Why did Raptors fans abandon the #WeTheNorth hashtag and light it up with #WeTheOther today?
Because CBS Sports NBA tweeted a poll asking who would win the NBA Final, naming every team in the running EXCEPT Toronto, listing them as ‘Other’.

CBS Sports has apologized, and gave an explanation for the poll, which has since been corrected:
We posted it before Game 7! Raptors/Heat wouldn’t fit! We love you, Canada! https://t.co/FStrHVn0pU

Game One of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals is tonite in Cleveland. It’s the first appearance for the Toronto Raptors this far in the playoffs.
