Raptors star player was caught carrying a Nespresso machine and Canada can relate

Raptors center Marc Gasol delighted Canadians on Friday by sharing a photo of himself exiting a tour bus in Florida, clad in a Black Lives Matter t-shirt and a black mask.

But it wasn't Gasol's outfit that caught Canadians' attention.

The Spanish basketball player was carrying what appears to be a Nespresso machine in his left hand, along with a casual gallon of water, because hydration is key.

As anyone that's ever tried hotel coffee knows, it basically tastes like burned tar, so Canadians couldn't help but relate to Gasol's "BYOC" (bring your own coffee) attitude.

"Never have I related to a photo more than Marc Gasol with his Nespresso," one person wrote.

"Can't mess with a man who brought his own Nespresso to camp," another person said.

"Marc bringing his own Nespresso supplies!" yet another person said. "Some things cannot be left to chance. We stan a properly caffeinated champion."

"Mask and coffee," another person said. "All the necessities of life."

The Toronto Raptors may have travelled over 2,000 kilometres to get to Florida, but Gasol knows his priorities. Coffee is an essential item when it comes to packing.

The Raptors also recently unveiled several team buses with the phrase "Black Lives Matter" written across them, making Canadians across the country proud to call them our team.

Keep killing it, Raptors.
