“Basketball is amazing.” says Matthew Stasyna, better known as NBA Humorist TURBOZONE.

“Take the biggest humans in the world, add in all their massive egos, player histories, millions of wild fans and billions of dollars and have them battle at full speed for 48 mins. It’s one heck of a spectacle.”

“I’m happy to be part of it, using my art skills to promote my hometown Toronto Raptors. The greatest franchise in the history of the Universe.”

Turbozone’s unique coverage of the Raptors has earned him features on NBA.com, ESPN, TSN, Yahoo Sports, Dime Magazine, The Toronto Star, The Hockey News and various other sports sites across North America. He’s done work for several NBA players, won the Toronto Raptors Logo Re-Design Contest (2014), Toronto Raptors Northside Pride Contest (2015), MyRapsDesign Contest (2017) and other prizes from the franchise. He’s a regular in the Raptors online community, where his “sigs” can be seen gracing people’s profiles.


Matthew Stasyna was born in Toronto and has been making art since he was a kid.

After drawing his way through his young life, he decided to merge his work with his passion, earning a degree in 3D Animation and Graphic Design. Those skills allowed him to express his love for basketball through creative software.


Matt is currently a Special FX Artist for Cineplex

He lives in and loves Toronto.
