Trivia Tuesday: (Golden State) Warriors, come out to play

However, it will mark the first time in eight seasons the NBA Finals will not feature LeBron James representing the Eastern Conference.

But there is, of course, another key connection. My wife grew up in Markham, right down the street.

The Raptors face the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals, starting Thursday in Toronto.

Ayesha, an actress, has hosted a show on the Food Network and written a cookbook.

With the burden of carrying the Raptors lifted from his shoulders by Leonard, Lowry has put together a solid individual postseason run, averaging 14.7 points, 6.4 assists and 1.2 steals per game. When you (go) into the playoffs and into the Finals, you're not supposed to play the same team every year. It'll be much better for the team to have Durant playing than have him on the bench.

Game 1 of the series on Thursday night is in Canada, the first time a finals game will be played outside the U.S. Raptors President Masai Ujiri is a native of Nigeria.

Last month, after the Warriors wrapped up their final regular season game at Oracle in a deciding win against the Los Angeles Clippers, coach Steve Kerr thanked fans for 47 years of support.

Kerr said Durant has been spending countless hours rehabbing to recover - hoping to get back soon to what he loves most. I think those are the things that stick with me today. It's a great crowd.

It's even a homecoming of sorts for Warriors guard Stephen Curry, again.

It didn't take long for the Warriors to notice the energy in the city.

The Golden State Warriors' road to a third successive National Basketball Association title has detoured to a new destination and this one requires a passport.

"On our way here, walking to the bus, there were probably a couple hundred people outside booing us already. That's insane", he said.

Step back to decades ago when the team was just starting, Richard Peddie said it was patience that built up the team's fan base and current success in Toronto.

"Kawhi Leonard to hit the W and give them the big fat L!" another screams. "I'm also really looking forward to the national anthem because I love what happens now with the national anthem, and then, of course, the game".
