Just who the hell do they boo now?
The Toronto Raptors traded much-maligned center Rafael Araujo yesterday. Local fans were bewildered at the news.
"Wait a second, someone actually traded for Araujo?" asked a stupified Tim Dolan, 31 of Toronto, upon being informed of the trade. "Really, they actually got 2 players for him? You are fucking shitting me."
When told of the trade George Dillon, 24 of Etobicoke, expressed his doubts, "Get the fuck outta here! How many practice balls did we get for him?"
But some hardcore fans did make attempts at rationalizing this turn of events.
"I guess Jerry Sloan misses Greg Ostertag already. Maybe that's why Utah traded two guys for him. Jerry needs some big oaf to bitch at in order to make himself happy," explained Kyle Brown, 26 of Scarborough. "Of course, I'd hate to be Kris Humphries or Robert Whaley. They have to go around believing that they are only worth half of Araujo. Man, that's gotta suck."
Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo has already been awarded the 2007 NBA Executive of the Year. Upon touching the trophy it immediately turned into solid gold.
