“It’s just starting to feel like everything we’re doing is just going through the motions and nothing’s really changing,” Raptors guard VanVleet said. “And here we are again with another unfortunate incident.”

VanVleet has lived this life. When he was five, he lost his father, whom he barely knew, shot in a drug deal. On Sunday, he was in his hotel room on what should have been Kobe Bryant’s birthday, and was reading the online post by Vanessa Bryant and thinking and crying, they lost their dad: “I lost my dad.”

“It feels like it was just yesterday,” said Reece Roussel. “I think about it almost every day, mainly at night. I still think how did we do that? No way.”

But, yes, they did it.

It’s been 366 days since then 12-year-old shortstop Stan Wiltz caught that line drive August 25, snatching the ball and a bit of history all at the same time.

Wiltz’s catch was the final out, putting the exclamation point on the magical run of the east bank team from River Ridge, which became the first team from Louisiana to win the Little League World Series with the 8-0 victory over Curacao.

“I still think about the process and all the practices we went through to get to that point,” Wiltz said. “It’s hard to believe that we ever did something like that. It’s so
