Don’t make the mistake of thinking only death threats hurt. You don’t have to threaten him with death to be bullying him. Name-calling, piss-taking, on a mass level – all that shit contributes. And sure, you might think “well he’s a basketballer, he’s agreed to be criticized by people all over” – sure, but there’s a difference between criticism and straight-up bullying.
It’s embarrassing to be apart of a fan base that does this shit. In the lakers subreddit, some of these guys got the audacity to say that we as fans are experiencing more mental health stress than Danny Green due to the losses. I couldn’t even believe it.
