Letter: Apology from Toronto to Warriors for cheers at Durant’s fall

Apology to Warriors, fans
for cheering Durant’s fall

Re: “Curry, Thompson at their best with season on the line” (Page C3, June 11)

I wish to convey my apologies to the Oakland and area Golden State Warriors and NBA fans over the “classless” act displayed by some of our fans when Kevin Durant went down, clutching at his right leg during Game 5 here in Toronto.

Kevin Durant is without a doubt a superstar in the league and our fans were fortunate to get to watch him play even for a short period.

There is no room in the game for so-called fans who cheer when such a player goes down with an injury. I was embarrassed by the conduct of some of our fans and I sincerely wish to apologize to the Warriors team and fans.

When we demonstrate such inhumane behavior, we deserve to lose and we did. All the very best to Kevin in his recovery. Toronto is better than this, as is Canada.
