After getting swept aside in the 2018 Eastern Conference Semifinals, Toronto GM Masai Ujiri had had enough.

Up is down. Black is white. Cats and dogs, living together. Mass hysteria. And the Lakers are the joke of the NBA.
After seeing two altercations in the NBA that involved the fans, I have to ask, since when is being a jerk a badge of honor?

Dear Mr. Preller and Mr. Fowler:
This past July I wrote a letter to the fictitious MLB Office of Fandom Affairs for my website (SquareUpSports.com) I’ve been a San Diego Padres fan my whole life and grew up during the Ray Kroc ownership days. But after yet another disappointing losing season, I opted out of my lifetime contract and entered fan free agency. Frankly, I was tired of watching other fan bases celebrate a title year after year while I toiled as a Padre fan like a sad combination of Sisyphus and Job.
To use poker vernacular, the Los Angeles Lakers have pushed all their chips into the pot hoping to eek out a gut-shot straight. And the odds aren't in their favor.
