“As a true fan of basketball, here’s my heartfelt congratulations to original Raps DeMar DeRozan and coach Dwane Casey! Sana may “honorary champs” acknowledgement for them,” he said.

Lagman earlier said that he’s rooting for the the Toronto Raptors, a team that “challenges the status quo.”

“I like the Toronto Raptors just because it’s a Canadian team. It’s not that i dislike the dominance of American teams in the NBA. I just love the thought of anything that challenges the status quo–especially if it upends a cultural basketball behemoth,” said Lagman.

This is the first championship of the Toronto Raptors in its 24-year franchise history.
