Favourite All-Time Raptor:
Kyle Lowry

A 16-year-old high school junior who has great passion for writing and basketball, specifically the Raptors of course. After writing dozens of unorthodox basketball blogs online for two years, there was a growing desire within me to write more professionally about the Raptors. Luckily, I stumbled upon the opportunity to write here!

Kyle Lowry

I’m a 21 year old business student at Wilfrid Laurier University combining two passions of writing and basketball. I couldn’t make it to the NBA so now I write about it instead.

Favourite All-Time Raptor:
Kawhi Leonard

A Queen’s University student with a passion for writing. When it comes to the Raptors and basketball in general, I’m a huge fan. In fact, when the Raptors lost to Brooklyn in 2014, nobody cried harder than me. Wait… Maybe I don’t want to admit that. Oh well.

The finest thing out of Cambridge since Cabbie and Blake Murphy. Laurier Golden Hawk for life. On the journey of hitting 40 countries before I turn 40, while I’m there might as well check out a few games.

Favourite All-Time Raptor: 
Kyle Lowry

I am 34 years old of Sri Lankan descent; born in Winnipeg but moved to Toronto at an early age and have been raised here basically my whole life. I mention all of this because my perspective on all things in the world comes from a unique set of circumstances and experiences which I believe make me a desirable candidate! My love for the Raptors began in 95 and has not waned through the lean years we have experienced! I have always been one to share my thoughts or opinions on the various sports I follow.

Favourite All-Time Raptors:
Chris Bosh (then)
The Bay St Bulldog…K-Low aka the Kid from North Philly…Kyle Lowry (forever and always)

Alex is currently completing his Master’s in Sport Psychology at the University of Windsor. Born and raised in The Bahamas, his NBA allegiance became split between the Lakers and the Raptors when relocating to Toronto. Over the years, his fanaticism and passion for the Raptors has only been further cemented. He plans to get his PhD and work as a sport psychologist with professional sport teams…hopefully with the Raptors one day being one of them.

I love writing about everything other than what happens on the court. If you like rumours, deep dives and debating who the best dressed Raptor of all-time is (it’s Serge) then you should check out my stuff.
