The Raptors are playing some decent basketball as of late, winning 8 of their last 10 games. Don’t look now but if they keep up the pace they may even have an outside shot at making the playoffs and climb out of the basement of the Eastern Conference. It could end being one of the biggest turnaround’s in recent NBA history. Most of that recent win streak has been without their franchise player Andrea Bargnani. Not good news for the big fella, who is likened to a poor man’s Dirk Nowitzki. Very poor man’s Dirk I should say.
Peep this hilarious video of Amir Johnson getting away with as obvious a double-dribble as you can imagine, and then smiling about it all the way back down the floor with teammates. Good thing they beat the Blazers handily and didn’t win by say….two points or something.
