The Raptors Surprised VanVleet In The Best Way After He Broke Records Last Night (VIDEO)
The Raptors showed up for Fred VanVleet in a big way on Tuesday night after he broke franchise records with a mindblowing 54 points.
VanVleet hit 11 three-pointers in Tuesday's game against the Orlando Magic, breaking records for most points scored by a single player and most points scored by an undrafted NBA player in one game. His teammates pulled off the best surprise to congratulate him.
As VanVleet enters the locker room, the rest of the team can be seen hiding out of sight and jumping out to surprise him.
Point guard Kyle Lowry gives a small speech, calling VanVleet his "little brother" in the most wholesome embrace.
During the post-game media scrum, Lowry spends even more time gushing about VanVleet.
"You can't put into words the amount of work that went into this," Lowry told reporters, "I was more hyped than he was."
Even past teammates praised him, including DeMar DeRozan and Danny Green. DeRozan took to Twitter to simultaneously hype up Fred and take a shot at Kyle.
"Congrats to my brotha Freddy V! Kyle old ass couldn’t do it. Glad you did champ! Been telling you," he tweeted.
And of course, Fred VanVleet's adorable children, a.k.a. his biggest fans, were cheering him on too.
VanVleet's partner Shontai Neal posted an Instagram Story of their little boy doing a celebratory dance for dad.
You've given us yet another reason to be proud, Freddy!
