The Toronto Raptors were eliminated by the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night (May 27), but franchise ambassador Drake is proud of how far they got.

After being sent home, the rapper took to Instagram to thank the Raptors for their historic season.

"Historic season!" Drake writes for the caption of a photo of himself applauding courtside. "Proud to stand behind my city always! Thank you to all the guys for giving us hope and purpose! Congrats to King and the Cavs on making it to the finals and thank you to the Toronto Raptors for having me be apart of this moment!!!"

Drake is right, too. The Raptors notched a franchise-best 56 wins during the regular season, and in the post-season, made it to their first ever Eastern Conference Finals... led by DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry.

Now, the Cavaliers will either face the Oklahoma City Thunder or the Golden State Warriors in The Finals.

The Finals are scheduled to start June 2 and air on ABC.

Historic season! Proud to stand behind my city always! Thank you to all the guys for giving us hope and purpose! Congrats to King and the Cavs on making it to the finals and thank you to the Toronto Raptors for having me be apart of this moment!!! 👌🏽
