After proving time and time again that the Raptors are here to win, the Toronto team has made all of Canada proud. The Raptors won the NBA finals and are officially the first Canadian team to take home the championship. They have made history and we can't even contain our excitement. The good news keeps on coming – not only have the Toronto Raptors won the NBA championship, but they have now become the first Canadian team to ever win the title. Raps in 6ix!
It's been a wild ride, but it has a happy ending – the Raptors have taken home the championship after six games in the NBA finals against the Warriors. The Toronto franchise won Game 6 tonight in Oakland, California. The history-making game had fans on edge and it was all worth it.
It's no surprise that Canadians all across the country are going wild for this historic win. From coast to coast, people have been hosting and attending Raptors viewing parties. The Raptors Game 5 even broke records for its viewership, with more Canadians tuning in than for the Superbowl this year.
The Internet is blowing up from this historic win. Canadians all over are celebrating and this is definitely one of the exciting moments of 2019 so far.

The Golden States Warriors won the NBA finals for the last two years, and Canadians couldn't be more proud that a Toronto team dethroned them of their championship title.
Unsurprisingly, Kawhi Leonard was named the NBA Finals MVP. Well deserved, Kawhi!
Now that the Raptors have won, there's one more thing we're hoping for – that Kawhi will re-sign with the Toronto franchise next season.
