Raptors forward Chris Boucher returned home this past weekend for the first time as an NBA champion.
Boucher moved to Montreal North from St-Lucia as a child and celebrated the Raptors’ first NBA title with the community in which he was raised.
The 26-year-old champ visited Parc Le Carignan in Montreal-North and Parc Champdoré on Friday, posing for pictures and showing off some serious hardware before hosting his first annual Community Basketball Camp and BBQ on Saturday in Mont Royal.

Boucher didn’t see any playing time during the finals but that didn’t stop the Montrealer from inspiring kids in the community from living out their dreams of one day making it to the NBA.
“I promise I would come back and celebrate with my people of Montreal and it was amazing,” wrote Boucher in a social media post. “Love you Montreal.”
