Pascal Siakam and DeMar DeRozan recently got down to talking on IG Live. What did we learn from the conversation between two Toronto Raptors greats?
Despite the lack of basketball, the power of the internet is still giving us an opportunity to watch basketball players interact with one another. In this case, we got to see Pascal Siakam and DeMar DeRozan – two Toronto Raptors greats – shoot the breeze on Instagram Live earlier this week.
Siakam and DeRozan played on some of the most successful Raptors teams in franchise history for the past few years before DeRozan was traded to the San Antonio Spurs almost two seasons ago. We all know how that trade went down and the effects of it – the Raptors winning their first-ever NBA title – but it was still interesting to see Siakam and DeRozan talk candidly about life before and after that moment.
While the conversation was fairly brief, we got everything from both players talking about how anxious they are to get back on the court – of course, the NBA is on an indefinite hiatus since the outbreak of COVID-19 – to both players acknowledging who the greatest player in franchise history is.
Like most conversations between NBA stars, there is always something to learn. You’ll always find an interesting anecdote or two to dissect and that’s where the fun begins. For us, we learned a few things from this conversation, but what were they?
