I'll miss the battles we had on the court. And the fun times at the wedding last summer, and the times we spent in university years back.

RIP big guy.

Awful news, I’m very sorry for your loss. TB was a really fun personality, always had this great and energetic vibe to him. Dude was always joking around and making people laugh but he was really great to have around. Definitely one of the top people I’m glad we celebrated the championship with. May he Rest In Peace, and hoping you can find the strength to pull through this as well knowing how much love and support he had. Gone way too young, won’t be forgotten.

I'm so happy he got to see the Raptors win it all last year. We texted a lot during that historical run. When the bucks were up 2-0 and everyone wrote us off he was telling raps fans who thought it was over to never give up. He was always so positive.

Its one thing to expect someone might pass away when they are sick and you witness their deterioration, its another for it to be so sudden, just a brutal car accident.

RIP. And may his family find peace.

May he rest in peace.


I'm sorry for your loss.

This news was really saddening. TB24 was one of my favourite posters on RealGM. He was really funny and had a way with words which inspired and made you laugh at the same time. Some of his posts on the Celtics board during the height of the Raps-Celtics Realgm rivalry were downright legendary. I exchanged some pm's with him also, and he always came across as a great person. I'm happy that he got the chance to see the Raps win last year. Man, this news really shook me to the core :(

Rest in peace, Throwback24.

Condolences to his family and friends in this difficult time.

Wow, im going miss the guy. Great personality on the forum and he also would occasionally reach out to me through private message. Throwback was good to me and was an amazing motivator too. Unbelievable. I hope his family recovers from this.

I feel like throwback deserves his own thread. Being a longtime poster and all. **** man this sucks.

A true OG, RIP To TB24.

I feel like we need to shut down this thread at least for a little bit in his honour.

I don't know what the hell is going on here. I have had trouble sleeping the past few nights though. It's same thing that happened to me when Kobe passed. I hate 2020.

The moment is here. People talk about perfect timing, but I think everything is perfect in its moment; you just want to capture that.

That's why we have to savor these moments, they're right now. Just checking in to see how you guys are coping a couple weeks after. I just hope we all fully embrace just how blessed we are to be Raptor fans.







Continue to love, glow, give 120% in your personal lives, find your truth, climb your proverbial mountain. And most of all, trust in the process and enjoy the journey. It's time for all of us to make the necessary changes and moves to win our own championships.

Throwback was clearly very aware of his own existence and mortality and was motivated to turn around whatever struggles he could have. Who knew within a year his time could run out?

RIP, may there be gambling in heaven
