PHOTOS: A tour inside the BioSteel Centre, the Raptors’ new practice facility

The Toronto Raptors unveiled their brand new, state-of-the-art (drink!) practice facility on Wednesday, a massive, 68,000-square foot building that general manager Masai Ujiri repeatedly referred to as the team’s new home.

We’ll have more on the details of the facility and what it means for the Raptors later on. For now, here are some bad iPhone 4S photos of the grand tour. Don’t like these and my grainy D-League photos? Then it’s a good time to remind you that you can support Raptors Republic at our Patreon page. In the meantime, I’ve embedded a few pics from better photogs, or at least journos with better cell phones.

Outside of the building, which is located at 30 British Columbia Dr. (right beside Medieval Times) on the old Exhibition grounds.

The War Room, a top-of-the-line, IBM-powered “insight centre” for data collection and analysis, complete with interactive touch screens and a ton of one-touch capability (I geeked out so hard).
