Hey he grew up in Canada so we'll cut him some slack. The Toronto Raptors were named to capitalize upon the popularity of Jurassic Park. That's not as bad as The Mighty Ducks debacle but it isn't far off. The best player that played his prime years in Toronto was Vince Carter and he admitted that he basically tanked his way out of town. Basically being a Raptors fan must be tough. With that said hats off to those fans because they stick with their team through the good times and all the bad times. If you haven't guessed it from the title or the picture on this post our own rookie Kelly Olynyk grew up as a Raptors fan.
