After a down-to-the-wire playoff series that saw the Toronto Raptors narrowly lose to the Brooklyn Nets, the world has taken notice that Canada has a little bit of game. Enough game, in fact, that NIKE is giving the city its own flagship House of Hoops.
While basketball isn't the number one sport in Canada, it has a dedicated fan base. The fans are so dedicated, in fact, that game after game they lined up outside the Air Canada Center to watch the hometown Raptors play, even when they weren't there.
For this dedication, the great white north is receiving their first ever basketball superstore with NIKE's House of Hoops, complete with a crossover mural, walls of shoes and glass cases filled with the latest gear.
