Welcome back to another edition of Trash-talk Toronto Raptors! Here we are going to talk about everything that happened with the Toronto Raptors except… basketball.

Well, folks, the Toronto Raptors’ promising start finally succumbed to an ugly 0-3  losing streak, which just ended with a one-point win over the lowly Chicago Bulls. Ironically, the team had a recuperated Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka, but the time off seems to have left the team at odds offensively. What an unfortunate time for Pascal Siakam to go on a cold streak.

But, of course, this isn’t a place to discuss the basketball moments! But, to read more actually about basketball, my colleagues have done their due diligence by giving grades, deducing takeaways, and have even started to consider how the Toronto Raptors should handle the trade deadline.

With over a quarter of the season gone for the Raptors, we honestly still aren’t sure of what to think about the team, given the recent falling back to Earth. However, they (and other folks around the NBA) have surely helped keep the humor alive for us and it should only increase as the season goes on.

That said, we want you, the reader, to feel involved in this column. If you spot any hilarity or on-court gaffes, then please feel free to tag either @RaptorsRapture or @HughesWithMe on Twitter, so you can get a shout out in the next column!

This week we are going to cover Kawhi Leonard finally receiving his ring, Kyle Lowry wanting to fight a random Philly fan, and James Harden and the Rockets with an untimely missed dunk that was actually not a missed dunk, but it didn’t really matter to the referees.

Without further ado, onto this week’s edition of Trash-talk!
