Damn, you raptors fans just can't **** even try to act graceful, can you? Then again, class is not something you can learn or acquire. You're either raised with it or you're not. Keep it classy, Raps fans!
Easy there man it was a joke. You talk ab out class but what type of reaction is that for someone who talks about class? Grow up.
Grow up? I gave him props for his greatness and picked your team to win. But instead of reacting positively to the comment, you decided to gloat. It's not me who needs a lesson about class.
My personal hatred for him aside, I'm being objective. He's played at a level of greatness - as much as I hate the guy - I can't ignore it. You have to understand, my dislike for him is coming from a very personal place. Raptors fans of all people should know when a beloved star weazels his way out of town and the kind of negative emotion it generates in you as a diehard fan. I know it's easy for you to forget that now that you have another legit superstar and your bias takes over in that you don't care what he did to the other franchise cuz that's not your problem. You root for him, you support him because as far as you're concerned, his slate is clean. But that's not the case for us Spurs fans.
Despite what he did to get out of SA, I have never wished him to be injured or for him to suffer a career-altering experience. Doesn't mean he is absolved of the shenanigans he pulled in San Antonio. Doesn't mean the Raptors bandwagon fans are any less annoying or come across as nothing but a bunch of entitled wannabes (Not referring to hardcore fans. Referring to the casual bandwagoners who just want to look cool). My calling him a douchebag is me stating the reality. Not calling him a douchebag without actual evidence of him acting like one in his last year in SA.
This is the last time I will explain myself. I feel this should be enough the clear the air.
Having said that, Toronto deserves a championship as a city. If it comes at the expense of my displeasure at Kawhi winning one, I will accept that and congratulate you guys. But I can never root for him to win it. I just know given the circumstances and matchups, Raptors got this.
