Team Kawhi 276 47%

The poll collected votes from Friday through Sunday, tallying a total of 584 votes. Now, it's time to see which team took home the hardware!

Game 1 - Team Vince 112, Team Kawhi 107

Team Vince top performers

Vince Carter: 29 points (13-18 FG), 6 steals, 5 assists, 3 rebounds

Damon Stoudamire: 20 points, 17 assists, 5 rebounds

Team Kawhi top performers

DeMar DeRozan: 33 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists

Tracy McGrady: 14 points, 12 rebounds, 9 assists

The OG Raptors duo of Carter and Stoudamire led the way as Team Vince took Game 1 in a closely contested battle.

Team Kawhi's captain failed to match Carter's production, only scoring 19 points shooting 8-for-18 from the field. All the younger Raptors fans that voted based on loyalty to the superstar that brought the franchise their first NBA title are extremely disappointed in Leonard's performance. Some even think he may have thrown Game 1 because his heart is with the LA Clippers now.

Game 2 - Team Kawhi 119, Team Vince 109

Team Kawhi top performers

DeMar DeRozan: 42 points (14-21 FG), 7 assists, 3 steals, 2 rebounds

Kawhi Leonard: 29 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, 5 steals

Team Vince top performers

Vince Carter: 37 points (7-11 3PT), 11 rebounds

Kyle Lowry: 16 points, 14 assists

DeMar DeRozan appears to have taken it personally that the team wasn't named after him, exploding for 42 points to force a Game 3. Despite going 2-for-10 from the field, Jose Calderon dished out 16 assists as the perfect orchestrator setting up DeRozan and Kawhi for their big games.

Carter performed again to the tune of 37 points but his team couldn't overcome a 2-for-15 shooting performance from Chris Bosh, even though he finished with a stuffed stat sheet of 12 points, 17 rebounds, seven assists, four blocks and three steals.

Game 3 - Team Vince 122, Team Kawhi 114

Team Vince top performers

Vince Carter: 39 points (13-22 FG, 9-14 3PT), 6 rebounds, 5 assists

Kyle Lowry: 20 points, 11 assists, 10 rebounds

Team Kawhi top performers

DeMar DeRozan: 33 points (14-20 FG), 5 rebounds, 3 assists

Jose Calderon: 18 points, 16 assists

Vince Carter drops 39 points and Kyle Lowry steps up clutch with a triple-double in a winner-take-all Game 3. Who's surprised by either of those things?

All the Raptors fans that picked Team Kawhi just because of Leonard couldn't be more disappointed in the 2019 Finals MVP's performance with the series on the line. 24 points on 22 shots? That's not going to get it done.


And there you have it! The 308 (53% of votes) of you that picked Team Vince selected correctly. Team Vince wins the Raptors Championship!
