Warriors. Thunder. Cavaliers. Other.
An online CBS Sports poll asked which remaining NBA playoff team would take the title. Golden State was the first option, followed by Oklahoma City and Cleveland. The fourth team wasn’t our beloved Raptors, but was instead listed as “other”!
This has prompted Raps fans to use the term “We the Other” in place of “We the North” on social media.
Even Toronto Mayor John Tory got involved, posting an open letter to CBS Sports chair Sean McManus to Twitter!
CBS provided an explanation (now removed) that claims the poll had been constructed before the Raptors were able to seize a spot in the next round after cooling the Miami Heat.
The poll has been updated, this time with the Raptors included.
