On Tuesday, October 23, the Toronto Raptors kicked off the new NBA season by defeating the New Orlean Pelicans in overtime 130-122. Before the game, the team revealed their championship banner at Scotiabank Arena. NBA commissioner Adam Silver gave the players their championship rings in a ceremony before the game. (One of the exceptions was Kawhi Leonard, of course, who now plays for the Los Angeles Clippers now.)
The rings are extravagant. It is reportedly the largest championship ring in NBA history. According to USA Today, the ring has 650 diamonds. Team ambassador Drake, who had many memorable moments during the playoffs last year, also received a ring from the team.
Even more interesting is the fact that he designed his own championship ring, one that features the iconic Raptors logo on it and features “The Boy” on the side of the ring.
