NBA Playoffs 2016: Cavaliers get held up at the border on their way into Canada

Did the border police decide to try and slow down the Cavaliers?

The Cavaliers have steamrolled their way through the first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals. So far, the only people capable of stopping them have been the...Canadian Border Patrol?

From Richard Jefferson's snap chat account:

(Give it a minute, get past the hyperbaric chamber stuff, etc)

I have a bunch of thoughts about these clips. First, the shirt? The shirt. That shirt is just crazy.

But we are not here to praise or disparage the Cavaliers' fashion choices. Instead, let's focus on how the team's plane was held up for an hour as they tried to enter Canada. I'm super curious as to the reasons. Did the police force see who was entering Canadian territory and decide to mess with them? Did the Cavs fail to properly fill out the paperwork?

So many questions.
