    The Toronto Raptors will be playing their home games in Tampa

    From Bleacher report
    .....


    Raptors will begin their season in Tampa, Florida, as Canadian government won't allow them to play in Toronto

    Wouldn't Buffalo be a better option.
    The old NBA Braves played there.

    Raptors playing is a contradiction in terms.

    NBA is terrible

    Which reminds me of the time a couple of years ago I'm playing a poker tournament and one of the players at my table was from Charlotte.
    The whole table had a good rapport, anyway when I asked him where he was from he said "Charlotte" and I replied, "nice city, too bad you don't have a pro basketball team there"

    He had a good sense of humor.
