This was supposed to be the year the Raptors finally got over the roadblock known as LeBron James and possibly make it to the NBA Finals. The third time against LeBron was the charm said all the experts. There’s no way the Raptors could possibly lose to the Cavs again after LeBron played a million minutes to carry his sorry group of teammates through a seven-game series against the Pacers.
So much for that.

The Raptors choked away Game 1, and were just flat out dominated by LeBron and Kevin Love in Game 2. Things got so bad during Thursday’s contest that ESPN’s Mark Jones buried Toronto and renamed the city “LeBronto” after the third quarter:

I’m not a Mark Jones guy at all, but that’s clever — and it inspired the Internet to do their thing and come up with some disrespectful photoshops at the expense of The Six and noted fanboy/team ambassador Drake. Check them out in the gallery above, we’ll continue to add on as they filter in.
