It's funny, Pascal Siakam said, how one disagreement can get blown out of proportion in the NBA these days.
There's no question that there was a heated argument between Siakam and Toronto Raptors coach Nick Nurse last March following the Raptors' loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, extending their losing streak to eight games. Siakam wasn't happy being benched in the fourth quarter and he "let Nurse know about it, loudly and aggressively with words beyond standard cursing. It got personal, lines were crossed and teammates had to intervene, according to multiple sources," Sportsnet's Michael Grange reported at the time.
But, as Siakam explained on The Bob McCowan Podcast, whatever issues did exist between the two has long been resolved.
