    Remember, the exhibition season ends in April.

  • Hello Larry

    My Raptors play on Thursday against the Bulls looking forward to that. Wednesday is the best night because of all of the games you can catch on League Pass. Looking forward to Lonzo Ball’s debut on Thursday as well if he plays in that game though dude can’t stay healthy so far from what I’ve seen.
