The Raptors and Nets kicked off the 2014 NBA Playoffs a couple hours ago. In a pre-game speech at Maple Leaf Square in Toronto, Raptors GM Masai Ujiri, ended his talk by telling the crowd, “F*** Brooklyn.” The playoffs have started you guys.

National Post sports columnist Bruce Arthur informed the masses on Twitter about Masai’s pre-game junk:

Obviously his comments opened up an opportunity for a calvacade of Twitter jokes that followed:

Masai qualified himself a bit later, and though he apologized, he wasn’t exactly contrite (nor should he be).

We lived in Brooklyn for three years before moving out to the suburbs, but we’re still so excited the playoffs are finally here.
