Frequently Asked Questions

What does "We The North" actually mean?

The Toronto Raptors use the anthem "We The North", also known as We The North Nation. It was created by Drake and Noah Shebib (producer).

Drake wrote the song at his Toronto apartment with a friend. He recorded Take Care with KanyeWest, another artist. Drake wrote lyrics about his hometown while he was there. Drake wanted it be representative of all Canadians. The song is about unity. Pride. Hope.

Drake started working on the melody for We The North when he travelled to London to film the video of his single "Nice For What." He recorded the instrumental version of the song in one take.

Drake was writing lyrics for the song when 40 suggested 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.


What number of NBA teams is Canada home to?

Since 2001, the Toronto Raptors have been the only Canadian NBA team. The Vancouver Grizzlies were an NBA team from 1995 to 2001 but relocated to Memphis and became the Memphis Grizzlies.

Each year, hundreds of Canadians travel to America for the NBA All-Star Weekend. Canada can have multiple NBA teams, as it has a population greater than 38 million. Many North American basketball fans debate the possibility of having a second NBA team. Until then, the Toronto Raptors remain the only Canadian representation in the NBA.

What number of all-stars has Toronto Raptors had?

Vince Carter and Antonio Davis are the Raptors' eight All-Stars. These players, with the exception of VanVleet and Davis, have all been part of an impressive All-Star team.


What was your favorite year with the Raptors?

The 2019 NBA Championship season was the Toronto Raptors best year. It was a thrilling and memorable season for the Raptors, marking the first time they won an NBA Championship in franchise history. Kawhi Leonard was named Finals Champion after a team record of 58-24. They beat the Golden State Warriors in six games and took home the title.

The Toronto Raptors replaced Bryan Colangelo, their then-general manager, with Masai Uriri in 2013. This move would herald a new age for the franchise. They would be one of the best in the NBA.

The Raptors were able to make a comeback under Ujiri and made it to the playoffs in 2014. Since then, they've won five Division titles and had their most successful regular season in 2018. Ujiri made a risky trade for Kawhi Leonard that resulted in DeMar DeRozan being traded to the San Antonio Spurs.

The Raptors had an incredible 2019, winning their first conference championship, and reaching the NBA finals. They defeated the Golden State Warriors in six games.

Ujiri's tenure as a Raptors player has been a huge success and should be recognized for changing the Raptors' fortunes. The Raptors are one of the top teams in the NBA thanks to his leadership and appear poised to remain contenders for many more years.

The 2019 championship season, which was undoubtedly the best in Raptors history, will be a lasting memory.

Ujiri should and will continue to be focused on building a winning culture which supports the players and staff as we move forward. This team has a bright future if it continues to be dedicated to excellence. The 2019 Toronto Raptors championship season set the standard. Now it's up for Ujiri to build on that success with his team.


When did the Raptors win its first playoff series in their history?

Toronto won their first ever playoff series, defeating New York by 3-2 in 2001. The team advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals for only the second time under Lenny Wilkens as head coach.

How To

Is it possible to bring my camera with me to a Raptors' game?

Follow the rules and plan. You will be fine. It is acceptable to bring a camera to an NBA match. You don't have to do anything illegal. But you do need to be aware of the risks involved.

First, think about whether you have to take photos during the match. As long as you're sitting near the courtside, you might be able to capture some great shots without having to lug around a bulky DSLR or even a smartphone.

These tips can help you take better photos of your favorite basketball games if you're serious about sports photography.

The second thing you must think about is which camera you are going to be using. Professional-grade cameras are essential for capturing action shots and memorable moments with your friends.

You should also decide how much time and effort you're willing to put into setting up your shot. Consider investing in a tripod, remote release, and other equipment if you are shooting hoops with children.

Finally, you have to figure out where to store your gear. You can't expect anyone to hand you a SD card or set up shop in an arena. Either pack extra batteries, cables, SD card cards, or locate somewhere to keep your stuff during the game.

It is important to plan ahead if you want high quality photos at sporting events. This will ensure that you get great photos you can use later.
