Stern don't give a shit about the Raptors or Canada lol. He just understands that Toronto is a large market (top 5 in North America),that'll support their sports teams even if they lose year after year. No matter who had the gig T.O. would've eventually got a team,it's always the first city outside of the U.S. when expansion is considered.

If he did,he would've pulled the plug on the Nets heist for Vince Carter like he did with the Lakers and Chris Paul. ( when he and his boys owned the Hornets).
