I remember last week getting a Toronto sun and seeing the NBA playoffs covered on page 16-18. Before that 8 pages of NHL playoffs, NFL lockout, Lacross, Jays on page 9 or 10 and eventually the NBA. IMO that doesn't reflect the lack of overall NBA fans which in Toronto in particular there a lot of, but it reflects the ignorance of the media in this city. Although I will say that anytime I've gone to bar during the playoffs, if there were enough TV's getting an NBA game on isn't an issue. I know a couple pubs in Scarborough were some of the bartenders love basketball and make sure that the games are on along with the NHL playoffs.
