The Toronto Raptors are one win away from history as they hold a 3-1 lead over the Golden State Warriors in the 2019 NBA Finals. Not only has the Raptors historic run been big for the city of Toronto, but the team has represented "The North" as the entire country of Canada has gotten behind them.

While the original "Jurassic Park" outside of Scotiabank Arena serves as the model, the national interest surrounding the team has been reflected by the various other Jurassic Parks and watch parties that have come about in numerous provinces from coast to coast.

According to blogTO, there have been over 30 cities with their own version of Jurassic Park during the Finals.
