Celebs across the world are congratulating the Raptors on their first NBA championship
Drake wasn’t the only celeb celebrating the Raptors last night—a whole bunch of other big names took to Twitter and Instagram to congratulate the boys on their historic win. Here’s what they had to say.
Kylie Jenner threw a Raptors party and made (or more likely had someone else make) many themed treats:
