Looking for another chance to celebrate your glorious NBA champion Toronto Raptors?
The Larry O’Brien NBA championship trophy (thank you Kawhi!) will be on display at Nathan Phillips Square on Monday, Oct. 21 during the afternoon for a public celebration. You can relive those amazing June memories from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The team opens the defense of their title Tuesday, Oct. 22 with their regular season home opener against the New Orleans Pelicans at Scotiabank Arena. The Raptors will receive their championship rings and a banner will be unveiled. Plenty of Toronto bars are holding opening night parties.
The Raptors also announced that fans who have tickets for Tuesday’s game will each receive a replica of the championship rings being given to the players. Fans attending inside and at Jurassic Park are advised to arrive early as the ceremonies will start at 7:15 p.m.
Also, the official NBA film about the team’s classic playoff run will be released Oct. 22. It’s called 2019 NBA Champions: Toronto Raptors. The 80-minute opus has commentary, interviews and new insider footage. Here’s the trailer. Given his special bond with the Raps, we’re thinking Drake will be in there somewhere.
See you at Jurassic Park!
