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, we have had another week come and go for the Toronto Raptors. While they were in a funk for a bit, they seemed to have reversed the narrative given the wins over the Brooklyn Nets and Cleveland Cavaliers. This leads them into a fun and fantastic holiday outing, which will finally feature the Toronto Raptors playing on Christmas Day.

Of course, this isn’t a place that we like to discuss the basketball things necessarily… this is a place where we look for hilarity, hullabaloo, and chicanery all in one!

Of course, we couldn’t do so without you, the readers. So, if you spot anything funny, have commentary on mishaps, or just want to throw in a general shout out then please feel free to send a message or tag @RaptorsRapture or @HughesWithMe on Twitter, so we can be sure to give you a shout.

For updates on actual basketball things, be sure to check out the work from my diligent colleagues. They have featured trade possibilities, grades, and takeaways from the games this season. With trade season officially underway, the potential talks will surely heat up as the deadline gets closer in the new year.

Additionally, check out the new podcast from Raptors Rapture! If you are struggling to keep up with the written news, then queue up the podcast for your morning commute, workout session, or while you’re prepping dinner. It is available on most podcast outlets!

With that said, this week we’ll be covering the ring ceremony for Kawhi Leonard, an update on “Nick Nurse’s Nebulous Non-Calls,” and finally the Milwaukee Bucks and their pregame roughhousing inspired by wrestling.

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