The Toronto Raptors fan base did not bathe in glory when some applauded Kevin Durant's injury during Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday night.
But an anonymous Raptors fan tried to hit on Tuesday by sending a floral arrangement to the Warriors offices to apologize "on behalf of Canada." The class gesture also had a banner that read "Canada is sorry".
"Dear KD and the warriors: I can not even believe those idiots – Raptors fans cheered when they saw that you were hurt," the letter said via NBC Sports. "I was watching the game and it felt horrible. It was a total misfortune. I hereby apologize on behalf of Canada. Prayers for recovery.
Warriors players were furious with the Toronto fans' reaction to the injury after keeping the season alive with a 106-105 victory. Game 6 is scheduled for Thursday night in Oakland.
"It was bull-t," Gold State guard Klay Thompson told reporters. "That was ridiculous. I can not even put into words how angry I was with this. "
It was discovered that Durant suffered an Achilles tendon injury, the severity of which is still unknown.
