My Top 5: Sean Monahan
1. Dialing it up in the ‘416’
“I’m definitely a big fan of Kyle Lowry. Being from the Toronto area, that’s my home team. He carries a big load for the Raptors. He’s always been a clutch guy.”
2. Great in the ‘State’
“I’ve always enjoyed watching Kevin Durant play. He got a lot of criticism going from Oklahoma City to play for Golden State, but he’s still playing his game and excelling.”
3. Big in Beantown
“Isaiah Thomas is another dynamic player. He’s a great competitor. He’s not very big, but he’s got that fire in his game and he plays with a lot of emotion. That’s fun to watch.”
4. Golden touch
“Steph Curry, he’s just amazing to watch. He shoots from everywhere and seems to come up with a lot of big shots in the clutch.”
5. The King rules
“I’d have to go with LeBron James. He’s one-of-a-kind, and the work he puts in off the court is phenomenal. The bigger the game, the bigger he plays. He’s a special talent.”
