My latest Hoopsworld article is called “The Melting Pot of the North” and deals with the Raptors international roster mirroring that of Toronto’s citizens. You can check it out by clicking here.

  1. Not to poop on your party, but Toronto is more often described, not as a melting pot, but as a tossed salad. :p

    That said, you’re right – the Raptors’ makeup is quite like Toronto’s.

  2. I agree. I had the same Grade 7 education that said we’re a “tossed salad” but since that has a different meaning now… :p

    There’s no real need to appeal to our “multicultural”-ness of our city in a bid to get fans to come into the ACC. I just think, though, that while there’s no need on the fan’s end, it works out better for the players, since they get the support of the community and others once they find their way around. We can attract the best of players from a worldwide outlook due to our city. And yeah, it has worked out pretty good 🙂
