Raptors head coach Nick Nurse's shoulder rub from Drake has officially been immortalized. A new mural dedicated to the Toronto Raptors has just been installed on Queen Street West in downtown Toronto. As we can see in photos of the new Toronto Raptors mural, it features a cameo of Drake giving coach Nick Nurse the now infamous shoulder rub that garnered worldwide attention during game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
The new mural, which is proudly showcased on the front of a Toronto consignment shop called Overdose Toronto, replaces one of Kawhi Leonard. The mural was put up last night, just in time for Game 1 of the NBA Championship series tonight, in which the Toronto Raptors will face off against the Golden State Warriors.
The storefront on which the mural is painted is located at 273 Queen Street West, which has been home to many a Raptors mural over the last few days.
Even though the mural is just a mere 9 hours old, fans are already posing in front of the artistic homage to Toronto's team and posting their pictures on social media.
Since their big win on Saturday night, Toronto has become adorned in everything Raptors to showcase the city's team spirit. Kawhi Leonard murals and street artwork dedicated to the Raptors have been popping up throughout the city, and fans simply cannot get enough of them.
Less than 24 hours after Toronto's home team achieved their historic Game 6 victory against the Milwaukee Bucks, Raptors fans rushed to OD Toronto, the building recognized for its iconic Kawhi Leonard mural. Basking in the glow of the Raptors' triumph, fans couldn't wait to get a photo of themselves alongside the mural of King Kawhi.
