Finally, the Raptors are known for a second thing.

Pretty sad that Kevin Durant got Two Days To Retiremented on his free agency but I admit I think it's pretty funny that the guy the Warriors won with when he was on the court and lost without was undone by a torn Achilles Heel.

Klay Thompson too.

Of course in his case he was clearly the one who wanted to go back in with a torn ACL. Durant's decision is more a spread-the-blame around sort of deal; either his medical team fucked up, or Durant overrode their decision because he wanted to play. Stars like Durant employ people specifically to guard against that sort of thing, so no idea where his agent, GM, etc. where when their meal-ticket either self-destructed or was grossly ill-served by quackery.

Sucks for them both regardless.

Incidentally, I was glad Toronto lost game five after the ghastly way the fans treated KD that night. Classless; downright gross even. I was fucking embarrassed.

That rallied GS and the fans got what they deserved. If GS had gone on to win the series on the back of that anger, I would have said this city had it coming.

In any case the Raps themselves played pretty fucking classy (and well, obv), so at least the team deserved the win.

Don't you worry. He'll return in Darkman II.
