Welcome back to another very special edition of Trash-talk Toronto Raptors! Here we will discuss everything that happened this week except… basketball.

The Toronto Raptors are seemingly back on track. After going nearly a month without consecutive wins, they have finally put together a small winning streak that culminated with a nail biter on Martin Luther King Jr. Day against the Atlanta Hawks.

It was a reunion of sorts by having Vince Carter facing the Raptors again. With only two more matchups against the Hawks this season, it will be the final time Carter faces off against the Raptors in his up-and-down yet somehow illustrious career.

Of course, this isn’t a place to discuss basketball. Instead, it’s a place to discuss humor, hilariousness, and hullaballoo throughout the week. Of course, we couldn’t do this without you, the readers. So, if you spot any funny news please send us a tip on Twitter at either @HughesWithMe or @RaptorsRapture.

To be perfectly honest, the Toronto Raptors were quite moderate this week in terms of humor. We certainly missed Rondae Hollis-Jefferson contemplating how we have given life to dinosaurs. To that end, we’re going to quickly discuss Kyle Lowry giving Norm Powell everything he’s got in terms of celebrating, an update of Nick Nurse’s challenges, and Kyrie Irving making some very Kyrie Irving comments.

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