Breaking down the Toronto Raptors' pregame ritual during Kyle Lowry's introduction

Since the start of the season, the Toronto Raptors' have had a tradition of getting low during Kyle Lowry's starters introduction at Scotiabank Arena.

It's been a joy to watch Raptors' reserves turn the pregame intro tunnel into a mini yoga studio as players get down to stretch, do some pushups, hit some sit-ups or pretty much do whatever they please.

And with two new players into the mix - Marc Gasol and Jeremy Lin - they have to adjust to more than just offensive plays and defensive schemes.

Just ask Gasol, who looked rather confused during team intros in his home Raptors' debut.

He said that he wasn't clued in on the choreography of Lowry's intro, but he - and Lin - are clearly fast learners.

Sure Not Now

Chris Boucher's traditional pregame pushups were challenged tonight, as Lin put the Raptors' former two-way player to the test.

Also pictured is Danny Green's perfect crunches form while OG Anunoby bangs out some toe touches. And don't worry, Gasol got in on the action tonight too.

While Pascal Siakam has some sort of praying going on, Gasol is getting loose with a nice butterfly stretch - to which Lowry matches Gasol's stance and shows love to the team's newest big man catching on to the way things work.

It certainly did not take long for Gasol and Lin to fit in on the floor and it's good to see they're getting accustomed to the team's pregame antics quickly too.
