Before the Raptors-Nets series began, the Toronto Sun got under the skin of the Nets by calling them dinosaurs on the front page of the paper. Then, on Sunday, after the Nets win in Game 1, the New York Daily News responded with “Don’t F*** With B’Klyn,” a response to GM Masai Ujiri’s pre-game comment.
Well last night the Raptors got their first playoff win in six years, evening the series at one game a piece. But it wasn’t just on the court that Toronto got even. The Toronto Sun issued this headline today, celebrating last night’s victory.
Just wanted to take a moment to say… I love the Canadian Media. Quite creative. pic.twitter.com/UQ3aPLp8TK

This is fantastic. Nothing offensive, nothing over the line, just some solid city-on-city trash talk.
