The city of Toronto deserves to celebrate this championship all summer long. After all, the Raptors just won their first title in franchise history. Since the future of superstar small forward Kawhi Leonard and the organization is unknown, we don’t know the next time the Raptors will be world champions again. So, the fans and city should enjoy this title as long as they can.
Powell averaged only 1.8 points in the Finals against the Golden State Warriors, but he put up 12.3 points in the Eastern Conference Finals versus the Milwaukee Bucks, helping the Raptors erase a 2-0 series deficit and win four straight games against the top seeded Bucks.
This championship run the Raptors just completed was very impressive. Toronto trailed in every series during the Eastern Conference playoffs and took down the mighty Warriors in the Finals. By doing so, Toronto stopped Golden State from winning its third straight ring and fourth title in five years.
