Kawhi Leonard wasn’t in Toronto when the Raptors received their championship rings on Tuesday to kick off the NBA season, but that didn’t make things any less special. Before the first game of the year got underway in Ontario between the Raptors and the New Orleans Pelicans, we were treated to an incredible ceremony that capped off the wild 2018-19 run by Toronto.
After all the players received their humongous rings, Kyle Lowry took the microphone and addressed the crowd, thanking them for supporting the team. Lowry was also sure to thank Leonard and Danny Green, who are both with different teams.
Then Lowry and his teammates unveiled the championship banner hanging at Scotiabank Arena.
The Raptors are NBA champions. What a time to be alive.
