It happened! It finally happened.... Jamaal "The Big Cat" Magloire, 2004 NBA All-Star and Raptors assistant coach, has finally won an NBA championship!

Thank you Toronto for knocking off the champs. Also congrats to Marc Gasol and Jeremy Lin. I'm so happy that they finally got a ring!

It would've been a remarkable accomplishment, one worthy of applause really, if the Warriors had been able to push this to Game 7 at this point, let alone win it. Frankly, I was hoping it would happen, although obviously I'm not gonna complain about this outcome, either.

 

Of course, if this weren't Golden State but rather, oh I dunno, Boston, then there's zero chance I would be writing those words. Shameless hypocrite.

Dig the new icon Ice. I have not been able to sleep. I don't think It has sunk in yet. Sure to others its w.e but, for being a fan since day one and, to only live 1 and half hour from Toronto you've seen it all lol.

I'm sure it will take awhile to actually realize how surreal this actually is. I think actually I blanked out once the buzzer hit lol ( no booze was involved lol ).

Not only that but to witness history. I thought TFC winning was something special. But I think this is beyond and more. A true moment from my perspective to be apart of history. It may not happen again ( not in bad way ). So in the mean time, I'm taking this time to soak it all in.

I just hope I remember it all after the weekend ;)

I’m right there with you. Being a fan as a 90s kid when the team sucked and the rest of the league treated them like a joke. I remember watching them play the Jordan Bulls only to get annihilated and still cheering every basket they managed. Or watching them during the Vince Carter years thinking they were going to do it. Seeing Bosh leave for the Miami superteam. Seeing them fall short every year...  

 

I can’t believe this stupid dinosaur team I’ve stuck by because they were my stupid dinosaur hometown team finally did it. I still can’t sleep. 

 

I only wish I could have been in Kitchener-Waterloo for it. Being back home to see this would have been magical.

What can Golden State even do? This just became impossible for them. 2019-20 is going to be a really bad year for them.

It's a team owned by Joe Lacob.

 

According to his long time previous comments, the Warriors are "on to the next idea".

 

Chase Center is over budget by 30% but the team still has $2B in sponsorships, PSL/suites, and tickets sold before it opens. They'll be fine.

 

OTOH, Curry seems to be given a pass for his "unclutchness". In Game 6 he was 3-11 from 3 and 6-17 overall for 21 points.

Imagine if that was LeBron's line.

 

2015 LeBron was putting up 36, 13, and 9 while losing his two best teammates yet still got ripped.

Huge congrats to the Raps! This team is super likable, top to bottom (depending on your opinion on Drake), and I am super happy for them and their fans. As for the Warriors, it’s satisfying to see Draymond and Boogie lose, but it’s a huge bummer about the injuries to Klay and KD. Never good to see such major injuries, much less to two of the league’s top talents. 

 

And I know someone already pointed it out, but please, don’t let all the fuss about this series distract you from the fact that Patrick McCaw threepeated.

I wish, but alas it'll probably be that team from Boston again. 

 

The Patriots are from 45 minutes (on a good day) away and I refuse to accept them as Boston Boston.

I’m sorry but the “even Canadian” bit gave me a chuckle.

This. Drake wants to pretend like he is an athlete so badly. But even at his worst, he is a million times less annoying than Curry, Draymond, Klay, KD and Cousins. Both the Bucks and Raptors were very likable teams in the East. I'm sure people are a lot happier to see them battle it out, instead of Lebron in the finals every year.

I don’t like seeing two great players out for so long.  But...

 

At this point, the NBA looks refreshingly wide-open next year.

Is the Drake curse broken or does having two Golden State players tattooed on his arm mean the curse continues?

You can put together an NBA championship team and still get harrassed by the cops.

Sorry man. What do you want me to say? The Raptors won the NBA Championship! I never thought this was going to happen.

Thing is I generally do like the Spurs. I think they're a great organization. That being said? Not gonna let your salt ruin this ;)

 

And I don’t want to ruin it for you guys, I really like this raptors roster and I think Lowry and Gasol were some of the most deserving of a championship. I’m really happy the raptors won, just not Kawhi.

None of this happens without an improbable quadruple doink in game 7 vs Sixers. Good for Kawai and Lowry. Really came to like this team and was rooting them on after the Sixers got KOd. 

 

Just sucks they won in those silly jerseys and not their primary

Are we allowed to discuss race, or did we get into too much trouble last time?
