Toronto Raptors to play Pre-Season game in Montreal against New York Knicks - Oct 22

Last time they tried it tanked. I wonder how it will go this time around.

No official announcement yet, but Raptors beat writers are pretty sure it's happening.

Even if this is early, I think that to get a success, they would need to advertise it right now! We have some NBA fans here, but enough to buy tickets to fill the Bell?

No advertising? Failure!

McGrady, Carter, Davis vs Houston, Camby and Sprewell!

This is the last time I watched an NBA game. I assume the teams haven't changed a whole lot.

How come the Article says Oct. 7 possible and you put Oct. 22 on the thread title... Where is the Oct. 22 info? Is that the official date?

If it happens and the tickets aren't too expensive I'll go, even though it's gonna be a battle of teh suck.

I'm not expecting more than 12-13,000 in the Bell Center, and that seems like a very optimistic expectation to me.

If it's on October 22 I'll be there for sure but there's no way I'm missing the Habs opener if it's on Oct. 7. I doubt they'll be stupid enough to put it that day anyway...

Well L'Attaque a 5 is finished, so you're chances of going to the game are higher.

I'd go if the tickets are cheap since I have never seen a NBA game live, but I wouldnt pay more than 20$ to see a pre-season game.

I remember watching the New York Jets play the Cleveland Browns at the Big O. Tons of New York fans. Gastineau sacked someone and did the dance and the place went nuts.

Or seeing Rickey Henderson in a Yankees uniform in left field in Montreal. Bizarre.

I dont care for basketball, the sport bores me. But, if your a NBA fan, living in Montreal.. why wouldn't you go? The tickets will likely be cheap and its a chance to see NBA. A good experience for NBA fans.

edit
Bjays 27th in attendance in MLB and very last road draw. ouch

Lol this is like sending Columbus and Florida to play an pre-season game in Las Vegas. It's just not appealing, send the celtics,Lakers,etc here and people will go

Honestly, I hope it sells out. However, I hope no one cheers the raptors. I know 0 about basketball but **** the raptors.
