NBA Social Sound Off Sept. 13th – 19th – Toronto Raptors Edition


The Toronto Raptors were busy on social media this week. Here are the week’s best social media snaps:

Bruno For Three!

Bruno Caboclo shared this video on his Twitter account and Instagram page showing him practicing at the Raptors current practice facility in the Air Canada Centre. The caption on the photo said ‘Buckets!!! O Trem Bala ta vindo’. If you were at a Raptors game at the ACC last season you would be familiar with fans chanting ‘BRRUUNNOOO’. It looks like the young rookie is getting ready for more minutes this season. DeMar DeRozan also shared a post of his workout at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto this week;

Patterson and Ross Strike A Pose

Patrick Patterson and Terrence Ross strutted their stuff on a red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival this week. Patterson was a correspondent for the Canadian TV Broadcaster CBC while Ross enjoyed the magic of tinsel town in the big smoke.

Move Over Ryan Seacrest

Could Patrick Patterson be setting himself up from moving to the hardcourt to the red carpet? As mentioned previously Patterson was a correspondent for a Canadian broadcaster this week for the Toronto International Film Festival. Patterson participated in a Q & A on twitter called #AskPat and answered questions about his favorite movies, actors etc. It seems the Raptors player has a soft spot for a classic Michael Jordan flick:

"Hey ’90s babies — our #TIFF15 correspondent @pdpatt loves Space Jam! What are your top b-ball flicks? @Raptors #RTZ— CBC Toronto (@CBCToronto) September 15, 2015"

Kyle Lowry’s Sleep Remedy

Patterson will not have to watch his back for his current entertainment correspondent job from Kyle Lowry. The 29-year-old shared his method of falling asleep on twitter recently. Lowry said he watches movies to help him fall asleep and his movie de jour was none other than a not so classic Will Smith film.

Too Much Greatness

Have you recovered from looking at this post by Magic Johnson yet? The 2002 Basketball Hall of Fame Inductee shared this picture on his Instagram with the legendary Michael Jordan. Johnson captured the photo ‘I had so much fun hanging out with my Dream Team teammate and the greatest basketball player that’s ever played, Michael Jordan!’. Johnson and Jordan are constantly part of the Greatest Of All Time (GOAT) debate and this photo sparked a flurry of comment arguing who was the best to ever play the game. Once you get over the initial shock of all that greatness in one photo, reading the comments are the next best part. One used mentioned their sibling saying ‘NEVER show dad this caption…he would die for sure!!!.

The Wright Stuff

The Raptors drafted the University of Utah guard Delon Wright to the team this year. You may remember the viral video that was posted on celebrity gossip site TMZ of his family celebrating after he was drafted. The video showed the entire family screaming and jumping around. Wright shared an adorable photo of his nephew congratulating his uncle after the celebration in this #TBT post.
