If the Toronto Raptors win 2019 NBA Finals, will they visit the White House?

The Raptors are one win away from winning the NBA championship.

Toronto reached the finals for the first time in franchise history this season and will enter Game 6 against the Warriors on Thursday at Oracle Arena with a 3-2 series lead. If the Raptors fall in Golden State, they’ll have another chance to close it out at home Sunday.

Title-winning teams are typically invited to the White House. But, would the Raptors receive an invitation, even though they’re based in Canada?

There’s precedent for a team from Canada celebrating in Washington, D.C. after taking home a title in their respective league. The Toronto Blue Jays won the World Series in 1992 and visited with President George H. W. Bush that December.
