convinced that Raptors fans are only happy when they're unhappy.

Default Jalen Comments On The Raptors & Toronto

Good to see that Jalen thinks people are underestimating us this season, but sad to see hear the ignorance there still is around the league regarding our franchise.

And he said Toronto, because everyone underestimates Toronto, and then he said something along the lines of the following:

"When I played for Toronto and I was down in the states and I told people I played for Toronto, they would say, "Toronto's in the NBA?""

If that's how obscure Toronto is amongst joe sixpack in the states, that kind of concerns me, in terms of how this team is perceived by American draft prospects and free agents.

Sounds to me like Jalen was trying to be funny.

Jalen just says whatever he thinks will advance his broadcasting career he was already thinking about being a broadcaster in the last 5 years of his career. I love Jalen as I am a big Michigan fan. But he has always been a media wanta be. I am sure as time goes on he will improve as a broadcaster but I think he has a long way to go.

Jalen is still one of my all time favourite NBA personalities, and I think he'll make a great broadcaster in due time.

He played for Toronto, but he never competed for Toronto.

no one even puts Toronto down
if we were a championship team we'd be respected just like the celtics and spurs are
if your shit, your shit
why would you take us seriously, we got 2 bigs? average/below average wings and a solid PG.
Dont take us lightly in the playoffs, but neither should a team worry about us knocking them out of the playoffs.

You do realize you're contradicting yourself right?
