Monday night will likely go down as one of the most infamous and ugly nights in Toronto sports history. Not only did the Raptors let a 6-point lead slip in the final three minutes, but fans cheered as Kevin Durant went down on the court injured, in what has proven to be a torn right Achilles. The 106-105 Warriors win sends the NBA Finals back to Oakland, but before the Warriors flew back to the Bay, they returned to their hotel at the Ritz-Carlton in Toronto.
There was a video before Game 1 of the Finals of head coach Steve Kerr being heckled by Raptors fans asking Kerr in jest whether the Raptors would win the series in five or six games.
Kerr responded, “I take them in eight.”
The heckling against Sonya Curry, the mother of Stephen Curry, was not as polite. In the video above, you can hear some Raptors fans yelling expletives including, “F**k you,” multiple times at Sonya and Dell Curry, although one fan at the end of the video appears to say, “Yeah Dell, yeah Dell, legend. Dell, you the man Dell. Dell, you the man Dell, don’t even listen to these guys.”
