Classy Warriors congratulate Raptors on first NBA championship with full-page ad

TORONTO — The Golden State Warriors are showing their championship pedigree even in defeat.

The Warriors took out a full-page ad in Monday’s Toronto Star to congratulate the Raptors on their first NBA title. The Raptors beat Golden State in six games to win the championship series and deny the Warriors a third straight Larry O’Brien Trophy and fourth in five years.

“The Golden State Warriors congratulate the Toronto Raptors on their historic achievement and bringing the 2019 NBA championship to the City of Toronto,” read the ad, which featured a black-and-white photo of Warriors point guard Stephen Curry hugging Raptors counterpart Kyle Lowry after Game 6.
