Cleveland Cavaliers fans were more than delighted to celebrate the team’s official entry into the NBA Finals this weekend after their 113-87 victory against the Toronto Raptors.
According to AFP, Friday night’s (May 27) game at the Air Canada Centre gave LeBron James and his team a 4-2 series win, placing them in the finals for the second consecutive year. With the team one step closer to breaking a reported 52-year championship drought, critics are hopeful their matchup between the Oklahoma City Thunder or the Golden State Warriors will be a match to remember.
James’ six assists and 11 rebounds accompanied by his 33 points in Game 6 were celebrated by everyone, including Raptor’s brand ambassador Drake.

“I knew this was going to be tough game coming to this building — I just had to bring my game, I had to be in attack mode from the beginning, trust my shots,” James said after the game. “I knew once my shots started going in I could start getting my teammates involved and they were able to carry me down the stretch.”
Drake also praised the player on the ‘gram.
Alas, this didn’t stop fans from making memes of the Raptors (and Drake’s) expense.
One fan started just a few days before the big loss.
Might as well prepare the Raptors memes early ✌️ pic.twitter.com/THBt77uTK3
