If you are looking for Basketball professional teams from National Basketball Association, you will find many of them that are American-based ones. It is true that American teams are all great and can offer thrilling matches to see.

Canadian-Based, Toronto Raptors Team

Let’s know more about this team first here. What did you know about Toronto Raptor? Well, yes, it is known as Canadian professional basketball team that is based in Toronto, Ontario.

It belongs to the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference in NBA. However, did you know anything about its founding? To tell you the truth, Raptors was not established many decades ago.

It was founded in 1995 due to the expansion of National Basketball Association to Canada. It became the only team based in Canada in the NBA.

Vince Carter Era

Just like the other teams, it was hard for Raptor to get a winning record in its early years. However, thanks to Vince Carter, it was finally able to set league attendance records. It even made its way to NBA playoffs from 2000 to 2002.

However, since Carter couldn’t make significant progress, he was traded in 2004 and was changed with Chris Bosh.

Chis Bosh Era

Under his leading, Toronto Raptors was finally able to qualify for the playoff berth for the first time after some years. However, even Bosh failed to make significant progress to starting from the 2008-09 season.

The Last 3 Seasons

  • In 2012-13, a new general manager named Masai Ujiri was brought in. With the help of both Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan too, this team finally got to play until the playoffs and won the second division title.
  • In 2013-14, it won a franchise record 48 games, although it did fail in the first round of the playoffs.
  • It goes the same for the 2014-15 season. It did win a franchise record 49 games, but it lost again in the first round of the playoffs.

Regardless of the latest results, Toronto Raptors can still make something different in this new season.
