Fred Van Vleet doesn't forget where he came from in the middle of his greatest achievement. 

The undrafted Auburn guard had 22 points, including a team-high 12 in the fourth quarter, to help lead the Raptors to a Game 6 win and an NBA Championship.

After the game in the above interview with Doris Roberts ends it by looking into the camera and shouting "Rockford! This is for you!"

That was the scene at Rockford's "Jurassic Park" watch party. Safe to say that we were pretty excited as well.

It's going to be a big summer for Fred. A LOT of people around the country has discovered who he is. I'm sure he'll get a pretty warm reception when he returns to the city.

What a great dude and awesome story. Remember to always Bet On Yourself!
