With the Toronto Raptors being away from their families right now, distance can be tough, especially without seeing their kids. But, as a little surprise, the team has set up family photos in each player's room when they arrived in their "bubble."
The Raptors have arrived in Florida and players went full out decorating their rooms, giving them the "at-home" vibe. And the 6ix stars are getting a little emotional in thanking the team for leaving family photos in their rooms.
"It meant a lot, man. It was heartwarming. I miss my son but one day he'll understand what daddy does for a living."
For example, Terence Davis received a picture of him and his son and another of him with his whole family, according to TSN reporter Josh Lewenberg, and it was definitely emotional.
When asked on Monday, July 13, Kyle Lowry noted the Raptors organization loves to provide its players with these little touches. "It was cool, man. You guys have all been in our locker room, you've seen how we have our wall of all our families & friends... That's one thing the Raptors organization has always done. It was cool. Nice gesture," he said, via Lewenberg.
And even coach Nick Nurse understands the importance of family time, as he said he's allowing players to skip out on meetings to talk to their kids.
