The Toronto Raptors find themselves in good spirits heading into Game 4 of the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors.
A win Friday night in Oakland could all but end the series, giving Toronto its first ever title.
Unfortunately for the Raptors, geography has not proven to be a strong suit. They posted a hype photo ahead of Game 3 in Oakland that caught the eye of confused spectators. It included members of the team on the San Francisco Golden Gate bridge, looking north to Martin County.
At least for now, the Warriors still play in Oakland. The United States’ most iconic bridge has nothing to do with that city.
Ahead of Game 4, the Raptors decided to troll themselves in a glorious manner. Check it out.
The Raptors get an A for originality. They also receive an A-plus for mocking themselves.
This is a scene from the Academy Award nominated 1996 movie “The Rock” starring Sean Connery and Nicolas Cage depicting terrorists seizing control of Alcatraz Island.
Where exactly is that island, one might ask. In the San Francisco Bay. It will be adjacent to the new Warriors arena in the city.
If Toronto’s on-court performance is as good as its social media performance, the Warriors might end up going dark much like that now defunct prison.
