I can, they play a joyless style, they never adjust they're like an NFL team that just runs it up the middle every play and hopes the other team can't stop them.
They're horribly coached, and what you described is the complaint that my Bucks fan friends have. I guess I differ in that I consider that boring, bad basketball, but not hateable.

The Celtics have played 12 playoff games against the Giannis/Middleton led Bucks in the last 3 years. Shit happened in those series which led me to hating them. It's usually that simple for me. I hold sports grudges.

Also, I don't really think Giannis is a very likeable superstar. He's really bad at a bunch of things, and I don't like how he lowers his shoulder and charges to the hoop, often committing uncalled offensive fouls.

They aren't Nets- or Lakers-level hateable though.

Nets played 3 guys 23+ minutes in the first half and hardly used the bench at all, you'd think that has to burn them in the second half

Yes sexist and all, but I automatically think of Harden carrying a purse when "faking" that foul on the shot, similar to the famous photoshop of ARod slapping the ball out of Arroyo's glove in 2004.

If this stays close, the clutch players and whistles are both advantage Nets. Bucks need a substantial run to win it methinks.

It almost never happens (even in the old days), he's gonna do it twice in 3 games, he's going to be the best player on the court... he's 32 and just came back from an injury that used to end careers.
This. Dude is a freak.
