Frequently Asked Questions

What does "We The North", mean?

The Toronto Raptors have used the phrase "We The North", also known by We The North Nation as an anthem. It was written by Drake and Noah Shebib, a producer.

Drake wrote the song while visiting a Toronto friend. He recorded Take Care with KanyeWest, another artist. Drake wrote lyrics about his hometown while he was there. Drake wanted the song to represent all Canadians. The song talks about unity, pride, and hope.

Drake began work on the melody of We The North's single "Nice For What" when he went to London to film the video. He recorded the instrumental version in just one take.

Drake was writing the lyrics to the song, but 40 came up with the chorus. After hearing the hook, Drake thought it sounded like a great idea and asked if he would record it. Together, they worked to create the final product.

The official music video for "We The North Anthem," was released on October 5, 2018. It featured Shawn Mendes (Canadian singer-songwriter) performing with Drake and others.


When was the Raptors first ever playoff win?

Toronto defeated New York 3-2 in their first playoff series. They advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals under Lenny Wilkens, for the first time in franchise history.


How was the Toronto Raptors' inaugural season?

The Toronto Raptors had a terrible debut season, winning only 21 games. The 1995-1996 Toronto Raptors was the inaugural NBA season. The Raptors were one of two expansion teams that joined the league that year, along with the Vancouver Grizzlies. It was also the first NBA season playing outside of the United States.

Isiah Tom, an All Star point guard and a Detroit Pistons legend was named the team's general manager. He was involved in the draft that produced Damon Stoudamire. He would go on to win Rookie-of-the Year. They also traded for Tracy Murray and Oliver Miller. Thomas introduced a new primary emblem featuring a dinosaur playing ball and pinstripe uniforms sporting the logo on the front. The Raptors also added red and purple to their color scheme.

The Raptors' debut under new head coach Brendan Malone on November 3 ended in a victory against the New Jersey Nets at the SkyDome, but they lost their next seven games.

Murray was second in scoring with 16.2 points per game. He also led the team with 151 three point field goals. Miller contributed 12.9 points, 7.4 rebounds and 1.4 stoles to the team. Robertson contributed 9.3 points, 4.4 rebounds and four assists per game from the bench.

Despite having the worst attendance record in the league they still managed to attract over 17283 fans per match at SkyDome (now Rogers Centre).


What is the name and origin of the Toronto Raptors' Mascot?

The Toronto Raptors are an NBA franchise founded in 1995. They play their games at Scotiabank Arena.

Raptor is the Raptors' mascot. He is a giant, red dinosaur. Raptor first appeared in 1995. He also makes appearances throughout Toronto, participating in charity events and community initiatives. For his many years of support to the Raptors, he was named NBA Mascot of the Years in 2019. Raptor, a beloved figure around Toronto and in the NBA, is one of the most prominent mascots within professional sports. He is also an internationally recognized symbol of Canada’s basketball fandom.

Many in the country and throughout the city share Raptor’s enthusiasm for his team as well as its fans. With Raptor leading the way, the Raptors have become one of the most successful teams in the NBA, winning their first championship in 2019. This was a historic moment for Canadian basketball fans. Raptor continues being a source to pride for all Raptors. As long as he is around, there will be plenty Raptors pride. The Raptor is still around! Go, Toronto Raptors!


What was the Raptors' greatest year?

The 2019 championship season was the Toronto Raptors' greatest year. The Raptors won the NBA Championship for the first time in their history. It was an exciting and memorable season. Kawhi Leonard was named Finals MVP after the team posted a record of 58-24 during the regular season. They defeated the Golden State Warriors 6-1 to claim the title.

In 2013, the Toronto Raptors changed their front office, replacing then-general manager Bryan Colangelo with Masai Ujiri. This change would bring a new era to the franchise and make them one of NBA's best teams.

The Raptors were able to make a comeback under Ujiri and made it to the playoffs in 2014. They've won five division titles and had their best season yet in 2018. Ujiri was also able to make a risky yet successful trade that sent DeMar DeRozan from the San Antonio Spurs to get Kawhi Leonard.

The Raptors had an amazing 2019, winning their first conference championship and reaching the NBA finals for a record-breaking second time. They beat the Golden State Warriors in six games.

Ujiri's tenure with the Raptors has been a resounding success, and he should be credited with changing the team's fortunes. His leadership has made the Raptors one of the most successful teams in the NBA, and they look set to continue to be contenders for many years.

The 2019 championship season will be remembered as one the greatest years in Raptors history.

Ujiri, and all of the Toronto Raptors should continue to work towards creating a winning culture for their players and staff. This team is looking brighter with their continued dedication to excellence. The 2019 Toronto Raptors Championship season has set a high bar, and Ujiri and his teammates must build on this success.
