Tristan Thompson once ate a dozen Tim Horton’s donuts in single day

The Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers will clash in another NBA Finals. Here are the three keys to the much-anticipated series.

Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson is Canadian.

Zach Lowe of ESPN:

Thompson sheepishly admitted to Love that he ate a dozen Tim Horton’s donuts in one day.

They sprinted through Pearson International Airport in Toronto, minutes before flying to Orlando, Florida, because Thompson craved a Tim Horton’s coffee and thought it would be exhilarating to risk missing the flight.

“It was a long run,” Love said. “He gave no thought to how this might look to the public.”

This is part of an absolutely fantastic feature on Thompson by Lowe. I suggest reading it in full.
