Pascal Siakam was an All NBA 2nd team baller last season and prior to that he had his coming out party during the 2019 NBA Finals where he helped lead the Toronto Raptors to the first NBA title in franchise history over the injury-riddled Golden State Warriors Dynasty.
During the physically and mentally taxing 2020 Bubble season, Siakam regressed a bit as Toronto lost in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semis.
Right after, he headed to LA and has been working out with acclaimed trainer Rico Hines to reset his game and prepare for this season.
Pascal hooked up with Red Bull Media House to chronicle the offseason and launch his own YouTube channel, with a mini-series as the first unveiling.
Episode 1 launched on December 16th, giving his fans an unfiltered look at basketball, COVID life, family, etc. An additional episode followed on Dec. 17 and you have time to catch the third episode on December 22.
The versatile power forward Siakam is very honest about his performance in the Disney Bubble, which caused his season field goal percentage to drop below 50 percent (45.3%) for the first time in his four-year career. However, at just 26-years-old, versatile power forward averaged career highs in points per game (22.9 ppg) free throw percentage (.792) rebounds ( 7.5) and assists (3.5).
Raptors fans are expecting another All-Star caliber season from the rising star.
