Raptors Win NBA Championship
The Toronto Raptors have upset the Golden State Warriors to win their first NBA Championship. It didn't really end up being much of an upset with Golden State's misfortunes with injuries. In addition to Kevin Durant worsening his injury in the previous game, Klay Thompson left last night with a torn ACL. Durant and Thompson were slated to be big free agents when the season ends.
This was the first Championship of any kind for a Canadian team since the Toronto Blue Jays won the World Series in 1993. Shocks me that they don't have any hockey titles in that time.
This was also the second NBA Finals MVP for Kawhi Leonard. He won in 2014 with the San Antonio Spurs. He is only the third player to win Finals MVP with two teams, joining LeBron James and Kareem Abdul Jabbar.
