This weekend Fred got to play kind of close to home when the Toronto Raptors went up against the Chicago Bulls at the United Center.

The Bulls ended up losing to the Raptors 108-84. Fred VanVleet scored 16 of those points. I have a strong feeling a lot of Rockford Bull's fans didn't know who to root for this weekend. Of course you want the Bulls to win, but you can't help but root for Fred!

Well, apparently the love is mutual. Check out the awesome shoutout Rockford got from the Toronto Raptors on Twitter during this weekend's game -

How cool is that? Twitter definitely approved -

Can't wait to watch Fred have another amazing season.
