Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson is Canadian.
He went to high school in New Jersey and Nevada and college at Texas, but Thompson is a Toronto native.
If you need proof of his nationality, his shooting coach, Dave Love, provided it.
Thompson sheepishly admitted to Love that he ate a dozen Tim Horton’s donuts in one day.
They sprinted through Pearson International Airport in Toronto, minutes before flying to Orlando, Florida, because Thompson craved a Tim Horton’s coffee and thought it would be exhilarating to risk missing the flight.
“It was a long run,” Love said. “He gave no thought to how this might look to the public.”
This is part of an absolutely fantastic feature on Thompson by Lowe. I suggest reading it in full.
