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.)
