Toronto Raptors star Pascal Siakam is a very positive person. As he stated multiple times in various interviews, he is always cheerful and ready to have a great time. However, during an interview with the New York Times, he opened up about more negative things.

He concentrated on two things – the racism he faces as a person of color and the hurtful comments he received about his father that passed away in 2014. Talking about the business side of the NBA, Pascal Siakam stated:

I’m a really prideful person and I always want to be the best player that I can be, and the bubble wasn’t that. So I get it, I understand it, but also for me what really hurt me is one of those things about my dad or like, “Oh, your dad wouldn’t have been proud of this.”
