There might not be an NBA team having more fun this season than the Toronto Raptors. Despite losing Kawhi Leonard in free agency, the defending champions have the third-best record in the league.
Toronto is currently on a 15-game winning streak. On Monday night, the Raptors received huge performances from Kyle Lowry, OG Anunoby and Pascal Siakam to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves at home.
Serge Ibaka went out of his way to give all his teammates gifts before the All-Star break. Since the Raptors will face the Brooklyn Nets tomorrow night, the veteran forward gave every teammate a camo/orange scarf to prepare them for the cold weather in New York. Ibaka and his teammate, OG Anunoby, got into a viral argument over their fashion senses earlier this month.
A photo of all the players wearing scarves on the team’s plane has gone viral this afternoon. It’s pretty clear that every player on the Raptors enjoyed the gift they received from Ibaka.

There’s no question that Toronto has the necessary chemistry to make a title run.
Ibaka didn’t play against Minnesota on Monday due to an illness. He’s questionable to play on Wednesday night against Brooklyn.
This season, Ibaka is averaging 15.9 points and 8.0 rebounds per game.
Toronto has played so well the past month that it might not even need Ibaka on the floor tomorrow to keep its winning streak alive. However, the Raptors are obviously much better when he’s in the lineup.
