Raptors superfan Nav Bhatia got a special shout out at the team’s game Friday for being featured in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

“Since 1995 … the one constant has been Nav Bhatia,” the announcer said as Bhatia sat courtside in black and gold Raptors apparel.

“Since that inaugural season, Nav has attended every home game, and many road games, in the Raptors’ 25-year history,” the announcer continued.

“In honour of his dedication and passion for the game of basketball … Nav Bhatia became the first honouree of the new superfan gallery at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.”

At that point, Bhatia stood up and blew kisses to the crowd who gave him a standing ovation.

It was revealed last week that he’d be featured in the new gallery, and many, including his daughter Tia Bhatia, are very proud.
