CBSSports.com posted a poll asking which team will win the championship. The choices:
This is a strange way to frame the poll when just four teams remain in the playoffs – the Raptors conspicuously excluded as a direct option.
A big deal? I sure don’t think so.
But the poll aggravated many overly sensitive Canadians, including THE MAYOR OF TORONTO.
LeBron James didn’t say he was looking forward to playing the Heat. He said he wanted to play a playoff series against Dwyane Wade, and that meant facing Miami. LeBron never predicted he’d get that matchup.
And what did Toronto show Wade about shooting during O Canada? He apologized. The end.
Best of all, this whole overblown response – again, to an online poll – probably stems from Tory and his band of bellyachers not understanding context.
