Does everyone love Fred VanVleet, or is it just us? Three months after the NBA Finals, the Toronto Raptors are still making people's dreams come true. That was certainly the case for a bunch of Toronto kids on Tuesday thanks to a Fred VanVleet school visit which seemed to make the children's day.\nThe appearance of the man they call Fred Sr. at Chalkfarm Public School in North York was apparently a surprise for the keen pupils.\nAnd they certainly seemed delighted to have an adopted local hero in their presence, judging by these images.\nLook at all these smiles. 🤗 pic.twitter.com/Cj0FXS9nO8— Toronto DSB (@tdsb) September 10, 2019\nThis was a rather more tame day out for VanVleet than he's likely expecting later this month.\nOn Sept. 19, the point guard will mingle with adoring Raptors fans at a meet-and-greet in Shoeless Joe's in Vaughan.\nGuess who surprised @ChalkfarmPSTDSB today? Thank you @FredVanVleet for making everyone’s day! 🏀 #WeTheNorth pic.twitter.com/bIVVUizwwt— Toronto DSB (@tdsb) September 10, 2019\nVanVleet — or VanThreet, to give him his postseason name — is a native of Rockford, Illinois. However, Torontonians largely consider him one of their own.\nHe's certainly earned his place as something of a darling figure among Raptors fans in recent years, anyway. His role in helping Raptors 905 win the G-League championship in 2017. His nomination for Sixth Man of the Year in 2018. His remarkable playoff form and nomination for Finals MVP in June.\nHell, he even looks like Drake. According to some, anyway.\nIf there was anything needed to cement his cult hero status among Torontonians, brushing off an almighty hit to the face during Game 4 of the Finals was probably the clincher.\nAnd now, he's going around inspiring the city's youth and making schoolkids' day, not for the first time. What a guy.\nStay forever, Fred.\nThere are stories everywhere. If you spot a newsworthy event in your city, send us a message, photo, or video @NarcityCanada on Twitter and Instagram.
