If you’re confused, you should be. Ty Lawson is a near All-Star caliber point guard for the Denver Nuggets, with no known Toronto or Canadian connections, so him showing up to KS 107.5 Summer Jam in Denver on Friday night wearing a Raptors hat is at the very least worth a photo post here at RaptorBlog.
For the record, I don’t believe this means anything in terms of Lawson being interested in playing for Toronto or even being a Kevin Durant-type Raptors fan.
But when you consider that Nuggets players and fans are probably shaken by the team losing Executive of the Year Masai Ujiri (to the Raptors, of course) and Coach of the Year George Karl within a week of each other, perhaps the odd fashion choice is a bit of a statement to the organization and Nuggets ownership, or perhaps some sort of shout out of appreciation to Ujiri.
Regardless of Lawson’s intent here, the Nuggets (and Denver fans) can’t be happy about it given everything that’s gone on recently.
That’s all I got. You?
