Every major sports franchise needs an official glory boosting track after winning a long fought championship. The Toronto Raptors will welcome the news that The Roots and the NBA have connected for the track “Champion” After the Raptors knock out Cleveland in 7 and then go onto beat OKC in 5 they’ll be asking for the Drake remix to accompany them on their parade route down Yonge Street. Ok, everyone is entitled to a dilutional dream.

Whoever gets to jam to The Roots – “Champion” they’ll be flowing with Black Thoughts lyrical fire.“I fell in love with the game and never looked back,” he raps. “My foundation and frame, they never shook that / Been trailblazing my name into the book that / Represents all the champs who had a chance and took that.”

If my Raptors go down…I’m calling OKC in 7 over Cleveland!
