Victorious Raptors Cancel Their Return to Toronto After Becoming NBA Champs

Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard holds his playoffs MVP trophy during the NBA basketball championship team's victory parade in Toronto, Monday, June 17, 2019.

So it comes as no surprise that New Balance Canada has another trick up its sleeve for Monday's parade. I totally get wanting to get a good seat, but if I were a Raps fan, I don't think I'd go that early in the hopes of snagging a good one. The music festival is lead by a number of surprise musical guests and started in 2010 and ended in 2017.

Even though the drama surrounding Leonard's stint in SA happened over a year ago, many Spurs fans are still not over the break-up and refuse to root for the player they adored most, which just seems stale at this point.

Construction workers watched the festivities from scaffolding along the route, and as traffic ground to a standstill on a nearby thoroughfare, some motorists left their vehicles to peer at the activity.

If you are partaking in the parade, you can expect to see Justin Trudeau, John Tory with his Raptors jacket throughout the parade, as well as every other Toronto socialite.

According to ESPN after the game "This is what I play for, " Leonard said.

Google Leaks its Pixel 4 Design
If Google is blocking off the whole forehead of the Pixel 4 for technology, they will likely add in a flood illuminator sensor. Or perhaps, after last year's Pixels were the leakiest phones in history, Google just doesn't care about secrets anymore.

Leonard is expected to decline a player option on his contract for next season and become a free agent. Let's Eats, sports fans!

And if Leonard ultimately decides to leave, VanVleet jokes that the Raptors will simply have to "kick his ass next year".

"Today's history lesson in room 137!" That parade saw fans climbing trees and statues on city streets to catch a glimpse of a team that included Joe Carter and Roberto Alomar.

The Raptors won their first league title in Game 6 over the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night.
