    just caught that part, these americans really think this country is 3rd class
    The uneducated unworldly Americans. It's hard for them. They're fed absurd propaganda about their own country from the time they can spit up on themselves. Most of them subordinate their own personal identity to that of the country. They are an American first and then John Smith second. Sad really...and it definitely breeds this type of ignorance.

    Remember when they were angry at France for not joining they're little military Oil expedition to Iraq? And they started calling French Fries freedom fries? Nothing more needs to be said...just, Wow.

    doesn't really anger me at all. its not like we were in position to draft him or had a draft night trade planned for the pick. it's cool.

    it just shows if you're a winner and have exciting players people will WANT to play for you.

    Really guys. Taking it a little far. Lots about America to dislike, but there is a reason that most of the world still wants to move there instead of here. Cheap food, cheap housing, lots of entrepreneurial energy, great opportunity to pursue whatever your dream is. The US leads the world in technology, productivity, and lots of other stuff.

    Flip side is ghettos, racism (worse than in Canada I think...can't swear to it though since I am not a member of a minority group), and a government that lets you crash if things tank, unless you are a major corporation or a big political campaign contributor.

    Not really news, he said that before. Vince Carter raptors were a huge influence on him growing up. He has always been pro Toronto.

    Without America no nba and 90% of my favorite tv programs. Please don't make me watch Dutch basketball and tv shows.

    Default Kevin Durant's Dream was to play for the Raptors!!

    I think I can include this in the "everything Raptors" thread so here it goes:

    http://network.yardbarker.com/nba/ar...ptors/12721750

    Yup, you heard it from the man himself. KD was a big fan of Vince Cart(re) and had dreams of being a part of the culture change that VC did for Toronto. 2006 would have given us a chance to pick either KD or Greg Oden had Mr. Stern had allowed kids to jump from High School to the NBA for just one more season.

    Then again, we probably would have gotten Greg Oden instead... who knows...

    Yeah, nothing against but this forum was here not so long ago. But that doesn't matter much.

    I definetly would be more than willing to make his dream come true. Wouldn't you?
