This Week in Sports Social Media…….let’s be honest, nothing else really matters in Canadian sports for just a minute because your TORONTO RAPTORS ARE WORLD CHAMPIONS!!!!! Taking the title in Oakland and ending the Warriors hopes for a three-peat never felt so sweet for the Raps, the city of Toronto and Canada!
Fred ices it
The man from Rockford once again had ice in his veins and after one of the hardest fought games we’ve ever seen, he iced it in the 4th quarter to kick off the pandemonium.
This post doesn’t need a single comment. We’re speechless.
Nav kicks off celebrations at Oracle
Until the celebrations kicked off and while it wasn’t the way anyone in the Bay envisioned saying goodbye to Oracle Arena but after the win was official, our very own Superfan kicked off the celebrations that wouldn’t end til security kicked everyone out
Masai puts on for TO
Post-game Adam Silver passed around the hardware and Masai was passionate in proclaiming his love for TO and giving credit to the BEST FANS IN THE WORLD!
Pascal soaks it in
Once trophy time was over, the Champs took their trophies to the locker room and kicked off the celebrations that are sure to last a while. GLORY’s very own Cover 001 feature Pascal was all joy and we couldn’t be happier for him.
Kawhi’s a fun guy after all
Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard displayed how much fun he really was too. He was just waiting for something to actually celebrate.
Slimm Duck gets one for Canada
While he didn’t get to actually play in the playoffs, G League MVP Chris Boucher will get his ring and we’re gonna bet he’ll also be a big part of the next run this team takes. Just wait Slimm Duck, Canada is watching and cheering!!
Fred and Kyle hug it out
While the champagne flowed, there were still some press obligations for the newly crowned champs but leave it to Kyle and Fred to hog the stage and show their love for one another.
They did something special
And of course Kawhi had a few words to say about how we all got here and what his motivations were coming to Toronto. Spoken like a true champ, he did something special alright!
Ma Fuzzy Celebrates
No one knows how to party like Serge and he saved his best moves for the hotel late night.
Drake celebrates with poetry, music
And of course we had to tune into Drake because the boy from TO was on fire last night dropping post-game poetry to press scrums while announcing that new music is coming today to celebrate the occasion. WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE!
The streets of TO erupt
What would a Championship be without a proper, all night celebration and the streets of TO lit up last night like never before. TORONTO, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 24 YEARS THE LARRY O’BRIEN TROPHY IS YOURS!!
