Saturday, Nov. 21, 2020 will forever be a day of mixed emotions for fans of the Toronto Raptors.

In the early afternoon, it was a day of celebration when news broke that Fred VanVleet was returning on a new four-year contract. But that was followed less than 12 hours later by the disappointing reports that Serge Ibaka would be joining Kawhi Leonard in L.A. on the Clippers.

Ibaka became a fan favourite in Toronto over his 3.5 seasons on the Raptors and was an important piece during the team’s 2019 championship run. For that reason, fans on social media weren’t sad the ride with Ibaka was over… they were just glad it happened.
