More from Toronto Raptors

Another matinée game on a Sunday, meaning it’s going to be a sloppy contest. These games are alright after those booze-filled Saturday nights, but when it’s a team as uninteresting as the Hornets you might as well rewatch an episode of One-Punch Man.

The Hornets can attempt to trick you into thinking they’re an exciting team, because they have Kemba Walker matching up against star point guards like Lowry. But that’s it.

Nic Batum straddles the border of being effective and washed, while Howard is a sad story of ‘What could have been’. Not to mention the litany of slow shooting big men they have.

Maybe this one would be worth watching, if Michael Jordan decided to make a comeback. I’ve always wondered how NBA players look playing against a 50-year-old man.
