Raptors star Pascal Siakam chronicles return to Toronto ahead of 2021-22 NBA season

"The Six, we back!"

Those were the words of Toronto Raptors forward Pascal Siakam, who, in conjunction with Tier Zero and Red Bull, chronicled his return to Canada for his YouTube channel.

The video, titled "Back in the Six - Toronto Homecoming," follows Siakam's journey back to Toronto, marking his first time in the city since departing for the NBA Restart in June 2020.

"It feels crazy, to be honest," Siakam said during the video's opening, "when the pandemic started I was here, locked down for basically three months - before the bubble. So, once I left for Orlando, I haven't been back since then."

Once Siakam was settled, it was straight to work, as he takes you to the OVO Athletic Centre, where he exchanged pleasantries with Raptors staffers before rehabbing his surgically repaired left shoulder, taking over the facility's aux cord and doing some on-court work with newly-hired assistant coach Earl Watson.

The work was non-contact, but from it, you can get an idea of the progress that Siakam is making after undergoing surgery this past June.

Things close with Siakam getting on the subway, calling himself a "real Toronto man, taking the streetcar," before getting some shots up at a park court to "get, like, a real Toronto feel," and getting a few nice photos taken in the process.

With the Raptors set to play the 2021-22 season back home, it's clear that Siakam is happy to be back.
