Celebs React to Toronto Raptors Winning NBA Finals 2019 – See the Tweets!

The 32 year old rapper (real name Aubrey Drake Graham) was a longtime fixture courtside throughout the playoffs, was seen celebrating in Toronto as the Raptors won the championship at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California.

Raptor fans flooded the streets of Toronto in the early morning hours on Friday after the team clinched its first ever National Basketball Association title after dropping Golden State 114-110.

The Toronto Raptors are officially the winners of the 2019 NBA Finals!

Fans back in Toronto were pictured partying and cheering in the streets after the emotional win.

Following the game, an exultant Drake, a Raptors mega-fan who, as the official global ambassador of his hometown team, has been a court-side fixture throughout the finals, declared the curse null and void.

The Warriors were also missing Kevin Durant.

Golden State Warriors All-Star Klay Thompson is expected to miss 9-10 months with a torn left ACL, Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes reported on Friday.

Then Klay Thompson, towards the end of the third quarter, went up for a transition dunk and was fouled by Danny Green.

Asked if the altercation could be chalked up to a misunderstanding given the hectic circumstances of the game's end, he said, "We're past the misunderstanding point".

Fred VanVleet rescued the Raptors down the stretch with his dazzling shooting from deep to score 22 points with five 3s off the bench, while Leonard wound up with 22 points. Klay started towards the locker room before turning around in the hallway, coming back out to shoot his free throws so he would have the option of returning later in the game.

It was a devastating Finals series for the Warriors.

"I'm amazed at how many people I have talked to from different part of the country who have suddenly become emotionally invested in basketball".

With Kawhi leading the Raptors to glory, some attention was brought to Demar DeRozan, the longtime Raptors guard who was sent to San Antonio in the trade package that landed Leonard in Toronto.
