“Apparently, news of the Bobcats’ entry into the NBA stopped at the northern border three years ago … In other breaking NBA news, there are no more Vancouver Grizzlies and that Jordan guy is no longer a player.

He is right ... since we always make fun of ignorant Americans it's only fair for them to do the same

though i would say the level of their ignorance stretches way beyond mistaking a former franchise that switched names.

Doug Smith has said that he has never set foot in the ACC, so no - he doesn't likely know what building he is in, or should be in.

Marty York has no business writing about the Raptors. Maybe the last time he watched a Raptors game was when they still played at the Skydome. I'm not surprised he got it mixed up, when as LX mentioned, Doug Smith has attested to the fact that he's never seen York once at the ACC.

Hatred for Marty York aside people, that was a major blunder on the part of the printing department and they deserve getting called out for it. You can't make that kinda mistake... and if it had happened to our team this thread would 12 times as long and way more nasty than it is now

I really love how the whole point of this worhtless York drivel was to point out a "mistake." Jackass goes on to make an equally moronic mistake himself..

Oh Marty York you retard.

That's what you get when your dealing with a free publication like "The Metro".

I guess so. Still while I dont' think it's cool to jump on something like that... you can be sure Raps fans would be bringing the thunder x12 if it happened to them

I like reading Marty. He's SO far off, but you gotta appreciate that he knows nothing. It's comedic relief for me in the morning to read that. Foo Fighters + Reading Marty York's crap = great trip into work.

The SJ-York emails are pure gold. Those were a treat. I'd say go for it, SJ!
