Default NBA.COM Ignoring Trade?

Am I the only one who's noticed that the O'Neal/Marion trade hasn't been mentioned at the NBA.COM site? I guess the Raptors have a pretty small market, but the Transactions webpage hasn't even mentioned the Marion acquisition yet. The only place I saw acknowledgement of the trade was in the player profiles.

Just kind of bugs me that a trade like that goes unnoticed.

lol no they had it on the first day marion came to toronto its just cause it was all-star they put it on the bottom under the cisco stuff instead of in the top part. I dont why it isnt in the transactions page but it was there i saw it.

The deal was on the 'ticker' thing at the top with Oneal and Marion pictured. It's old news now...no need to make this into an anti canadian thing.

I wasn't saying it was a Canadian thing. It just seems like the Raps get overlooked a lot. You'd think that a transactions page for the league page would list a deal like that,

a market in sports is not dictated according by population, rather tv deals, revenue by merchandise..ect..

T.O's 6M + residents means shit when curling/hockey beats B-Ball in TV viewers...

in the end the nba only cares about their big name franchises like the celtics and lakers or the teams with the biggest name stars like lebron because when it comes down to it all its all about popularity
raptors are next to the bottom when it comes to popularity
you can see it happening on the court when calls are being made
