Raptors roster, as it stands:

12 guaranteed players: Lowry, VanVleet, Anunoby, Siakam, Gasol, Ibaka, Powell, Davis, McCaw, Johnson, Hollis-Jefferson, Thomas.

Raptors Commemorative Championship video will be available on Tuesday — opening night.  The NBA made the announcement and will be released in multi format (Blue ray/DVD/digital).

Sneak peak:


Emotional night for the Raptors and their fans.  Pre-game ceremony featured the championship banner unveiled (emceed by Lowry & countdown by teammates),  the giving out of the championship rings with NBA Commisioner Adam Silver and the rest of the Toronto Raptors organization.  What a night!

To add to it, the Raptors defeated the New Orleans Pelicans here on Opening Night by a score of 127-122 in OT.

The game was a see-saw battle that saw Paskal Siakam and Fred VanVleet emerge each with 34 pts on the night.  Kyle Lowry had 22 pts., while OG Anunoby had 11.  Serge Ibaka had 13 pts., while Gasol, Terence Davis, & Norm Powell had 6, 5, & 5 pts., respectively.

Forgot to mention that Lowry had a say in the design of the Championship ring.

It also happens to be the “most expensive ring ever created to date” for NBA Champions.

“I guarantee you this: Everyone last one of the players is going to say, ‘Wow."@ekoreen takes us inside the making of the most expensive championship ring to date in the NBA: https://t.co/K5YhleNicb— The Athletic Toronto (@TheAthleticTO) October 23, 2019
