    Default Bike Ride with Rudy Gay

    Not sure if this was mentioned yet in the forums, but apparently Rudy's doing this bike ride thing along the harborfront tomorrow. https://twitter.com/rudygay22/status/383382946196897792

    Seems like a neat idea.

    So yea I was downtown for an appointment already so I figured I'd go meet Rudy. He ended up bringing the crew with him. Derozan's wife and kid were even there. Shame Lowry or JV wasn't around. Anyway here are some pics from the event:


    2013-2014 all-star


    They definitely look a lot taller in person


    Amir didn't want to be in the picture


    Didn't know amir had his own tshirts


    Acy needs a bigger bike







    And last but not least,


    SWAG

    Not sure how many forum members here have met them in person, but they didn't seem that enthused. Even though it's "Rudy's" event and not something hosted by the raptors, he didn't really seem engaged. Maybe that's just how he is. Many of them didn't want to hang around to take photos with fans after the ride. I even heard one of the staff telling Acy and Dwight that they were free to leave and didn't need to take photos with us if they didn't want to.

    I can kind of understand though since these guys are primarily ball players and engaging fans is something they still need to get used to. As other members have mentioned before though, Gray was the easiest one to approach. He was down to earth and was open to chatting with fans and taking photos with them. Shame that most of the kids either a) didn't know he was a raptor or b) didn't want to talk to him lol. He was standing amongst the crowd but not many people were going up to him.

    Surprised Lowry wasnt there but its all good guys been putting in work all summer his body is probably in tip top shape by now!

    Super cool that Rudy organized this we need someone besides Amir to do stuff for the fans and community in Toronto way to go Rudy! Really makes me wonder what Rudy knows about the teams direction? think about it if Ujiri said hes being placed in a potential deal sometime would he do this for Toronto? also he gave away laptops to a class earlier? sounds like a franchise guy if you ask me...

    OR I could be overthinking things.....

    I didn't think they'd take such a crappy route. There's so much traffic down at the Harbourfront and with all the construction going on and the bike lanes still being put in, it's a big mess.

    You're getting a bunch of highly trained athletes following each other while stuck in Toronto traffic. There's no real way to enjoy that.
