Thank you for stumbling onto my blog! This blogs aims to capture a Canadian perspective on all news relating to the NBA and other cultural topics that relate to the world of basketball in Toronto. When you think of Toronto, basketball is not the first think that comes to mind. You may think of Drake, or the CN tower or maybe the Toronto Maple Leafs, as Canada has fostered a strong hockey culture, until now.
Last year changed the entire landscape for Toronto sports. As the Toronto Raptors clinched their first NBA title in the history of the franchise. Something that no one ever thought of seeing, at least not at this point. Taking the chip has to be one of the greatest achievements in Canadian sports, as the “True North” finally validated itself over the 24 years of disappointment. The attitude in Toronto changed, as we now see ourselves as a true contender in the East and we should be. After recently passing the Miami Heat for second place on January, we have a shot at knocking out of the Bucks and potentially making it to the finals. The players are there, the chemistry is present, and we have the experience….we were there less than a year ago!
Anyways stay tuned for more information as I will be discussing general news in the NBA, with a more specific analysis on the Atlantic Division and the Eastern conference as we head into the playoffs! Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any suggestions on topics relating to the NBA.
