Toronto Raptors

Toronto Raptors is a professional basketball team based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. In 2019, they achieved their first championship in the NBA by winning the series (4-2) against the Golden State Warriors. With this championship, it became the first Canadian team to become champion in the USA Professional Basketball League. Larry O’Brien is the first Canadian team to win the Championship Cup. They are part of the Atlantic Group of the Eastern Conference in the US Professional Basketball League (NBA). The team was founded in 1995 with the Vancouver Grizzlies as part of the NBA’s progression to Canada. Grizzlies became the only Canadian team in the NBA when they moved to Memphis, Tennessee in 2001. They originally played home games on SkyDome before moving to Air Canada Center in 1999. Like progress teams, the Raptors started to compete on basketball courts in their early years. After Vince Carter’s win through the 1998 NBA Draft, the team organized its participation registrations and held the NBA Sports League Finals in 2000, 2001 and 2002. Carter was instrumental in leading the team to the first NBA sports league final series, where they progressed to the Eastern Conference Semifinals, which won in 2001. They failed to make significant progress during the 2002-2003 and 2003-04 seasons and were traded to the New Jersey Nets in 2004.

Its logo was changed to its current version in 2015.
