Is it just us, or does it feels like forever since the NBA announced the season shutdown? Since then, the Toronto Raptors have been keeping busy with home workouts and video games, but one team member seems to be taking the time to study. That’s right, Norman Powell is brushing up on his sign language and his reasoning will melt your heart.\nIn a conference call on April 15, Powell said he’s excited to be able to better communicate with fans who may be hard of hearing.\n"That was pretty cool for me to be able to pick (sign language) back up, because there are a couple road games on the west coast and some fans are hard of hearing and they sign to me," Powell said, as quoted by the Canadian Press via CBC.\n"So just to be able to be able to interact with them is pretty cool.”\nYep, that's pretty much the most wholesome thing we've heard in a while.\nPowell, who studied sign language in college, said it’s been an interest of his for nearly his whole life.\n"I've always found it a beautiful language to learn and to be a part of, and I love that community. It's been a side hobby and interest of mine since I was a kid,” Powell added.\nView this post on Instagram 👀’s on the summer ahead. Get your NP gear.
