Social media continues to give fans an inside look at their favourite players. At Daily Hive, we have already looked at players’ social media presence on the Toronto Maple Leafs, so now it is time to look at another Toronto-based team, the Toronto Raptors. They also have some great players who utilize social media to the fullest.

Here is a list of those players who are active on social media and who has the best social media game on the team.

Stanley Johnson’s profile picture of Napoleon Dynamite is fantastic. The “Stanimal” is also a great nickname for his Instagram handle.

Aron Baynes made a pretty good first impression with a picture of him surrounded by Raptors. Although not directly connected with him, the Baynes Fan Club is an absolute must-follow on Twitter.

TD has a variety of posts on his account. He posts plenty of action shots, but he also took part in Operation Coat on Instagram. That program helped to provide 500,000 coats to children in need in Mississippi.

“Slim Duck” Chris Boucher has not only increased his production on the court, but his off-court social media posts have also gotten better.

7. Yuta Watanabe

Yuta Watanabe is very famous in his native Japan, and for good reason. He put out a fantastic post showing his fans how social distancing works, using himself as the measuring stick.

6. DeAndre Bembry

DeAndre Bembry’s account name of “fearthefro” is terrific. Also, he may have the best fashion sense on the entire team right now.

5. Norman Powell

Norm has been doing many collaborations with different brands such as LG, And 1, and Boss. He also caught a giant fish that may or may not be photoshopped during his time in the Florida bubble, which is probably his best post.

“Steady Freddy” has lived up to his nickname while with the Raptors. His presence is calming to the team and his variety of posts, including his family, training, cars, and fashion, place him high on this list.

OG’s recent collaboration with Axe may be one of the most incredible athlete-company partnerships of all time. Also, his scarf feud with former Raptors teammate Serge Ibaka provided some excellent content for his feed.

The GROAT (Greatest Raptor of All-Time) has some great posts, including him marching with Tobias Harris of the Philadelphia 76ers for Black Lives Matter. He also put out a heartfelt message to longtime friend and former Toronto Raptors All-Star DeMar DeRozan on his birthday.

Arguably the best player on the current Raptors team is also the best when it comes to social media. Pascal Siakam’s crossover ad with Red Bull, along with his excellent fashion sense pre-game, vault him to the top of this list.
