Much like any team that tends to win a lot, the majority of people that will be watching the NBA Finals this year definitely want the Golden State Warriors to fall flat and lose.
This was evident when a map was created by BETonline that showed that 47 states were pulling for the Toronto Raptors to upset the Warriors.
Go figure, Americans overwhelmingly want the team from Canada to beat the team from the United States.
The data was collected by using the Raptor’s #WeTheNorth hashtag in comparison to Golden State’s #DubNation, as well as other indicating factors to determine which team each state is rooting for.
One things for sure, people love the underdog, which is what the Toronto Raptors certainly are in this match-up. If Kawhi Leonard can get this team over the hump, he will most certainly cement his legacy as not only the best player in Raptors history, but the best player in the entire league.
In just eight months time, Kawhi Leonard went from most disliked person in the city of San Antonio to absolute icon to Canadians.
