December 2nd Raptors @ Hawks

Naturally, this meeting is notable because it marks DeMarre Carroll’s return to Atlanta. How will the crowd react, by booing or cheering? Will the Raptors put him on Kyle Korver? Will Toronto’s new look team be a title contender in the Eastern Conference? This is also an important game because it highlights the return of my infamous “Drake-cap”. This means that during the game recap I make as many references to Drake lyrics as humanly possible. I can already feel the anticipation growing. Came up, that’s all me, stay true, that’s all me. You get the idea. I apologize in advance, but I will die on this hill. “Drake-cap” forever.

December 4th Lakers @ Hawks

Kobe Bryant comes to Phillips Arena for quite possibly the final time in his career. He may be over the hill, but if you’ve never seen him play it’s worth buying a ticket for one more viewing of a future hall of famer.
