It was only a matter of time before Nav Bhatia got his own endorsement deal, wasn’t it?
The Raptors Superfan has been seemingly everywhere during the NBA Finals, as basketball fans worldwide discover what Toronto already knew: He’s a really awesome guy.
“I’ve seen it all,” Bhatia says in a new commercial for Tim Hortons. “Mostly from courtside, seat A12.”
Bhatia has never missed a Raptors home game since they entered the league in 1995. He’s also never been late or left early.
But what you really have to admire about him is his humanity.
After racist comments by a Milwaukee Bucks fan during the Conference Finals, he turned it into a positive by speaking with the fan, later saying that he would like to take him out to dinner.
“Raptors are in the Finals and the whole world is looking at this seat,” Bhatia says in the commercial. “Some see Indian. Some see Canadian. Some see both. Some see a turban.
“I hope they see diversity and loyalty. I hope people see why Canada is so special.”
