    It isn't just an area. It's the most infamous intersection in the city. I think it's ridiculous that a franchise worth hundreds of millions of dollars is trying to get street cred like this.
    Yet they charge the most of any nba team for playoff tickets. Try to appeal to grassroots yet don't make tickets affordable for same people they are using for marketing purposes. Ironic. Some might consider insulting.

    I like it.

    The husky towards the end is interesting and the "Lets go Raps" as it ends.
    Looked like a wolf to me... and my buddy just told me it was based upon Game of Thrones? I don't watch the show yet, I'll take his word thoug.

    JimiCliff, this promo is going way over your head. When they show NY Knicks promos, they also show lots of hoops being played in low income areas, even though NY is one of the richest cities on the planet. Ditto for every single other franchise. Might be a shocker to you, but most NBA players grew up playing street ball in low income areas. Hardly something unique to this video.

    As a Canadian living in America, I think this video does a lot to break the stereotypes popular around here. e.g. Toronto is all white people covered in snow. I showed it to some friends and they had absolutely no idea Toronto had low income street ball areas, very similar to NYC, or that there were even very many black people living there.
    What? First of all, basketball context-wise this city is NOTHING like NYC. NYC being one of the richest cities in the world? Most of it is actually quite poor save for one borough.

    As for Toronto courts? they are few and far between, whereas NYC has a court on every damn corner.

    This video doesn't break any stereotypes of being Canadian or Canadian basketball. It actually USES stereotypes to try and make Toronto look a certain way.

    I was kinda hoping for a Bobcats matchup. They have the best cheerleaders bar-none.

    Vid was great btw. Some great visuals. Especially liked all the frozen scenes, the hoops with ice around them etc, the classic pic of the Toronto Skyline with the ice in the lake. Lightning on the CN Tower etc.
    The audio was good, had some great lines. Loved the end sequence.

    Drake blows. But no idea how that's relevant to this ad. It does a GREAT job conveying the right mood. Though to be honest without the ending 'lets go raptors' chant, the whole thing would have sucked.
