Game 6 Turning Point: Kawhi won Finals MVP, but he needed Fred VanVleet to help

They did it. Against all odds, the Toronto Raptors are NBA Champions today, tomorrow and throughout the rest of league history. Their names will be etched onto the ledgers — and nothing will take it away.

I want to start somewhere unorthodox with this final Turning Point piece — with a little reflection. We’ve grown to know this group of players from all over the world, not personally, but through screens or from the stands. We know them, and they know us as a collective. When nobody else was watching in November, or through the rough patch in December — we were, and we never stopped.
