toronto raptors ring

The Toronto Raptors get their championship rings and they're ridiculously huge

It's official: Toronto is  now home to largest championship ring to ever grace the NBA. 

The Toronto Raptors received their championship rings last night before their season opener game against the New Orleans Pelicans. To put it lightly, they're frickin' huge. 

The ceremony was one to remember: the Larry O'Brien was in full view, the banners unfurled, Ibaka cried a little, and the team was presented with their very shiny, Infinity Stone-sized rings. 

With more than 640 diamonds and 16 rubies each, the Kyle Lowry- and Baron-designed bling features the word North on it, along with each player's name and their jersey number on the side. 

Then there's the 1.25-carat diamond that sits on the ring face, which represents the Larry O'Brien Trophy. 

Oh yes, and let's not forget the shiny representations of the Toronto skyline, CN Tower and Scotiabank Arena included. 

The ring is so heavy, Fred VanVleet said he needed to start lifting some weights. 

It wasn't just the Raptors, everyone got a piece of the action.

Every attendee in the crowd got a replica version of the championship ring. And so did Drake, who got not one real ring but another custom version with a Raptor on it.
