    It’s history for this franchise. Who knows where it goes from here.

    The Toronto Raptors are champions of the NBA’s Eastern conference for the first time after a historic victory over the Bucks Saturday night at Scotiabank Arena.

    Led by Kawhi Leonard, the Raptors secured a place in the NBA final for the first time in franchise history after they defeated Milwaukee 100-94 in Game 6 of the Eastern Confernce final.

    Nick Nurse’s Raptors will face the reigning champion Golden State Warriors in the final with Game 1 going down Thursday night in Toronto.

    The Toronto Raptors are going to the NBA final. Stop for a minute and hold that sentence in your hand, say it out loud, scream it in the street, whatever feels right. After trailing for most of the game, the Raptors defeated the Milwaukee Bucks 100-94 in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference final for their fourth straight win in the series, so say it again: the Toronto Raptors are going to the NBA final, where they will meet the Golden State Warriors. The champs.

    MLB is dead
    NFL is failing
    NHL is shit
    NBA is the most exciting league in pro sports

    Well that was to tie into the whole Boeing being the worlds biggest plane manufacturer thing.

    I'm actually curious why Toronto would choose "raptors". This there a large amount of raptor fossils in the area or something?

    I agree that baseball sucks and the nfl is nearly unwatchable, but I still love hockey. Try soccer Larry, champions league final is June 1st. Maybe liverpool won't blow it this year

    1. When Toronto was granted an expansion franchise in 1993, the city immediately polled fans across the nation to determine what the team's new name would be.

      The final list of possibilities was filled with animal names (per NBA.com)—Beavers, Bobcats, Dragons, Hogs, etc.—but of them all, Raptors (fueled, according to Mentalfloss.com's Scott Allen, by the success of the movie Jurassic Park) was chosen as the best.
