With a record number of Canadians taking the floor this past season and two-time MVP Steve Nash taking the head coaching job with the Brooklyn Nets, it's no secret that Canada has a huge influence on the NBA as well as the WNBA.
As such, several players and teams took to Twitter in celebration of Canada's Thanksgiving holiday, which falls several weeks before Thanksgiving in the states.
From Kyle Lowry's annual Thanksgiving assist to Tweets from Serge Ibaka, the Denver Nuggets and New York Knicks, there was no shortage of thanks given during the holiday.
