'Band Leader' Magloire Big Winner in Toronto Festival

What Mardi Gras is to New Orleans and Carnevale is to Rio, Caribana is to Toronto, a massive street festival featuring local bands, colorful costumes and loud music. And when it was all over, after the 25,000 marchers had strutted by 1.5 million spectators, the big winner was the Toronto Revellers, led by its band leader--and Nets' center--Jamaal Magloire. Magloire annually raises $50,000 to help his Revellers get organized and outfitted for the continent's biggest Caribbean festival.
