I’ve lived in many cities but there’s nothing like Toronto. There is something about this city that makes you feel comfortable—except for the cold, of course. I still can’t get used to it! Toronto does look like a wonderland when it snows though. Check it in this video!
It’s a big city, but I feel like everything is in reach (except if you try to drive downtown in rush hour… you really need to have a lot of patience for that). It’s a very international city, with people from many different nationalities. Torontonians are fun and outgoing, and they embrace you and welcome you in as a part of their community. That is a positive for me, because like I explained before, I have lived in different countries and experienced different cultures, and I can experience a lot of them here in Toronto. From shopping to restaurants, this city has so much to offer. I love going to high-end restaurants but also to casual spots in Chinatown or other parts of the city.
Having had the journey I’ve had, I have no doubt that off the court Toronto is one of the best cities in the league for a player. And on the court? Well, there’s really an advantage playing here in front of our home crowd. I believe we have the best fans in the league. We had the best home record in the regular season and that’s mostly because of them.
