“For Toronto, they know that we’re on the Raptors, to come out after the season and show face, give them a show, give them something to look forward going into next year,” Powell said. “It was a lot of fun.” Raptors fans are thoroughly familiar with Powell, who emerged as an unlikely hero in each of the last two playoff runs. The 24-year-old is an explosive finisher at the basket, a physical defender, and has increasingly become a knockdown 3-point shooter. He’ll be in competition with Miles for the starting small forward spot.
“I’m always ready, that’s where I see myself, playing a bigger role is what I work for and I’m going to go into the off-season with that (mentality),” Powell told a couple of reporters. “Learning from DeMar (DeRozan) , hopefully being able to work out with some other of the best players in this league (like fellow UCLA alum and potential MVP Russell Westbrook, a frequent workout partner), really develop my mental focus and learn from them. That’s where I want to be. It’s definitely going to be a good summer for me.”
“They were subbing in P.J. (Tucker), he thought I was coming out, he was pulling my jersey,” Powell told ESPN before Sunday’s Game 4. “I hit his hand away and told him, ‘You don’t do that.’ I told him not to pull my jersey. We got into it a little bit. I told him not to pull my jersey. If he’s trying to get my attention, call my name, call my number, but don’t do that. Don’t pull my jersey like that.”
