Frequently Asked Questions

Which was the first season of the Toronto Raptors?

The Toronto Raptors suffered a poor debut season. They won only 21 games. 1995-1996 was the inaugural season for the Toronto Raptors in National Basketball Association (NBA). Along with the Vancouver Grizzlies, the Raptors were also one of the expansion teams that joined that league. It was also the first NBA season playing outside of the United States.

Isiah, an All-Star point guard who is also a Detroit Pistons legend, was appointed the team's General manager. He helped with the draft, which yielded Damon Stoudamire, who would go on to win Rookie of the Year. They also traded for Tracy Murray and Oliver Miller. Thomas introduced a new primary symbol of a dinosaur playing in basketball and new pinstripe unis with the logo at the front of their jerseys. The Raptors added purple, and red to their new color scheme.

Brendan Malone, the new head coach of the Raptors, won the Raptors' first game on November 3, against the New Jersey Nets at SkyDome. However, they lost seven of their next seven games.

Murray finished second on the team in scoring, averaging 16.2 points per game, and led them with 151 three-point field goals during that season. Miller scored 12.9 points, had 7.4 rebound, 1.4 steals and 1.9 block per game. Robertson added 9.3 point, 4.4 rebound, four assists, and two steals per night from the bench.

Despite having one the worst records in league, their attendance was excellent, at an average of over 17283 per game at SkyDome, now Rogers Centre.


When did the Raptors defeat the Chicago Bulls in the NBA?

The Raptors defeated Chicago Bulls in the final round of the 1996 NBA Championship. Final score: 109-108. Michael Jordan attempted a last-second shot to try and win the game for the Bulls, but it did not count because it was after the final buzzer had sounded.


What is the longest time that the Raptors have been together?

Toronto Raptors is an NBA franchise that is located in Toronto, Ontario. In 1995, the NBA added the Raptors to its expansion roster along with the Vancouver Grizzlies. The Raptors were the only Canadian-based NBA team when the Grizzlies moved from Vancouver to Memphis in 2001-02.

The Raptors, based in Toronto, play their home games at Scotiabank Arena. The arena is also used by the Maple Leafs, the city's NHL team. Since their inception in 1921, the Raptors have played in the NBA playoffs thirteen times. Their most recent appearance was in 2021 when they were defeated in six games by the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Raptors made their first playoff appearance in 1999-2000. They were defeated by the New York Knicks, division rivals, in the first round.

The fans were few and far between, and the team wasn't too exciting either. There wasn't much to cheer for, or even watch, and nobody knew why. But after years of mediocrity, the team decided to change its image and went out of its way to make itself more appealing to the public.

The team hired an agency to create a marketing strategy that would bring them national fame in 2001. They came up with the slogan "Hear us roar" using creative thinking.

The slogan was created to advertise the fact that all the games had been sold out. The only thing they needed was a catchy phrase, and a great logo. This is where agency's creative genius shines. They combined the phrase "hear them roar" with another well-known saying, "never let go." This became the Toronto Raptors' official motto.


What was the fate of the Toronto Raptors following Kawhi Leonard's departure from Toronto?

It was a record year for the Toronto Raptors. The Raptors won 53 of their 53 games in 2020. All-Star point-guard Kyle Lowry was the catalyst for the team's success. Lowry averaged 19.7, 7.5 assists, as well as 4.8 rebounds. Pascal Siakam (an All-Star forward) was with Lowry, who averaged 22.9 and 8.3 points per games. Norman Powell, Fred VanVleet, and Norman Powell were key role players who made a strong contribution to the Raptors' roster. Because of their talent and depth, the team was able to overcome injuries sustained by key players such as Serge Ibaka or Marc Gasol.

The team was coached by Nick Nurse, the Coach of Year, and Pascal Siakam (All-NBA Second Teamer). . Siakam, who averaged almost 20+ points per match, made bold strategic decision that paid off. Kyle Lowry was chosen to the 2020 NBA All-Star roster, his sixth consecutive selection.

The playoffs started later than usual this season, in August at the "Bubble", Bay Lake, Florida near Orlando. In round one, the Raptors took on the Brooklyn Nets. They won 4-0. The Raptors fell 0-2 against Boston Celtics in Round 2. However, OG Anunoby struck a buzzer-beater to win Toronto in the third round. The series went on to seven games before Boston won.


Vancouver was there a NBA team?

No, Vancouver does not have an NBA team. The Vancouver Grizzlies were the city's basketball team from 1995 to 2001. In 2001, they moved to Memphis Tennessee. Vancouver is home to the Toronto Raptors, the local NBA team. The Greater Vancouver Area also hosts professional basketball teams, such as Vancouver Volcanoes and the Canadian Elite Basketball League's BC Tigers. Numerous amateur and semiprofessional basketball teams participate in various local leagues.

Aside from playing basketball, there are many other recreational outlets for fans in Vancouver to connect with their favourite sport. Vancouver Grizzlies Alumni Association aims for former players to get together and promote basketball in British Columbia. They host clinics for young players and offer viewing parties for Raptors games.

The city's enthusiasm for basketball has not diminished following the departure from the Grizzlies. This community continues to support the sport through many different ways. Vancouverites continue to share their passion for basketball through attending games, watching Raptors games, and supporting the many initiatives taken by former players as well as other organizations working to increase awareness about basketball in the area.


Why did NBA leave Vancouver?

Because of a dispute with Vancouver's City Council over arena financing, NBA had to leave Vancouver. The City of Vancouver was to contribute $40million towards the construction a new basketball venue. This would include 12 luxury suites as well as two restaurants, a bar and a hotel. The City Council decided to give $60 million to the team owners to help pay off existing debt. This meant the city would have to borrow $200 million to build the arena, while the team owners only had to pay back $20 million in debt. This would make it so that the city's tax payers would be responsible to repay the remainder of this loan.

The City Council agreed that the plan could be approved if the NBA was willing to continue playing at Rogers Arena through the opening of the new facility. But the league refused, saying that the arena wasn’t large enough. It was too small for them to continue playing there. They felt asking them to continue playing in a smaller venue was unfair when they weren't getting any extra revenue.

The City Council asked the province for financial assistance. While the province provided $150 million for the project, the City Council required another $100 million. That was when the City decided that it would instead concentrate on building an arena downtown.


Who owns Toronto Raptors'?

Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, the owners of this team, owns it. MLSE also holds the NHL's Toronto Maple Leafs and MLS's Toronto FC. It also owns the CFL's Toronto Argonauts and the AHL's Toronto Marlies.
