Know Your Raptors: Who has the freshest fade?

Norm Powell on Know Your Raptors

Since 2012, this time of year has marked not only the start of the NBA’s regular season but also the drop of a new season of Sportsnet’s Know Your Raptors. Returning for it’s fifth season, Know Your Raptors let’s catch a glimpse of their personalities away from the court and get to know a fresh side of your favourite players.
