I didn't take it as a slam on the fans and I'm usually pretty sensitive about that. I don't think it's anywhere near as bad as what Ladd said "there were nights when the building was empty and we wished we weren't there."
Byfuglien didn't rip Atlanta, but did say he was glad to play in front of "real" fans And that playing in a packed house would make the players play better. Note to Byfuglien your getting paid millions of dollars to play hard every night and the house may have been packed more often if you gave more effort when it wasn't. Fans didn't want to pay hard earned money to see you give half an effort!!!
