Toronto Raptors Superfan Hasn’t Missed a Game in 20 Years

Great Big Story gets to know Nav Bhatia, a cheerful basketball fan from Toronto, Canada who hasn’t missed a single Toronto Rapters game in the NBA franchise’s 22-year history.

“The Toronto Raptors have only been around for about 20 years, but Nav Bhatia has never missed a game. This super fan left his native India to resettle in Toronto, and when the NBA came to the frozen north, Bhatia bought his first two tickets. That was all it took to hook him. Now Bhatia sits courtside and hangs with the team and Canadian royalty (ahem, Drake). He also represents the changing face of basketball fans, both in Canada and around the world.”
