In the end, it meant nothing.

In the beginning, it probably meant nothing also.

Masai Ujiri said what he shouldn't have said. He was walking off the stage in Maple Leaf Square and put the microphone back to his mouth one more time. He said: "Bleep Brooklyn."

Only he didn't say bleep.

It has nothing to do with the fact the Raptors were out-manned and out-defended by the Brooklyn Nets in their first playoff game in six years.

What Ujiri thinks, says, or does to get his own crowd going is his business -- but it will in no way impact what is going on with the Nets.

In fact, somewhere the Nets must be a laughing just a little about the "dinosaur" reference on the front cover of Saturday's Toronto Sun and an expletive spoken by the normally soft-spoken GM.

It will be expensive, though, for Ujiri.

Expect the NBA to fine Ujiri handsomely for his apparently inappropriate words.
