Lukas Weese - Oct 1, 2020

Lakers head coach Frank Vogel called a timeout to gather his team. Coming out of that pause, the Lakers became the Goliath, thanks to unlikely players. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope converted two critical three-pointers. Anthony Davis made a driving layup, thanks to an assist from Rajon Rondo. Even Alex Caruso, the dynamic undrafted guard, made a three-pointer late in the first quarter, giving the Lakers their first lead of the game.

Toronto Raptors
Lukas Weese - Jun 18, 2019

TORONTO– It was supposed to be a day of celebration. The Toronto Raptors were coming home to party with their fans, in the franchise’s inaugural championship parade.

Toronto Raptors
Lukas Weese - Jun 14, 2019

The Toronto Raptors are the 2018-19 NBA Champions. A phrase that many deemed impossible. A reality that most thought would be unattainable.

Lukas Weese - May 27, 2019

It was a sunny Sunday morning. Blue skies, birds chirping. Summer was in the air. There was an energy felt inside of me as I poured my morning coffee to start the day. I was wearing my bright red Toronto Raptors “We The North” T-shirt. In May. Seems a little exaggerated for this time of […]
