I don’t know how many people live in Canada off the top of my head. But this seems like a big percentage of the country. I’d imagine there is something like 40-80 million people in Canada.

Pretty small %wise, esp. when you consider that a lot of the cheering was for the play and not the injury.


Still, the fact that you did see people waving at KD directly after means there were too many wastemans at the game.

Lets not forget that Fred VV & Kevin D got into an argument 2 minutes prior to KD going down. So fans could have been cheering that. Some fans closer to the court were not acting properly (throat slashes) as cheering any injury is not right and classless, but to say that all the fans were cheering for the injury is wrong. The fans chanted "KD KD" as he was leaving the floor. I love the raptors but certainly not TORONTO.
