Former US President Barack Obama is welcomed by the Toronto Raptors as he attended the Game 2 of the 2019 NBA Finals vs the Golden State Warriors.

Barack and Raptors president Masai Ujiri are good friends from Ujiri’s work with the Giants of Africa as well as being together during trade talks with Kawhi Leonard.
However, it is unclear if Obama is supporting the Raptors since he also has a strong bond with Stephen Curry who has supported Obama-led charitable programs and having visited him after winning the 2018 Championship title.
The crowd chanted MVP for Barack Obama including a standing ovation when he was shown in the jumbotron, a very nice and warm gesture from Toronto.
