The Toronto Raptors have done it! Finally they can embrace NBA Championship crown after years and years of missing out.

Fans of the team went crazy last night when the last seconds of the clock counted down seeing the Raptors snatching the victory 114 – the Golden State Warrior’s 110.

The victory was certainly a celebration for ‘The 6ix’ — a nickname popularized by hometown Raptors fan and superstar rapper Drake. But the Raptors have become more than just a Toronto team, with people across the country celebrating the first Canadian team to win an NBA championship.

Dozens of cities across Ontario also held packed viewing events, as did many other places from coast to coast, including Halifax, which threw a massive outdoor block party.
