the help they can get.

The Nets eventually worked things out with the Scrabble enthusiast, telling him “All in good fun…we still love you. Good luck tonight!” — after he played around with the idea of changing his fan loyalty to the New York Knicks, that is.
