Nike Crown League Tournament: ‘Toronto Has Always Had Kings’


LA has the Drew League, NYC has Rucker, now TO has its own

Friday, July 3rd 2015 was the opening night of Nike Crown League at Jarvis C.I, an elimination tournament showcasing Toronto’s elite basketball players. Crown League features six teams: ACE, M.A.D.E, 1LOVETO, CIA Bounce, 6Man, and Northern Kings.Β 


I’ve always admired the popular summer leagues they have in the States (been to Dyckman and Procity in NYC), so I was excited to see Toronto finally get an organized league in partnership with Nike for the summer. The level of talent displayed on opening night was unmatched with all games being fairly close and competitive.Β 


The star of the night was former Baylor point guard Brady Heslip who was draining 3s and finished with 44 points! Great opening night, looking forward to the next few weeks!

Crown League will be every Friday, ending on July 24th. Doors at 5:45PM. Claim your seat at NIKE.COM/Toronto.
