For Toronto immigrants, Raptors’ rise to NBA Finals is personal

Raptors

Its NBA Finals time and the upstart Toronto Raptors have the Golden State Warriors on the ropes, leading the best of seven series by 2-1 margin.

This Christian Science Monitor story looks at the finals from a unique perspective:  "Everyone loves an underdog story. But for the heavily immigrant and minority fanbase in Toronto, the Raptors’ rise to the NBA Finals carries an added layer of sweet victory." (bold added).

Stay tuned as the finals continue.
