Raptors’ Patrick McCaw reacts to haters after his 3-peat
Toronto Raptors guard Patrick McCaw recently gained legendary status after winning the NBA title — his third straight — with the Toronto Raptors on Thursday night. However, the 23-year-old barely figured in the team’s rotation throughout the season, which is something his haters have repeatedly pointed out on social media.
McCaw could simply care less, and his non-verbal message to his haters says it all.

McCaw even posted a video of himself on his Instagram, further illustrating his utter disregard for all the hate being thrown towards his direction.
After winning two consecutive titles with the Golden State over the past two seasons, McCaw had a bit of a weird summer that pretty much cost him half of the season. Prior to the start of this season, the former second-round pick no longer saw his future with the Warriors, and practically forced his way out of the team.
The Cleveland Cavaliers saved the day for him by signing him as a free agent, and then eventually waving him a few days later. Following this rather bizarre turn of events, McCaw struck a deal with the Raptors, where he would play a total of 27 regular season games, averaging just 2.7 points, 1.7 rebounds, 1.0 assists, and 0.8 steals in 13.2 minutes per contest.
It was more of the same for McCaw throughout the playoffs, with the 6-foot-7 shooting guard taking the court for a total of just 12 minutes in the entire Finals series against the Warriors.
Nevertheless, by somehow achieving an elusive three-peat, McCaw has indeed made his mark in the history books, and has entered an elite company together with other greats who have achieved a similar feat.
