The Toronto Raptors won the 2019 NBA Championship over the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night, and Apple is paying tribute to the team with a tribute on their Canadian website.
The tribute appears only on the Canadian website, Apple.ca. Visitors are greeted with a short animation showing floating basketballs, T-Rex dinosaurs (maybe they couldn’t find a raptor on short notice?), and Canadian flag emojis.
Last night’s Raptors win against the Golden State Warriors marked the first ever NBA Championship for a Canadian team.
While a nice gesture, it had to hurt a bit in certain sectors of Apple – especially in a few executive offices. Particularly Eddy Cue’s office, as he is a huge Golden State fan.
