Kelly Olynyk grew up a diehard Toronto Raptors fan

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...

Recap: A circus ending leads to another C’s preseason loss to Toronto, 99-97

With under a minute to go in the fourth quarter, the Celtics were trailing the Toronto Raptors by three, 95-92.  Inexplicably, they fouled intentionally.  At least it seemed that it was intentional.  Chris Babb fouled Dwight Buycks (who?!?!) made both free throws to make it a 5 point game that the Raptors would not relinquish.  MarShon Brooks did hit a three just after that,...

Another comeback falls short for Celtics in preseason loss to Raptors
