Toronto Raptors GM says “F*** Brooklyn!” to fans

Looks like the Raptors are pretty fired up — maybe a little too fired up. Addressing fans before Game 1 of their first-round series against the Nets, Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri had a mic-dropping moment to end his speech, saying “F— BROOKLYN!” to huge cheers. Watch below:

When asked about the comments after the game, Nets head coach Jason Kidd said they wouldn’t act as motivation for his team, adding: “I don’t know who the (Raptors) GM is.”

“I could care less what they think about Brooklyn,” Kidd later added. “We got a job to do and that’s play basketball.”

Ujiri issued a statement at halftime apologizing, but with a little addition: “I don’t like them.”

Update: Ujiri was fined $25,000 for the comment.
