Haha, I like it. Espn and american media disrespects the Raptors constantly anyway so why not? Fun to see a little trash talk coming from the Canadian side. I picked the Nets to win in 7 but I'm hoping Toronto can pull it off. Most experts and Brooklyn fans definitely don't seem to take them as serious as they should.

First of all the nets were the ones to publicly announce that they were going to intentionally loose the last game because they wanted to play the raptors. Thats not very classy if you ask me, to publicly announce something like that. And second of all, that was a pretty light joke if you ask me. Its not like they crossed the line or anything or brought anything personal. And if you know anything about basketball, Garnett is one of the biggest trash talkers in the nba. He attacks players on the court verbally and crosses the line. If you remember he was taking shots at melo's wife and i'm sure almost any protective men would take offense to that. So before you call an entire country classless reconsider the facts.

Media hyping everything. The same way Blatche said Ross wanted this. They took Ross' comment out of context. The media is hyping this series. I think this series lives up to it. Regardless of who win it should be one of the better first round match ups.

It's funny but that news paper is Canadian equivalent to Fox news they spend most of their time talking about Sasquatches and things like that.

2. This is a tabloid newspaper
3. This is a tabloid newspaper
4. This is a ****ing tabloid......................

stop getting upset about it when Toronto, who has had a much more respectable season, gets no respect whatsoever from anyone, and Brooklyn gets praised for beating Miami 4 times and making the 6 seed when they are the single most expensive team in NBA history.......

I don't have an issue with this. It's a newspaper, not the franchise, that did it.

I want to root for the Raptors in this series but I don't think any team, outside of the Nets, have a real chance to knock off Miami. I'll put the 'underdog' story aside for this series.

Of course, you are entitled to that.

However, what Masai said and what that 'newspaper' published did nothing to help the Raptors cause,

Both Absolutely provided incentive for the Nets, and their two HOFers.

You seriously believe that PP and KG need motivation? If they need a newspaper headline or something a GM says in the heat of the moment to get them going, then they should retire.

As you've mentioned, they are HOF players, they are not going to worry about these off court distractions nor do they need it to give them motivation.

Are you just going to make stuff up as you go along? The Nets never announced anything like that it was implied by the media because they rested their starters down the stretch, since they are "dinosaurs" you know.

Terrance Ross actually called out the Nets first

There's nothing bad about the tabloid picture, they are trying to sell papers (a dying industry). The stupider things were the GM acting dumb and the TOR fans acting like they were superior before the series started.

The only thing that did was give added motivation to two HOF players in KG and PP. Something neither needed but were glad they did. In game 1 PP just took that newspaper and all the trash talk and stuffed in back in their mouths. Please keep the corny trash talk coming Canada.

Nobody in the Nets organization said that. All that was said was that as we weren't getting home court anyway, we would just rest ours starters and face either the Bulls or the Raptors.

Ha, I get it man, trust me. I just came across it and put it here. I think it's great for the fans of Toronto and Raptors fans. And even the series vs Brooklyn. NY Papers have done stuff like this at times, so I wouldn't be surprised if they do something similar. I think it's all in good fun personally

Jason Kidd has been completely uncompromising with resting his players this year. He's lost us a handful of games during the season staying with backups.

I don't understand how people think we tanked the game to face the Raptors when it was undecided at the time we played who would have the 3 seed. If the Raps lost that night and the Bulls won we'd be facing them.

Kidd stuck to his plan to be ready for playoffs - match-ups be damned.

Agreed. They could not foresee the Bobcats winning and Charlotte losing. They just rested the players, and things just happen to pan out the way it did.
