Chris Bosh Still Unhappy with Toronto Crowd

The effect of the booing of the Toronto Raptors late in their 96-86 NBA loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday still rippled through the Air Canada Centre yesterday morning.

"If I wanted to get booed, I’d go on the road," forward Chris Bosh had said after the loss, in which his team held a 13-point first-half lead.

Yesterday after practice, Bosh talked about how he sees the importance of fans.

"Fans, whether they know it or not, they dictate a lot," he said. "They’re a major, major part of the game. You know walking into other buildings, it’s tough to play sometimes if the fans are being supportive, if they’re loud."
