Le Nord c'est nous? Toronto Raptors brush up on their French

MONTREAL -- The Toronto Raptors dominated the NBA last season. But can they master the French language?

They give it their best shot in a video posted Monday on the team's official Twitter acoount, which has several of the team's players taking a run at deciphering some very basic French phrases.

The results were decidely mixed, with players already conversant in French - such as forward Pascal Siakam, centre Serge Ibaka and Montreal native Chris Boucher - breezing through, while some of their colleagues can be credted only with being game to try.

You can watch their occasionally comical efforts in the video above.
