Today, readers are celebrating the Raptors defeating the Warriors in Game 6 to secure first NBA title in franchise history.
Exciting final game with tremendous sportsmanship after the game. Great entertainment and kudos to the Raptors organization. Hope they can hold on to Leonard.
Except for fans at Jurassic Park, I wonder what the streets of Toronto looked like in the final quarter? Probably as empty as you'll ever see them. Congratulations Raptors! Everyone in the organization did all the hard work. You've brought sports pride back to T.O.
An immense amount of hard work and dedication. Thank you for a tremendous season and congrats on becoming deserving Champions, Raptors. You are something special, and we'll relish in this for a long time.
I can’t believe this is real. I’ve been a fan of this team since day one. Raptors NBA champions!

I wouldn't go out of my way to watch basketball, but this quest took every Canadian along. They truly nailed the spirit of the thing - representing Canadian pride and values the whole way. And then every photo I see shines so mightily with the splendour of Canada's diversity - like nothing I've seen in my 54 years. I'm a Montrealer who doesn't care about basketball. And I am a superfan!!! I couldn't be more proud!
Great game coverages this year, Rachel. Thank you. Of the many thanks, one shout-out that I did not see would be for Jerry Stackhouse, and the great job he did with the 905s - particularly Spicy P and fourth Quarter Freddie!
Great ride. Hopefully fans will get out and watch more basketball in Canada. Many dedicated coaches in minor, middle school, high school & Canadian universities have spent decades laying the groundwork for what may be our first Olympic medals in the men's and women's games in the next summer Olympics.
