Internet tough guys are pathetic, especially when the argument for which they’re willing to so idiotically stand is unfounded. Toronto Raptors reserve Lou Williams seems to agree with us. After a Toronto Raptors “fan” chastised the play of Amir Johnson on Instagram, the high-scoring guard came to his teammate’s with a firm rebuke. Warning: NSFW language coming after the jump.

Video: Raptors’ James Johnson Makes Standing Backflip Look Easy

James Johnson

We might be able to do a somersault, and highly doubt we can perform an acceptable cartwheel. We’re also a man of relatively normal physical proportions. James Johnson isn’t. The Toronto Raptors forward stands 6-9 and 250 pounds, making us all the more ashamed that he can easily pull-off a standing backflip. Read More »

Poor Justin Bieber just can’t seem to get out of his own way. While tweeting in support of Kyle Lowry’s bid for All-Star starter, the Canadian megastar failed to include the proper hashtag that makes a vote actually count – leaving the Toronto Raptors’ point guard out of approximately 31,000 extra tallies.

Video: DeMar DeRozan Scores Team-High 20 Points After 21-Game Absence

DeMar DeRozan

If DeMar DeRozan had any rust in his game after being sidelined from action since Nov. 28, he certainly didn’t show it during his return to the court on Wednesday night. After missing only a combined 11 games in his previous five seasons, the All-Star guard was out for the previous 21 games due to a torn tendon in his left groin. During his injury leave, the Raptors went 12-9 and held onto their Atlantic Division. Read More »

Not only have those developments drastically altered the MVP race, but they’re influencing All-Star voting, too.

Dwane Casey Says He’ll Fight Coaches If Kyle Lowry Isn’t Voted All-Star Reserve

Dwane Casey, Kyle Lowry

Kyle Lowry deserves to be a starter in February’s All-Star game. But the relative anonymity of the Toronto Raptors point guard compared to counterparts like John Wall, Dwyane Wade, and Kyrie Irving trumps on-court play when it comes to starting spots for the mid-season classic.
