In four seasons in Toronto, there’s no doubt that Serge Ibaka meant a lot to the Raptors. Today, Ibaka expressed that the Raptors meant a lot to him also.
While the 31-year-old is joining the Los Angeles Clippers, a piece of his heart will remain in Canada.
“How to explain what Toronto, Canada, and the Raptors mean to me? I was welcomed to a new country and a new team more than three years ago and I felt at home from day one,” Ibaka said in a heartfelt message posted to social media.
“I feel really blessed to have played for this city, these fans, and this organization. The love I have received during this journey I will never forget. I want to thank Larry Tanenbaum and MLSE and the whole Toronto Raptors organization. It is really a great organization that takes care of its players and I’m thankful that I became an NBA Champion with them.
“I’ve had great teammates, front office and staff next to me. And of course, a fan base that is second to none. So thank you Toronto. Thank you, Canada. And thank you Raptors.
“I am one of yours forever. #wethenorth”
