Basketball was invented by a Canadian. The first National Basketball Association Game was played in Canada and now the Larry O'Brien trophy signifies that a Canadian Team is the NBA Champion. Congratulations Toronto.
So here we are watching the Toronto Raptors as they return home with a chance to be the first non-US based team to win the Larry O'Brien trophy. If they do it will be a significant moment for the NBA and for Canadians who have waited 24 years to see their team win the big one.
