Dwane Casey Wants Toronto Fanbase To Be Like Milwaukee’s
This was a surprise. When Toronto Raptors head coach Duane Casey met with the media on Sunday, he talked about how Milwaukee Bucks crowd was on fire basically for Game 3 and 4. Casey sung high praises for a fanbase that isn’t known for selling out the arena. Many Bucks fans would not have thought after four games, the coach of Raptors is asking his fans to be the loud ones as Toronto is known for having one of the best fanbases in the NBA especially in the last few years of success.

I’ve said it before how Milwaukee is a bandwagon city (Not a bad thing, just facts), and when they get a chance to show out, they do just that. Remember what Miller Park sounded like in 2008 and 2011 and what it will sound like this October (I kid). Milwaukee loves their teams and will show it with being some of the loudest fans in basketball. What’s also lost is this is a basketball state and city. Milwaukee is rich with hoops tradition from prolific high school programs, Marquette and Bucks. Wisconsin’s success in basketball means more pay attention to the game even if Badger hoops and Bucks fans don’t always mesh. Toronto now received the call from Casey to answer to the call.
By the way, I sneaky loved the fans in the reporter’s mentions cape for “The reason we aren’t loud is due to expensive tickets’ and “Bucks tickets were 40 dollars.” Uh nope. Not even close. I love that though. Not only are Bucks in Raptors’ head, their fans are also mental midgets.
