Congratulations to the Toronto Raptors! The NBA’s only non-American team are the 2019 NBA Finals Champions.
After successfully defeating the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night, the streets of Toronto flooded with fans for a party that is sure to last all weekend long. Or perhaps all week long.
The celebrations will continue on Monday, June 17 when the Raptors bring the “Larry O’B” home to Toronto for their first-ever Championship Parade.
Shortly after the Raptors’ Game 6 victory, Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment announced the team will celebrate their win in Toronto on Monday at 10 a.m. starting from Exhibition Place.
