The Toronto Raptors were a little excited that they ere playing Game 1 of they first round series at home on Saturday against the Brooklyn Nets. As it turns out, they were so excited that the Toronto Sun decided to troll the Nets by taking a page out of the New York tabloid book of headlines.
But as it would turn out, the Nets roughed up the Raptors in their first game and that opened the already wide open door for the New York Daily News to troll the Sun and the Raptors with a dose of their usually medicine.

The response was to Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri psyching up the crowd of thousands outside of Air Canada Centre with his expletive laced rally cry not that different from the headline in the NY Daily News.
Basketball is the main story here, but it would appear that this tabloid headline war is just getting started.
