The NBA Playoffs tip-off today, thus beginning the best time of the year. The Toronto Raptors host the Brooklyn Nets at 12:30. To help get things going, the Toronto Sun used this headline. The line at the bottom – ‘Garnett & Pierce are so old the Raptor had to ask his dad about them” – is particularly cruel. According to Basketball-Reference, the average age of this season’s Toronto Raptors is 25.6 while the DinoNets are 30. [@WolstatSun]
