US media never really cared about Toronto and likely won't until we win a championship. When we traded for Jermaine, one of the better pf/cs in the league in this era, it got about two minutes of attention from the majority of talk show hosts on the "worldwide leader in sports," or at least on the Toronto side. Some didn't even mention it. But when Philly signed Brand, a slightly worse and less accomplished version of Jermaine, they went from a lower level playoff team to a possible contender that had the US media using most of their running time for over a week on. The point I'm trying to make is that it is unlikely for US media to ever talk about Chris like that, unless he is hoisting a trophy. American sports media just doesn't care that much about anything north of the US-Canada border.
