I would have to agree... imagine any player born and raised in the states... come to Toronto to play... and during their off-season everyone asks "How is Canada.. how are the igloos..." - they have to hear it from people they grew up - defend a city and country because they don't know Canada (which probably gets tiring)! And I am sure, the player falls into the jokes and goes along with it...
I am for international players 100%... as they appreciate a) being in the NBA, and b) Toronto's multicultural makeup
