    Ya, if there's more to the story then I'm all ears. But man, this type of careless labeling is absolutely rampant these days. White guy pushes black guy = RACIST!!! Get the pitchforks!!!

    He's part owner of the opposing team and they were losing. Frustration seems like a more reasonable motive here than racism. All this does is dilute the word and make it harder to spot and fight actual racism. (unless there's more to the story as to why this might have anything to do with race).

    Kyle Lowry says Mark Stevens told him to 'go ---- yourself'....

    "Yeah. Multiple times."

    I'd hope this is the reasoning why the guy did what he did,

    Lowry landed right where what seems to be Mark Stevens wife would be sitting and just missed her while she was standing. Maybe he was pissed he could have hurt his wife.

    Now the racist undertones...black successful man who is excited sitting at courtside seats in Toronto gets crucified by media, white guy who pushes a player gets little media attention. I see it as more that than Mark Stevens vs Lowry. Then again, there was a kid in Denver who tugged on Westbrooks jersey and the dad was laughing about it, meanwhile Westbrook had to scold the kid. It got barely any air time. There's something going on here with courtside seats that are creeping into the league, and it needs to stop now. Again in Denver a fan was on the floor screaming in Westbrooks face after the game and Westbrook pushed him. (probably just talked my way out of it being maybbeee a bit racist angle)

    The stuff happening in the courtside seats are getting to the point where the next time something happens, it might be a large incident.

    I don't really watch much basketball. But I curious if anyone knows if a team has ever won a championship while being the betting underdog in every game of the series?

    Raptors being up 3-1 was definitely not part of the script

    I didn't think they'd win a game; it really is unreal.

    I was tempted to buy a pair of decent upper bowl seats for Game 5 earlier this week when it was 1-1. The tickets were $1200 each at the time... now it's $3400 for worst nosebleed seats. FML

    I'm really torn on this... once in a lifetime event, but even with my means I can't justify those prices. It is truly insane.

    That's crazy. To be honest, as much as it would be fun to say you were in the arena, I think I'd be just as happy to fill a packpack with "fluids" and snacks and watch the game with the crowd in Jurassic Park. That atmosphere looks crazy too.

    Wasn't Durant supposed to be back last game? I think they've punted enough times now....

    Yeah they did. Like I said I had the same injury as him three years ago. It took me 25 days to return to beer league baseball (thanks to some amazing and horribly painful physio) but I wasn't running well at all until the 8-week mark. Basketball is so much more demanding on your legs. I doubt we see Durant and if we do it'll be in limited capacity.

    I've thought about this too. But when it comes down to a trip to the Caribbean or one game that they might lose....I can't justify it.

    If they win whatever you end up doing will be magical don't you worry.
