The Toronto Raptors joined the NBA in 1995 as an expansion team alongside the Western Conference’s Vancouver Grizzlies. The two expansion teams were the first NBA franchises based in Canada.
The Raptors struggled in its early years but improved after acquiring superstar guard-forward Vince Carter in 1998. A 5-time all-star for Toronto, Carter helped the franchise reach its first post-season appearance during the 1999–2000 season. The following year, the Raptors advanced to the conference semifinals, but lost to the eventual conference champions, the Philadelphia 76ers. Toronto entered into a 4-year slump of losing seasons, which was marked by the trade of the Carter in 2004.
The Raptors returned to the postseason in 2006–2007, with a team featuring standout center-forward Chris Bosh, but were knocked out in the opening round of the playoffs in both that season and the following, and the franchise subsequently failed to post winning records for several consecutive seasons.
Toronto Raptors Ticket Holders saw the team stage a stunning turnaround in the mid-2010s as it rebounded from a last-place finish in 2013 to winning back-to-back division titles in 2014 and 2015. The Raptors nabbed 2 more division titles in 2016 and 2018, but have yet to get any closer to a conference title victory.
Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green joined the roster for the 2018-2019 season, and Toronto Raptors Ticket Holders saw the team start strong with 6 consecutive wins. On December 1, the team recorded its 20th win in 24 games, a franchise record.
It’s just a matter of time before the Raptors go deep into post-season play and start winning championship games. Raptors fans fill up Scotiabank Arena to watch the team in action. Golden Tickets has tickets for all Raptors home games.
