So maybe this is why we haven’t seen the 2 time NBA Finals MVP in the Finals yet? Or…more likely it’s because he’s real hurt, but how cool is this! Earlier today I saw a tweet from TSN, where Golden State Warrior fans were told Durant wanted to play for the Raptors as a kid….then I had to check the facts. Is this just a funny bit to rile up the opposing teams fans, or is it true? I found an interview Durant did with Dan Patrick back in 2013 where…yep…he says it! Scroll to about the 4:10 mark
“believe it or not I wanted to play for the Toronto Raptors, that was my favourite team growing up. I was a big Vince Carter fan and I just liked their jerseys”
So…how did Warriors fans react to that news today?
Does this mean…Kawhi will stay with the Raps this offseason and Durant will join him?!
Durant is a game time decision for game 5 tonight in Toronto, where we will be part of the most unique Canadian National Anthem. The Raps announced that instead of bringing in an artist to do it, they’ll let the crowd in the building, in Jurassic Park, and across Canada sing it!
I hope it gives me chills…just like it did during the last Oilers playoff run!
