For the first time since his departure, former Raptors coach Nick Nurse addressed his time in Toronto during his opening press conference with the Philadelphia 76ers.
NICK NURSE: This is the first time I've been in front of the media since I left Toronto. So the first thing I'd like to say is that it was 10 great years in Toronto. Masai Ujiri and Larry Tanenbaum, Bobby Webster, everybody-- they treated me really well there. It was a fascinating city, fascinating country, lots of good players, et cetera. So very, very grateful for those 10 years, for sure.
In saying that, I am super excited to be here. This is a very good team, first of all. The tradition of the city as a sporting city and of this organization is amazing. And I'm honored and humbled and excited to be the new head coach of the 76ers.
