LeBronto is planning for the future, one that likely won’t include Raptors basketball for much longer this season. #LeBronto as a revised name for Canada’s largest city was suggested by ESPN announcer Mark Jones during the broadcast of the Cavaliers win over the Toronto Raptors in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.

So LeBronto needs to be prepared if the Cavaliers finish off the Raptors season in a four-game sweep, with Game 4 in Cleveland on Monday night.
The Raptors don’t seem to have an an answer for LeBron James, who has led the Cavs to nine straight playoff wins over Toronto. That’s the first three games of this series, a sweep in the conference semis last season and the final two games of the Eastern Conference Finals in 2016 after the Raptors had rallied to tie that series at 2-2.
In those nine games, James is averaging 40.8 minutes, 34.1 points, 8.3 rebounds and 7.6 assists.
You can’t stop the player. You can’t stop the name. You may as well lean into it.
So here’s our summer tourism video for LeBronto. It seems lovely.
