The champions are already in the bubble to defend their crown. The Toronto Raptors have arrived in Florida, and they have done it with the screen-printed bus with a phrase that the whole world already knows Black Lives Matter.

Marc Gasol, Serge Ibaka and the rest of his colleagues want to defend the ring and send a message of solidarity with the African American people. « Silence is not an option, » is the motto that could be seen in the tweet with which Canadians have informed their fans.

A team that is willing to make a lot of noise, both on and off the court. So they will have to be counted on.
