Our man Faizal Khamisa posted this yesterday and I forgot to pass it along. The Toronto Raptors wrapped up a practice session in Burnaby not only with some yoga yesterday, but also with a good game of Kemari/Pele/kick-ups. As it turns out, Lucas Nogueira has quite the ball control.

All the TFC games the guys are always snapping from are clearly paying off. That, or Nogueira spending the last few weeks glued to Flamenco games between workouts.

    Really? It’s desperate click bait? It’s one of 4 posts up on the site today. It’s not as if we’re starving for content. There is also absolutely no claim it’s “reporting,” we’re just passing it along. It was getting passed around on social a lot, so I thought people might enjoy it. Apologies for sharing something that was mildly entertaining. “LOL”

      Obviously you have a problem. If you’re not happy with your day or life why take your shit out here. Go somewhere else and be an ass. You’re not welcome here.

      I mean, http://www.raptorsrepublic.com/author/blake/, I’ve been doing plenty of that, too. But sure, I’m a joke. I get to write about basketball for a living, I’m fine with someone who doesn’t know your/you’re and who is this angry about a video being posted not liking me. Blessings, coraga.

    Being a Raptors fan here on RR is a lot about having fun and enjoying whatever goes on with the team. I enjoyed this tidbit. If it’s not for you maybe you should move on.

    Thanks for this! As an avid soccer van as well, its neat to see the carry over between sports 🙂

    I also agree with Mexiballer, it’s fun seeing the other side of the team, and the bonding that happens behind the season.
