- Finals – voting ended November 30
The Toronto Raptors have won the Best Water Cooler Moment of 2020. Monday thru Friday on Gameops.com we feature something a team did that got their fans talking. During 2020 the guests on the Party in the Back Podcast selected their favorite moment of the month. Then in November our readers voted from a bracket of those highlights to determine our winner.
The Raptors welcomed back Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard with a custom lighting package retracing his steps and shot in the final seconds of their game against the Philadelphia 76ers. This goosebump-inducing moment is the perfect example of a Water Cooler Moment. A production element that gets people talking around the Water Cooler the next day. Bill Veeck noted that is the ultimate test of a promotion: word of mouth affirmation.
Congrats the Toronto and their excellent staff.
