I watch the Raptors when there's nothing else on. I used to support them a lot but the parity in the NBA sucks, it just gets annoying to see the same exact teams in the playoff/finals every year. They've had like 8 different teams win in the last 33 years? The records are crazy, teams go 65-17, while others go 17-65 or worse.
I watch them and cheer for them to win but I'm not really a supporter at all. If the Leafs lose I'm pissed, if Milos loses I'm pissed, if the Raptors lose I decide what I'm going to eat because I could careless about being pissed.
Well,I figured that basketball contingent in Canada isn't that wide, but I understand the annoyance of having several franchises dominating year after year. Big markets attract big names, that's how the circle works in the NBA.
By the way, Raps traded for Rudy Gay, All - Star caliber SF, maybe he'll be enough to push them for the playoffs?
