The Toronto Raptors is a basketball team located in Toronto, Ontario. This professional basket playing club is part of Atlantic Division of the Eastern conference in NBA. It was founded in May in 1994 as part of the NBA expansion plan to Canada and played home games at the Sky Dome till 1999 when they moved to Air Canada Centre. By 2001, they were the only Canadian team in the National Basket Association.
Just like any other expansion team, they Raptors struggled to be in the NBA in their early years till the team was acquired by Vince Carter in 1998. Since then, the team has set league attendance records and even featured in NBA play offs in 2002, 2001 and 2000.
Carter was the figure behind the figure behind the Raptors franchise high 47 wins and playoffs series in 2001 where they eventually won. The win took them to Eastern Conference semifinals.
In the preceding two seasons, Raptors never made any significant progress and was sold to New Jersey Nets where Chris Bosh became the new boss. The team continued to struggle in NBA till 2006-07 season when the then president Andrea Bargnani made a total overhaul which impacted positively on the club performance. During the period of 2006 to 2010, the club had mixed results.
The present rebuilding started in 2010 under the hands of thecurrent Head Coach Masai Ujiri. The coach has continued to receive continued support from the owners Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment. The team has continued to enjoy a huge fan base which has seen its value rise to above $399 million according to Forbes.
As the NBA kicks off on 7th October in Boston, the fans have lot of hope from the head Coach Masai and new signings Guard D.J. Augustin and Augustin Daye and hope these signings will be the avenues for the success of the team.
