Front page of SI? wow.
I guess the Raptor is more popular than the Raptors players.

Ditto on the love for Zach Lowe, he's BY FAR my favourite bball journalist.
This doesn't really belong here, but I'm to lazy to create a new thread. This is a really really really interesting article also from grantland... definitely worth a click IMO. I'm also really curious to see if they release the results for all players and how the raps (specifically Rudy Gay) do.
Back to the point of the thread, it is really sad about the injury. The Raptor is a pro! I'm also kind of curious as to why they didn't keep it on the d.l. and just put someone else in the suit?
A friend of mine from my hometown is married to a guy who filled in for the Raptor for 3 games back in the late 90's (can't remember why). I mean, if they put a new guy in the suit, how many of us would know? And has it actually always been the same guy since the franchise started? I'd have assumed that there'd have been at least 2-3 raptors at this point.
But again, I've always been impressed by the raptor's work, and I wish him a speedy recovery. All of the outpouring of sympathy/sadness is totally justified.

What they got to say now? Nothing they can say now. Mobbin' on the low. Winnin' on the lowThe city embraced me, made me feel at home. The only difference [between Compton and Toronto] for me is the cold. -DeMarNo Where Near the South Side #WeTheNorth
I'm not sure if this is just news to me and that everyone else already knew but did you catch the part of the article where he said his inlaws live in toronto and his sister in law has seasons tickets? It might explain why he's always treated them with some sort of respect. Not sure if that is bad or good. Likely neither . Interesting.
