Brooklyn borough president fires back at Masai Ujiri with...'Let's go Nets!'

Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

By now the whole world is aware of Toronto Raptors GM Masai Ujiri's not-to-kid-friendly shot at Brooklyn, when he proclaimed his disdain for the borough prior to Saturday's Game 1 matchup, saying "F--- Brooklyn!" It seems like only a matter of time before NBA commissioner Adam Silver weighs in and responds to Ujiri, likely slapping him with a fine, but until then, we'll have to settle for a response from Brooklyn borough president Eric Adams to give the unofficial Brooklyn retort to Ujiri's mic-drop moment.

Here, from our friends at The Brooklyn Game, is Adams' response:

"It's unfortunate that the Raptors' GM felt so desperate facing against our Nets that he would throw profanity around discussing our beloved borough, but I can't say I'm surprised. After all, Brooklyn is a classier place. Just compare Babs to Biebs, or spend some time with their...colorful mayor. Still, we spread love; it is, after all, the Brooklyn way.

"Rather than mess with verbal barbs, I say it's 'put up or shut up time', Toronto! I'm willing to send up North some of Brooklyn's best if the Raptors can prevail, perhaps a six-pack from Brooklyn Brewery or a CD from the First Family of hip-hop. The ball is in Mayor Ford's court to meet the challenge.

"Let's go Nets!"

Well done, Mr. Adams.

Now, of course, the Nets responded in their own way by beating the Raptors in Game 1 and, after the game, having Jason Kidd throw a "who's he?" shade on Ujiri, which was a perfect response, but for now we can accept Adams' response on the unofficial-official statement from the people of Brooklyn.

Much like on these here boards, there's generally no better response to an "f-bomb" than simply dropping a "Let's go Nets!" on someone.
