Warriors' executive gets choked up talking about Kevin Durant injury

Toronto Raptors players were forced to try and quiet their own fans who were cheering when Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant was injured during Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday night.

An anonymous fan reportedly sent flowers and a card with a get-well message for Durant to the Warriors offices, apologizing "on behalf of Canada". I can't even believe those dumbass Raptors fans cheered when they saw you were injured. I don't know, but there's a lot out there that needs to be answered. I hereby apologize on behalf of Canada. That came about 18 months prior to the explosion of Woods' personal life, but even after the last tremors of his scandal settled, Woods had to fight through multiple injuries, including a torn Achilles - he played through that for much of 2009 - and back injuries that literally left him flat on his back and unable to swing a club. He took to Instagram to congratulate his team and to comment on his devastating injury.

Sidelined by a calf injury since the second round of the post-season, Durant made his long-awaited return to the Golden State lineup on Monday for a must win Game Five of the NBA Finals only to go down suddenly in the opening minutes of the second quarter with a suspected Achilles injury.

As it turns out, not all Canadian Raptors fans are jerks. General manager Bob Meyers gave an emotional address, Steve Kerr called the scene "eerie and strange", Steph Curry was confused by how out of character it was, and DeMarcus Cousins' wasted no time in letting some expletives fly.

"It's not my experience with the people of this city", said Curry. I commend Danny Green and Kyle Lowry especially. "He just told me he was going to be okay and not to worry". I was just glued on him, and glued on his eyes to see how he was doing. That's it. That's all that ever matters.

If the series goes to Game 7, the arena will open its doors again on Sunday June 16, at 6 p.m., for a 7 p.m. start time. The Raptors still control the series being up 3-2.
