The Toronto Raptors have once again been dealt a significant blow to their home court advantage. While it’s not quite playing in Tampa Bay, Ontario has prohibited fans from attending Raptors games at Scotiabank Arena. No matter how much fake fan noise you pump into the building, it’s still an empty building.
Luckily, the Raptors have one fan that’s still allowed to attend games. In fact, it may be their biggest fan of all… the Raptor!
The Raptors mascot is known to be one of the best in the league. During Tuesday evening’s game against the Phoenix Suns, the Raptor proved why when he successfully got into the head of Suns star Devin Booker.
Booker appeared to be upset about something the Raptor was doing off screen, as he threw his hands up as though mimicking a gesture that annoyed him. The refs subsequently sent the Raptor off to kneel out of Booker’s line of sight.
It didn’t take long for Raps fans to jump on Twitter and offer their thoughts on the situation.
