Even though we're hours away from the Raptors hosting the Golden State Warriors for Game 1 of the 2019 NBA Finals, there's plenty going on in Toronto.
It starts in the arena, with the Raptors setting out these shirts for the fans who will be in attendance:

Outside of the arena, people have been lining up to get in Jurassic Park since 6:30 a.m. this morning. The game doesn't start until 9:00 p.m...

The line, as expected, has only gotten longer in the hours since.

Jurassic Park isn't the only place fans are willing to wait to get into - there are some long lines for the Raptors team store.

There's a lot of excitement on social media as well, with the likes of Kia Nurse of the New York Liberty, Marcus Stroman of the Toronto Blue Jays and Morgan Rielly of the Toronto Maple Leafs showing their support.
with the @Raptors it's not about a city.. it's about an ENTIRE COUNTRY and that's pretty damn cool if you ask me...#WeTheNorth 🇨🇦- Kia Nurse (@KayNurse11) May 30, 2019

Even Netflix is telling people to watch the game tonight.
I don't know much about basketball but I do know that if you're watching Netflix tonight instead of the Raptor's historic game 1, then you're letting down all of Toronto, all of Canada and all of Drake- Netflix Canada (@Netflix_CA) May 30, 2019
If you get an Uber in Toronto, expect to see a lot of Raptors logos on the app.
