Raptors' run to NBA Finals a boost to Toronto tourism

DeMarcus Cousins Warriors

Kevin Durant, DeMarcus Cousins unlikely for start of NBA Finals

Kawhi Leonard is second behind Curry with +250 odds - only slightly higher than the odds of the Toronto Raptors winning the Finals (+240 at Westgate). And for Kawhi, to take all the negative press he received and to focus on taking the East and taking each series game by game, it's a big deal.

As Giannis got off the plane and made his way through the airport, Bucks fans chanted "MVP MVP", showing their appreciation for how he helped them achieve their best season in decades.

As for Cousins, I would not be surprised if he returned to the Warriors simply to anchor the beginning of the second and fourth quarters, a unit that has struggled mightily with the loss of him and Durant.
