Pascal Siakam on being the 1st option in the Raptors’ offense: “It’s a learning experience for me”

Pascal Siakam had an incredible season before the basketball suspension on March, due to the coronavirus.

The forward from Cameroon had a career year with the Toronto Raptors as he became the first option in their offense, after the departure of Kawhi Leonard.

“I love it. I love going through the struggles — and obviously you want to win and be the best you can — but I really appreciate just being out there on the floor knowing that I struggle, knowing that I’m gonna miss a lot of shots, knowing that I’m gonna make mistakes and also knowing that I’m gonna work really hard to rectify those mistakes and be the best player that I can be,” Siakam said on an interview with Mike Ganter of the Toronto Sun.

Over 53 games until March, Siakam averaged a career-high 23.6 points along with 7.5 rebounds and 3.6 assists per 35.5 minutes per contest.

Furthermore, he shot almost 36% from the three-point line, while the Toronto Raptors had +8.7 per 100 possessions, when he was on the floor.

Siakam can easily become the suprise star of the NBA restart having the ability to change the course of game on both sides of the floor.

The Raptors are more than lucky to have him available in Orlando.
