- Arena called Air Canada Centre
- Canadian flag on our backboards

+ Everytime a player looks up at the jumbotron they see a massive Canadian logo.

^ I shudder to think about what more they'd want to do. Paint beavers and mounties on the court?
Exactly. Not to mention it will be all for not when the NBA eventually reaches Vancouver again.

We're constantly trying to battle the different country/climate stereotype when attracting players. Why add fuel to that?
