The Toronto Raptors superfan Nav Bhatia will be in the new gallery of the Basketball Hall of Fame

Now, the Raptors superfan will be stored forever in the new gallery Naismith Memorial Hall of Fameaccording to an announcement by the president of the Hall of Fame, Jerry Colangelo, on Friday during the start of the NBA All-Star Weekend in Chicago.

“I can’t say this is a dream come true because it’s not something you dream of as a fan,” tweeted Bhatia. “Being honored in @Hoophall as the first prize in the Superfan Gallery. What an amazing day. Don’t wake me up please. Thanks to the Hall and @Raptors organization.”

“For everything you’ve done for sports in Canada, there’s no one more worthy,” the Raptors organization tweeted from its official Twitter.

The Hall of Fame will open the superfan gallery later this year, a lobby spokesman told CNN on Saturday.

During the year, Bhatia attracted international attention the finals of the NBA when it was discovered that he hadn’t lost a game since 1995, which means he went to all the games in person. The Raptors won the title last year against the Golden State Warriors, making them the first team outside the United States to win the NBA finals.
But the story of Bhatia begins in 1984 when she sought refuge in Canada after the anti-Sikh riots in India, according to The great history of CNN. After becoming a car salesman and starting to own a dealership, Bhatia found another refuge: basketball.

Since becoming the Raptors superfan, he has frequented artists such as Drake, has been personally thanked by Kobe Bryant and has become a celebrity himself, taking photos with fans from time to time at the Scotiabank Arena.

Bhatia founded his nonprofit organization that raises funds to build basketball courts and children’s playgrounds in Canada and around the world, according to Great Big Story.
