It's been over a year since the Toronto Raptors won the NBA championship, but some players are still celebrating. Jordan Loyd, who was known as one of the team's famous benchwarmers, just received his Raptors Championship ring. In a video, the star proclaims that he has no idea what to do with it.
The former Raptors player may not be remembered for being on the court, however, Loyd was best known for being the guy in the background during Kawhi's famous buzzer shot.
While Loyd no longer plays for the team, he was finally able to get his hands on his long-awaited championship bling.
"Finally! much love @Raptors, thank you" he tweeted on July 1 with a video of him showing off the ring.
"I know I'm looong overdue," he says as he opens the box. "But first time laying eyes on this thing. Man, this is crazy."
In fact, the basketball player even stated that he wasn't sure what he was going to do with his new jewellery.
"Like, what do you even do with this? Man....what? Shout out Toronto. Shout out everyone. Shout out to all the champs. This is crazy. I don't even know what to do."

The up and coming basketball player signed a two-way contract with the Toronto Raptors in August 2018.
According to Yahoo Sports, he didn't see much court time, only playing 4.6 minutes per game.

He has hilariously referenced his rookie status by wearing a shirt with the words "RANDOM GUY IN A SUIT" written on it while attending the victory parade.
The basketball player, who now plays for Crvena Zvezda in Serbia, mutually ended his contract with the Raptors in August 2019.
However, he forever remains a part of the Raptors' history for his presence in the now-classic photo of the buzzer shot.
