Bebe: "They gave me a whole education & support so right now to see her son in the NBA, she's so proud. So I understand why she's crying"
Bebe: "My mom, shes so emotional. Shes crying a lot. She cries about everything but I understand why she is crying because they adopted me"
That story might not get 20 page views. Don't care. Fun.
well done, Royals.
I've had people tell me I look like Keanu Reeves. Watching him on Kimmel...His hair is WAY better (he has it all). My beard beats his tho!
Bebe's biggest NBA supporter: Atlanta's Al Horford. Said he was frustrated Hawks didn't sign him but Al would take him for dinner/to church
Seeing Tim Lincecum pitch in the World Series, regardless of the circumstances, for some reason makes me happy
Bebe said he spoke to his family over the phone after the game. They watched from Brazil. His proud mom/sister were crying tears of joy
Bebe post-game scrum is one of the most genuine/emotional I've been apart of. Spoke about his debut, nerves and his family's support
Bebe said his family watched in Brazil and his mom was crying tears of joy. Looked up at me weird when I said “Bebe on board"
Sittin in a long parking lot line...waitin to pull out of my spot. 4 cars pass. Jerks. Last one?...some solo girl occupied w/ stupid selfies
Leroy Hickerson: "I played 14 minutes, and my plus-minus was like 20." <3
Spoke to two dudes who exude joy tonight. A nice antidote to the day's events.
Night of rest for vets Lou Williams & Chuck Hayes. Casey wanted to give Cherry and Stiemsma some run as team prepares to decide on 15th-man
'Topes win. 92-85.
James Johnson showing some encouraging leadership qualities tonight. Gave Bebe a pre-game pep talk, now directing Bruno on D. Good sign
:28.4 seconds left ... Raps are gonna win. Survive the scare. Sloppy game (26 turnovers! ....... 33 points to Maccabi off those 26 TO's)
Bebe could be the Brazilian Anderson Varejao. Oh wait...
Bebe puts back a Bruno miss; Boy Bands Rule!
You can’t stop Bebe, you can only hope to contain him.
Bebe dominating. Raptors up five. (Didn’t expect to write that)
Sweet pass from James Johnson finds Bebe for the wide-open dunk. He blocked his 3rd shot of the game moments earlier. 84-83 Raps, 1:55 left
Hickerson air-balls it. He's so YOLO it huts.
Will Cherry salvages his night with a huge three, then Bruno and Bebe get a double block, but Haifa regains lead. Bebe dunk follows.
WILL CHERRY REDEMPTION THREE-POINTER
Fairly obvious observation: Greivis Vasquez doesn't seem enthused by the idea of losing to Maccabi Haifa. He has 5 of Raps' 7 pts in the 4th
Swaggy V not going to let the Raptors lose this one.
Hickerson just finished an alley-oop and picked up a tech celebrating. I think I love this cat.
the crowd is buzzing right now for Maccabi Haifa. up 4 on TOR with 3:49 to go
Rene Rougeau’s pass looked like it was thrown by a Rougeau Brother
Bruno back in, Bebe also set to re-enter. Raptors trail by 5 with 5:10 left to play
Never mind, Bruno’s coming in to rally the Raptors.
Leroy Hickerson is now taunting the Raptors' bench.
And foul No. 44 is Cherry fouling some little-ish guy shooting a 3-pointer. I (heart) pre-season basketball
Raptor field goals: 27. Raptor assists: 12. Raptor turnovers: 24.
Will Cherry has not helped his cause much tonight.
11-0 Maccabi run to begin the 4thQ and, just like that, we're tied up at 72
Another Maccabi upset in making? Haifa ties game at 72 vs. Raptors. Think fans wanting to see Bruno/Bebe will be out of luck, given score
It's 72-72. I don't think Will Cherry will be making this team.
Dude has been chirping the media here for a while. He's not going to like it when @smithraps eviscerates him.
Greg Stiemsma is taking the 18 footer without hesitation.
Stiemsma jumper. Drink.
Bebe trying to stay warm during timeouts in case he comes back in, doing a variety of CoreX-type exercises.
Fine, I’ll just tell Terrence after the game that the fans are demanding a full, no doubt 360 layup next time.
Vince used to do 360 layups, Ross can do them as well, but didn’t do the full 360 on that one.
Terrence Ross does a 180 layup. Not sure we’ve seen that since the Vince Carter days.
Terrence Ross with a 360 lay-up. Best non-Bebe thing about this game.
On point jersey, although it should really say "Graham." http://t.co/szLGmgQY6G
Drake 416 Raptors jerseys are officially a thing.
Half ends w/ the Raptors on top 47-37. Not surprisingly they've outscored Maccabi 32-14 in the paint, shooting 1/12 from 3, 18/22 inside arc
This game is only 24 minutes from being over. That’s a good thing. Raptors lead 47-37 at the half.
Terrence Ross gets bailed out trying to do And 1 Mixtape moves. Why Terrence, why even try that? Still lots to learn.
Greg Stiemsma just threw a behind-the-back pass to Bebe Nogueira. If that doesn't say NBA pre-season, I don't know what does
2 defensive possessions, 2 Bebe blocks. Glimpse of the rim protector he could become.
Greg Stiemsma just threw a behind-the-back pass to Bebe. I'm sorry for telling everyone to not watch this game.
Casey did say Bebe has great hands and rolls well so maybe one day they’ll implement that into offence. Better hands than JV for sure.
Bebe block and a crafty lay-up/three-point play opportunity for Greivis Vasquez on the other end. Raptors largest lead, 45-31
Bebe swat to go with his steal. He wastes some effort putting up hands for ball though too often. Nobody is giving it to him.
