Sharks' Logan Couture Rooting for Raptors Vs. Warriors in NBA Finals

Logan Couture is sticking with the Raptors.

The Sharks center, who was born about 60 miles outside of Toronto in Guelph, Ontario, tweeted Wednesday that he will root for his hometown team against the Warriors in the NBA Finals. 

Next season, the 30-year-old will enter the first year of an eight-year extension he signed last summer. If the Warriors beat the Raptors as many are predicting, Couture could be in for a long summer of trash talk from Bay Area fans. NBC Sports California's Brodie Brazil got a head start Wednesday afternoon.

This isn't the first time that Couture has had divided loyalties in this matchup. The Warriors and Raptors squared off at SAP Center -- the Sharks' home building -- in the preseason in 2015, and Couture tweeted at the time that he was "cheering a little for both teams."

Of course, the NBA Finals stage is just a bit bigger. Game 1 tips off in Toronto on Thursday at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. PT.
