Not sure this counts as a surprise since experts have been saying that the losers of this year’s NBA finals have been showing signs of weakness for a while – although no one was good enough to take advantage yet.
Enter the Toronto Raptors.
Canada’s team of the moment managed to exploit said weaknesses and played to their own strengths to win the NBA title for the first time in their history. They had never even made it to the finals before.
But they totally earned their victory. Even for someone like myself who is not exactly a basketball fan, their manner of victory and the way they played was highly impressive.
So Kudos to the team and their fans.
As for the Warriors, they can go back to the drawing board and see where they should improve. It’s not like they have collapsed to smithereens. They just need to find new ways of winning. They even showed their fighting spirit in refusing to give up after early wins from the Raptors.
It’s is great to see fresh faces winning sporting trophies. However, I do prefer that when it comes to my favorite teams, they win all the time. Naturally.
