A lot can go wrong in a playoff series and there’s no guarantee you’ll make it to the finals.
But if there’s one thing the Raptors can do right now, it’s prepare for what can be an unanticipated loss with Dsi logistics.
It’s a little like being on a vacation.
It’s not as exciting as it looks on the outside, but it is much more rewarding, especially when you get to go out on the road with your family and you get a chance to play basketball with your friends and watch a few games.
The Raptors were supposed to play a game against the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday night at Air Canada Centre.
DSI, the Raptors’ logistics company, announced that they couldn’t make it, and the team had to leave early.
There were only about 300 seats available, and Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri said he’d be “shocked” if he was able to attend the game.
He said he was in Toronto, and didn’t think he’d have a problem.
The team was flying to Washington, D.C., to try to make the playoffs, but Ujir was told he’d likely be the only one who would be able to see the game and that he would need to bring his family.
When he arrived in Washington, Ujirek went to the team’s hotel to meet his wife, and was met by a woman who said, “Sorry, we can’t take you.”
The next thing he knew, he was sitting in his car in a hotel parking lot, looking at his family on the other side of the city.
“We were all thinking, ‘What the hell is going on?'”
Ujiro told ESPN.
“We’re just really, really, very grateful to the DSI team.
I mean, we were all upset and hurt.”
Ujirekh went back to his hotel room and waited for his wife to return, and when she did, he told her that the Raptors couldn’t play, but he would bring his wife and kids.
“It was really difficult,” Ujimo said.
“I mean, they were in shock.
They didn’t even know what the hell happened.”
Ujimi called his wife a couple of times before she came back.
“I was just so devastated.
I just cried and said, ‘Why are you crying?’
She was like, ‘I was crying when we got to the hotel.
I thought we’d lost to the Wizards.'”
Ujimiro said he got in his wife’s car and drove to a nearby hotel to pick her up, but she couldn’t find him.
“She said, I need to go to my boyfriend’s house,” he said.
“When I got to her place, I realized she wasn’t going to be there, so I called DSI and they told me she was at her boyfriend’s place and she couldn.
I said, how are you?
And she was like ‘I’m in the airport and I just called Dsi and they were like, I’m out of here, sorry.'”
After he returned to his room, Ujiiro said, he went back out to the lobby and tried to call DSI again, but the call went dead.
He called his family, who told him they’d lost their tickets.
“It was just a crazy situation,” Ujiim said.
He had no idea that DSI was the logistics company that had to take his wife from Toronto and then drive her to Washington.
“Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever had a more frustrating day in my life, when we just got to go through this,” Ujjim said, tears in his eyes.
“That was the worst day in the whole whole world.
The Raptors won 95-92.
Ujimi was able a few days later to attend a Raptors practice, and then to a game in Boston.
He’s excited about seeing the Raptors in the postseason, but has to deal with the fact that he won’t be able go to their game.
“They have their ticket for the next game,” Ujuirek said.
