Toronto Raptors rookies Malachi Flynn and Freddie Gillespie were forced to perform Miley Cyrus’s hit song “Party in the USA” in front of the whole team.
Kyle Lowry came out with a microphone to introduce the two like a proper MC. He then handed them both the lyrics to the song and got the music cued up. The rest is just excellent:
Just gonna drop this here to make sure you guys have a blessed Friday.
Enjoy 😂 pic.twitter.com/K8q2leusyH

Many of the Raptors were egging them on, with De’Andre Bembry even saying they had to make sure they “hit those high notes.” It was also nice of Chris Boucher to mop the floor up before they started dancing so they would not trip.
Pascal Siakam and Stanley Johnson really started getting into it when the chorus came on, and Lowry looked so proud when he brought the whole team in for the huddle.
While Flynn was more content just singing the song, Gillespie was getting right into the song and busting out some fantastic dance moves.
