"How do you thank an entire fanbase? An entire organization? An entire city?" Powell begins, before detailing the emotional moments post-trade.
He says it was a shock to be traded, recounting that "it was straight-up waterworks. I started breaking down crying … all the memories that I’d been holding back for those last couple of days, they came rushing back in."
Powell spends most of the letter shouting out his teammates — DeRozen, VanVleet, and Lowry each have sections dedicated to them — but he also says he'll never forget Toronto and the championship he helped win. The city will miss you too, Norm! ❤️
