    Default Will Toronto be the new South Beach?

    In the history of the NBA, have you ever heard this phrase uttered (at least with actual sincerity)? Check it out at the 20sec mark

    In 3-4 years Wiggins and Bennett will come to Toronto. Wiggins will do it on live TV. Book it.

    How this is possible if they live up to their expectations?

    With global warming Toronto may become the South Beach of the future but it probably won't happen in my lifetime, unfortunately.

    This Toronto love-in is great and all, it will probably continue until at least the 2016 All-star game. But, in-between and after there is reality. This team still continues to put a dysfunctional product on the floor. Toronto has to offer more than just being the city where these guys are from, in order to attract them.

    Outside, of Carmelo (who spent half his childhood in Baltimore). I can't think of a single superstar who went out of his way to go to his hometown team, for the sake of it being his hometown (Forgot Chauncey Billups). Howard didn't go to Atlanta, Bosh didn't go to Dallas, Lebron left Cleveland and Wade didn't go to Chicago, Kobe and Philly etc.... Winning and lifestyle are important.

    Was "The Decision" that long ago? More likely that I was making too much of a leap from a "shout out to Toronto" to a tongue in cheek plan for the young Canadians to reunite as Raptors when they can. If you don't know where the quote comes from...that's another story

    Guys, the OP meant 0:32 second mark.

    The questions was asking when Tristan Thompson came over to him and said a few words, he seemed to get fired up, what did Tristan say?

    The answer started with a major shoutout to Toronto: "You gotta do it for Toronto. You gotta do it for the Cleveland Cavaliers.."

    Dkm, but I think all this talk of "Canadians want to play for Toronto" is a bit of a fallacy. Sure they'd like to be here, but I don't think anyone, including Bennett and even Wiggins, would go completely out of their way to do so.

    I don't get it. What does Toronto have anything to do with a Cleveland Cavaliers win?

    Tristan Thompson brought up Toronto to motivate Bennett, both of which are from Toronto and obviously feel they are 'repping' the city.

    South Beach is still going to be the popular place for players for a while..don't think Toronto is going to be in that caliber just because some players are from there and the all-star weekend, it's a step in the right direction, though.

    Yeah, the South Beach reference doesn't really work, because now of those players were born and raised in South Beach. It's kind of a bad example because in the case of Lebron, he LEFT his hometown. So what you're hoping for is a reverse South Beach?
