Slow your roll, Toronto.
The Raptors have yet to actually play in an NBA Finals game throughout their franchise history, and yet, ahead of Game 1 against the Warriors on Thursday, the scene at "Jurassic Park" was one of confidence bordering on hubris.
Look, we get it. It's the first Finals game in not just Toronto, but Canadian history. Our neighbors to the north are rather excited for it.
But take it from a fan base with more experience: Typically, you wait till you've actually won the championship before claiming yourselves, you know, champions.
Of course, Toronto has reason to feel confident. They're entering the Finals riding a four-game winning streak, having erased a two-games-to-none series deficit in the Eastern Conference finals.
The Warriors have plenty reason to feel confident, too, though they've yet to make any audacious proclamations.
Their back-to-back championships speak for themselves.
