Watch: Raptors 905 unveil 2016-17 G-League championship banner

And coach Jerry Stackhouse says some words to the crowd in advance of the 905’s home opener.

While the parent club continues to navigate its way uphill in the NBA, in just year two the Raptors 905 have already made it. They won the G-League title in 2016-17 and after giving out rings (both real and fake), they’ve now officially unveiled their new championship banner.

The above clip provides a nice view of the thing. And, as an added bonus, check out the inspiring words from head coach Jerry Stackhouse. It’s not quite a singing tribute, but it is definitely cool to see Stack behind the bench again in the G-League. I have no idea how this version of the 905 will do — the team basically lost every player from its title run (minus Bruno Caboclo, of course) — but if he believes in them, so do I.

Enjoy the 905 season, everyone.

(And remember: we’ll have our weekly Dial 905 column up tomorrow summarizing each week in the team’s 2017-18 run.)
