Should Toronto Raptors NBA Championship have an asterisk on it now that both KD and Klay were injured for this series or no?

Some ppl think they should be an asterisk placed next to it? Is it fair?

    No because The Raptors dominated The Warriors in the regular season when everyone was healthy.

    they never have asterisks....it was a hard fought series even without KD, injuries happen even in the Finals just like it did in the Warriors run a few years back when the Cavs lost Kyrie and Kevin Love and the wins still count

    The people saying the Raptors should have an asterisk by their names to this championship are basically saying it's tainted. I say to that... they're sore losers. Durant and Thompson going down to injury is unfortunate, and huge blows to the Warriors. But it's not like they folded shop; true, they lost by double digits in games 3 and 4, but they were a run away from changing the complexion of the series. Even with the series played out as it was, they still nearly went back to Scotiabank for game 7. If we're going to call the Raptors' championship tainted or tarnished, we might as well say that the 2015, 2017, and 2018 championships won by the Warriors and the 2016 championship won by the Cavaliers are also tainted/tarnished. I don't believe that crap, they soldiered on with who was able to play, and they lost. Raptors earned this.

    Injuries are part of the game.

    If that be the case then Warriors would have at least one asterisk for their 2015 championship and and probably one more in 2017 championships due to Cavs and Spurs injuries, respectively

    The warriors still had more all-stars than the raptors despite their injuries. We won fair and square. #WeTheNorth

    Don't forget that Curry's broken finger hasn't healed yet.

    Ironically, both Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving were out when Warriors won their first championship this decade. Does that have an asterisk?
