Toronto Raptors Newest Player Is Already Showing Off His 6ix Slang

Anyone new to the 6ix is likely to encounter a few words that they've never heard before, but learning Toronto slang is a necessary right of passage, especially if you're the Raptors' newest rookie.

Scottie Barnes, the team's fourth overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, showed off his Toronto fluency in a video posted to Twitter on Wednesday, and he sounds like a GTA native already.

During the brief clip, Barnes showed off his ability to pronounce "Toronno" with an impressive Torontonian accent before busting a few more obscure phrases such "wagwan" and "nize."

"Yo mans is talking crazy, I told him to nize that fam," the Raptor can be heard spitting out like a natural.

With the recent exit of Kyle Lowry still fresh in everyone's mind, it's heartwarming to see the newest addition to the team picking up where he left off.
