If you haven’t been following the bromance between Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet, you better start because these two guys are giving Lowry and DeRozan a run for their money in friendship goals. Siakam gushed in a new interview that VanVleet is like a brother to him as the two continue to pave a name for themselves as one of the NBA’s hottest new duos. It's like Christmas came early this year and gave us the perfect replacement for Kawhi.

“He’s like my brother. I can literally talk to Fred about anything. I always feel we came in the same draft, but I always feel like he has more experience than me, I’ll always ask him different things even business-wise or whatever questions in real life that I have,” Siakam said while gushing about his bond with his long-time teammate.

As for their on-court dynamic, well Spicy P had plenty to say about that as well.

“On the court, it's easy I can just ask him about whatever he sees on the floor, and I think our chemistry from the 905 to summertime to all the years we’ve been together, it just feels natural and will always have that connection.”

VanVleet talked briefly about the two’s relationship during the same interview, and he had nothing but nothing beautiful things to say about his partner.

“We’ve had a lot of big games together; its just fun, especially knowing him for as long as I’ve known him. He’s taken a superstar trajectory, and it's just been fun to be there alongside him.”

Nick Nurse also opened up about what he feels makes the two so unique together.

“Well, I think it's great, and I think it is important. It was one of those things that just happened organically they just came in together, summer league, together, 905 together, 905 playoffs together, 905 champions together," Nurse said about the dynamic pairing.

“Now they first are thrust into a primary role because of a couple of injuries…they both have high IQ’s and they feed off each other very well,” he added.
