On Thursday, the Toronto Raptors proved that they were going to be a tough test for the Golden State Warriors in this year’s NBA Finals.
Not only that, but it appears as though anyone with an allegiance to the Raptors doesn’t have any plans of backing down when it comes to trash talk.
After game one, Drake was seen getting in the face of Draymond Green as the Warriors players left the court.

Now, New Balance is showing support for their guy Kawhi Leonard in a very bold way.
The company has revealed a massive billboard along the highway in Oakland today, which features Leonard and the caption “The King Of The North is Coming.”
It also features the Raptors first three playoff opponents, Orlando, Philadelphia and Milwaukee, all crossed out with just Golden State left to put a red ‘X’ over.
It’s unknown how long the billboard will stay up, but game three of the best-of-seven series will take place in Oakland on Wednesday.
Leonard signed a multi-year contract with New Balance back in November and wore the company’s shoes during the Raptors 118-109 win in game one.
