Raptors fans in Jurassic Park cheered, waved bye when Kevin Durant got hurt
Toronto Raptors fans who were inside Scotiabank Arena for Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday night have been criticized for the way they reacted to Kevin Durant suffering another injury, and the fans viewing the game from outside deserve just as much scrutiny.
Jurassic Park, the fan viewing area outside Scotiabank Arena, has gained popularity throughout the postseason for the passion Raptors fans have shown in supporting their team. However, several of them crossed the line when they cheered and waived goodbye as Durant hobbled off the court.

Even some Raptors players scolded fans who were cheering when Durant went down, so they probably won’t think much of the reaction from Jurassic Park, either. Durant being out probably gives Toronto a better chance to win, but openly rooting for injuries is pretty low.
If you’re going to stand in line for an entire day just to get into Jurassic Park, don’t make it so you can root for star players on the other team to get hurt.
