The NBA Championship comes north of the Border.

The NBA season has come to an end on Thursday as it crowned a new champion in the Toronto Raptors, it was their very first championship in their franchise’s history.

At the same time, the defending champion in the Golden State Warriors had their five-year finals run come to an abrupt end.

It has been the first time in the history of the NBA where the Larry O’Brien trophy came north of the Border.

Mind you, no one ever thought that an NBA franchise would ever get the kind of love and support like the Toronto Raptors have in their 25-year existence.

The reason I say that is because Toronto and Canada as a Country are known for its love of Hockey, basketball was the furthest thing from the minds of the people of Canada.

Let’s go back in time for a second and look at this team’s overall history, the Raptors came into the league in 1995

The first few years were very challenging in terms of wins and losses and personnel.

As the team had players come and go, most notably Vince Carter, Tracy Mcgrady, Damon Stoudamire and Chris Bosh.

Out of these names I mentioned only Chris Bosh went on to win a championship not with the Raptors but with the Miami Heat in 2012 and 2013.

So Ujiri was left with only one choice: He had to trade away a franchise player in Demar DeRozan, in exchange for Kawhi Leonard and Green.

And the gamble paid off as the Toronto Raptors are NBA Champions, now the question can the repeat as champions or will the franchise have to wait another 25 years.

Another question that remains is will Kawhi stay or will he leave and go play for his hometown Los Angeles Clippers?
