    Sgt. Ray Kelly, who has been representing the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office in the media regarding the Masai incident, once "accidentally" retweeted a white nationalist:

    The more I reflect about this Raptors title the more impressive it feels. This raptors team has barely been 100% all season and they only played a handful of games altogether.

    In the playoffs, they beat the Magic (hottest team in the league from the ASG till the end of the reg season) in 5 quick games; they beat a Philly team which had 4 All stars on a memorable buzzer beater; they beat the best team in the league at the time in the Bucks, who have he MVP front runner, in 6 games (winning the last 4); and they dethroned one of basketballs greatest dynasties in golden state when everyone thought they’d lie down and die against them even with their ailments.

    The amount of stories on this team is insane as well. The raptors as a franchise had been an afterthought for much of their existence and as the only basketball team in Canada they were not only often neglected by US media but also by the hockey crazed Canadian medi. Among the players, Kawhi instantly became an ATG player with this remarkable run; Kyle silenced all his critics once and for all; Gasol and Ibaka had come up short for ages and they finally made their breakthrough; FVV went undrafted and essentially out-Curryed Curry in the 4th quarter of game 6; Siakam didn’t start playing basketball until he was almost a legal adult and here he is as a top 3 player on a chip winning team; Green played a big role in integrating Kawhi coming into this season and still played a big role despite some tough shooting games; JLin continued his fairy tale career in grand style; Masai’s GM brilliance finally paid off in a big way after years of building teams the right way and falling a bit short; Nurse coached overseas for years before getting his big break as an NBA HC and won the Larry OB in his rookie year...the list goes on and on tbh as this was easily one of the most feel-good NBA championship stories where the whole league is satisfied with their result (up there with the 2014 Spurs, and 2011 Mavs).

    A couple recent updates on the Ujiri situation:

    https://deadspin.com/alameda-county-sheriffs-office-says-body-cam-footage-cu-1835674880

    The bodycam footage cut out right before Ujiri assaulted the officer? Wow, how convenient! This is going to get laughed out of court.

    Police accuse Raptors' Masai Ujiri of striking deputy with 'two fists'

    So now he used two fists? They just keep adding things on after the fact. I'm sure tomorrow they will be accusing Ujiri of going Super Saiyan and aiming a 10x Dragon Kamehameha right at the officer's chest.

    The Alameda County Sheriff's Office needs to be investigated thoroughly, with the appropriate charges being filed against the officers responsible for this corruption.

    I'm sorry but every time I see a Sikh person now, I always think of the Raptors.
