No one here cares what people in Omaha, Nebraska think of the Toronto Raptors as we are fully capable of supporting the team nationally. You sound like a typical ignorant American.
Who cares about Canada? they have less population in their entire barren country than the state of California. I understand why a Raptors fan would be excited, but for a Steve Nash fan such as myself it's a sad thing to hear might happen. If Nash announced he was going to sign with Golden State I would be happy, but I would understand why others would be letdown and it wouldn't get me all bent out of shape to know people were disappointed in the signing. Stop being so depressed that most people in the US don't care about Toronto sports. It's just a fact of life

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Not really a fact, just your opinion.

I don't see how it's a sad thing, he would be much better off in Toronto than in Golden State or Phoenix or Dallas. If you were a Steve Nash fan you would be happy to see him living his dream of playing for his home country and able to help speed up the development of young players playing for the Raptors, because it's not like the Raptors are full of only Canadians. There's more Americans on the Raptors than Canadians. As a matter of fact, last year there was one Canadian on the Raptors and he was a scrub who barely played.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

If you polled every American sports fan and asked them if they care about Toronto sports the vast majority of them would not. Agreed?

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Blah blah more typical american ignorance blah blah blah. Maybe if Nash signs with the Raptors a few extra eskimos will take a break from seal hunting to hack through the bush to Toronto to catch a Raptors game at the ACC. The biggest igloo in the world.

Who the hell cares what American's think of Canadian sport's teams?

Who do they have that's American outside DeRozan and Davis? They are the most international team around.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

If you poll every American NBA fan and asked them if they care about the Portland Trail Blazers the vast majority of them would not. Agreed?

If you poll every American NFL fan and asked them if they care about the St. Louis Rams the vast majority of them would not. Agreed?

If you poll every American MLB fan and asked them if they care about the Kansas City Royals the vast majority of them would not. Agreed?

If you poll every American NCAA fan and asked them if they care about the Harvard sports the vast majority of them would not. Agreed?

@Chainsaw Charlie: Last year the only international players on the Raptors were Bargnani, Kleiza, Calderon and Magloire. The majority of their team was American.

I'm not saying the Raptors don't have a good, loyal fanbase. Whatever bro, continue to miss the point and take offense to something that's not at all meant to be offensive.

I agree with all of this lol. What is your point? I wouldn't want a favorite baseball player of mine signing with the Royals to end his career, a favorite football player in STL, or a favorite basketball player in Portland. I'd want them either playing for a team that gets national media attention or a contender; Nash in Toronto fits neither of those criteria. I'm sorry you are all so up in arms about my opinion. If you think Nash in Toronto is the bees knees, awesome. I don't. Let's move on.

You seem to care a lot judging by how upset your are getting about one comment I made about Nash going to Toronto.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

I understand what you're saying DZ that you as a Nash fan don't want him to sign with Toronto.

But to say that no one would care about Toronto if Nash went there and they became a playoff team that was fun and exciting to watch, I don't agree with.

Let me clarify then. Obviously a lot of people will care. Raptor fans will obviously care. Hardcore NBA fans such as yourself will care (though you would 'care' no matter where he went). But for me as someone who loves to watch Nash it's just more of a pain in the ass that I'll have to start streaming Raptors games if I want to see him play, whereas if he went to Dallas, LA, New York, ect I could just turn on ESPN or TNT.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

TNT/ESPN/NBATV will most likely give the Raptors more national TV games if Nash signs there.

It won't be as many as if he would sign with the Knicks or Mavs but they'd still get their fair share.
