I guess helping to turn around a franchise from his home country and being regarded as hero in Canada isnt important to him. Riding the coattails of other players for an NBA championship is much more noble.

IMO turning the raptors into a respectable team and becoming a national hero is a more epic accomplishment than "only wanting to play for a championship contender, that was already a contender before he got there." I guess some people don't care about legacys and hometown pride.
