Powell Forgot He's Not A Raptor Anymore During Sunday's Game & It Was So Sad (VIDEO)
If you thought Norman Powell playing against Toronto was unusual, you're not alone — it seems like he felt the same way.
Playing against the Raptors just a few days after he was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers, Stormin' Norman showed that he's not quite used to his new team after accidentally lining up on Toronto's side of the court.

Powell quickly realized his mistake and headed back to the Trail Blazers' side, prompting a "chuckle" around the court, according to The Athletic.
The outlet says that Powell "awkwardly" navigated the handshakes and routines from his new team as he got introduced as a starter before the game, but his former teammates still greeted him with hugs.
Once the game started, though, Norm showed that he's comfortable in his new colours, helping his team defeat the Raptors with a final score of 122-117.
