US law enforcement officials allege Raptors president Masai Ujiri assaulted a police officer at Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif., moments after the Toronto team won its first National Basketball Association championship, but an eye witness disputed the authorities' account of what happened. "We've been waiting a long time for this", said Raptors fan Chris Rogers.
During the Raptors victory parade in Toronto on Monday, the basketball star said that he hasn't been focusing on his future team.
Thousands of sports fans were packed into the city centre in Nathan Phillips Square when shots rang out, sending many scurrying for cover.
"They are happy, in some cases, that their employer actually said, as I hoped would be the case, that they could take some of the day off to go to the parade". "And two, the idea of him being a third wheel on a team trying to create a superteam, that has not been Kawhi's M.O.", said Wojnarowski, according to Bleacher Report.
Hours into the celebrations, the rally took a turn: sounds of gunfire filled the overflow area near Nathan Phillips Square around 3:45 p.m.
Police have closed off the square outside city hall, and viewing screens have been set up at Yonge-Dundas Square for those who couldn't make it. It is expected that the players with the Cup Larry O'brien will travel the parade route on double-Decker buses with an open top.
