It was a tip of the hat from the former champions, to the current team on the basketball throne.
The Golden State Warriors took out a full-page ad in the Toronto Star newspaper congratulating the team that beat them in six games in the 2019 NBA Finals.
The ad ran on the same day as the Raptors' championship parade.
With homecourt advantage in hand, the Raptors took Games 1, 3, 4, and 6 to win their first-ever NBA title.
