Raptors General Manager Masai Ujiri apologized after dropping the F-bomb before Saturday's playoffs game.

"F--- Brooklyn!", Ujiri boomed outside the ACC, sending the crowd into a frenzy. Ujiri's boss, Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment CEO Tim Leiweke was at his side. He smiled and shook his head as both men hurried off stage.

"Wrong choice of words," he later told reporters. "I apologize to kids out there and to the Brooklyn guys.

"Nothing against them. Just trying to get our fans going. That's it."

Speaking to TSN, he added, "We're proud. We want to stand up tall as a Canadian team. We're the only team in Canada and eh, we're going to try and make it hell for any team coming to play here."


Ujiri could be fined by the NBA for his pre-game F-bomb.

Before the start of the series, reports surfaced that the Nets had lost regular season games on purpose to secure a playoff matchup with the Raptors.

Ujiri said he and his team "haven't lost one second of sleep worrying about the Brooklyn Nets."

    A typical idiot who thinks swearing is cool. Swearing only shows a lack of respect for oneself and others, a lack of English skills and shows a lack of intelligence.

      @Joe I can certainly see why you would think that about sports fans but we're not all drunken "Bros". I'm a huge NFL fan and I'm usually glued to the TV during the short season but that's as far as it goes. Some of us are cerebral, soft spoken, intelligent people who happen to love athletics.
