The Toronto Raptors are a well-oiled basketball machine. It wasn’t just Kyle Lowry or Kawhi Leonard who was at the forefront of the Toronto Raptors NBA Championship win this year - it was the whole unit. The Raptors came together to demolish their competition, rip the trophy from the Warriors and shut all those haters up. What makes it even more heartwarming is the fact that even with the pressure of the playoffs off their shoulders, the boys are still showing up for each other.
It was Danny Green's birthday on Saturday and to celebrate the occasion, his teammates and coaches posted some hilarious video tributes on social media. Pascal Siakam, OG Anunoby, Jordan Lloyd, Norman Powell, and Phil Handy all wished the player a happy birthday in their own loving way, proving once again that the Raptors bromance is still going strong.
All the videos are touching in their own way, but Anunoby’s message, in particular, is outrageous. In the video, the player is seen nonchalantly wishing Green a happy birthday all while forgetting how old he is turning and mentioning the fact that his special day is also coming up.

Green's latest comments have been raising eyebrows over the last few days. During a segment on Green's podcast called Inside The Green Room, the player was asked whether or not the current NBA champions would accept an invitation to the White House.
"I just don't think that we accept," Green said according to Yahoo Sports. "And I try to respect everybody in every field that they do regardless of how crazy things are. But he makes it really hard. He makes it very, very tough to respect how he goes about things and does things. To put it politely, I think it's a hard no."
The Raptors shooting guard also dished about the possibility of Kawhi Leonard staying with Toronto at an event on Saturday. “I don’t know the percentage [of chance that he stays],” Green said at Hoops Talk, an event that brings basketball specials and fans together. “But I think it’s a higher percentage for him to be here than to leave.”
